Elevation1 – Elevation4 – Elevation8

The Elevation1, Elevation4 and Elevation8 series takes advantage of 50-centimeter resolution Pleiades-1 and 1.5-meter resolution SPOT-6/7 stereo satellite imagery to create high-quality Digital Elevation Models (DEMs).

Utilizing their modern satellite constellation, Airbus produces Digital Surface Models (DSM) and Digital Terrain Models (DTM) at 1-meter, 4-meter and 8-meter resolution. In areas without existing stereo imagery, their agile satellite constellation provides the flexibility to collect new imagery for a custom DEM. With a variety of product options, the Elevation1, Elevation4 and Elevation8 series provides a solution for every budget.
