Introducing a 5-meter Global Coverage DEM – AW3D Standard

The Apollo Mapping sales team is always looking out for new and useful geospatial datasets to add to our already massive list of available digital elevation models (DEMs) and satellite images. And this month we are happy to introduce a 5-meter (m) DEM with near global coverage! In conjunction with our new partner, NTT DATA, we are now able to offer 5-m AW3D Standard DEM products from an archive covering more than 80% of the world. As an added bonus, you are able to search for AW3D in Image Hunter, making this DEM our fastest to query, order and deliver.

Produced from an archive of more than 3 million ALOS stereo images, AW3D Standard can be delivered as both a 5-m digital surface model (DSM) or a 5-m digital terrain model (DTM). With delivery times of 3 weeks or less (even for a DSM), there is no elevation model on the market with a quicker delivery time.

Here are a few of the crucial product specifications of AW3D Standard:

Resolution: 5-m
Date of Images Used: 2006 to 2011
Horizontal and Vertical Accuracy: 5-m LC90 and LE90
Product Levels: level 1 DSM (raw data); level 2 DSM (voids infilled); level 2 DSM (standard); level 3 DTM
Average Delivery Time: 1 to 3 weeks
Pricing: email us for your price list!
