UP42 Partners with Intermap to Bring High-Resolution Elevation Data to UP42’s Geospatial Marketplace

By Eric Van Rees - 29th October 2020 - 07:00

UP42 announced that the NEXTMap Elevation Data Suite from Intermap Technologies is now offered on the UP42 developer platform for Earth observation data and analytics.

The NEXTMap 3D elevation products are available as Digital Surface Models (DSM) and Digital Terrain Models (DTM) at one-, five-, and 10-meter resolution.

The addition of NEXTMap datasets to the UP42 marketplace enables users to build even more powerful geospatial solutions in the areas of infrastructure management, construction planning, geologic mapping, land cover classification, forestry, resource conservation, and contour generation.

“We are excited to add NEXTMap elevation models to the UP42 platform. Our customers need this data for a range of use cases, including monitoring of vital infrastructure projects such as pipelines, powerlines and railway corridors,” said UP42 CEO Sean Wiid. “High-quality 3D data is critical in every phase of infrastructure management from construction planning to ongoing monitoring of vegetation encroachment.”

UP42 gives users direct access to extensive Earth observation datasets and advanced processing algorithms – along with cloud computing power – to create their own geospatial solutions easily and inexpensively. Users purchase just the data needed to cover their area of interest and then leverage scalable processing capabilities to analyze the datasets without investment in their own computing infrastructure.

Based in Englewood, Colorado, Intermap Technologies is a provider of geospatial datasets, solutions, and software. The NEXTMap 3D products are seamless digital elevation models derived from satellite imagery and are available worldwide. The NEXTMap DSMs deliver rich feature content, including vegetation, building structures and roads. The DTMs are bare-earth elevation models from which surface features have been removed.
