Terrain Data in Developing Cloud Belt Countries

October 4th, 2013 by Ryan Hamilton

The demand for terrain data in developing countries within the equatorial cloud belt has really exploded in the last few years. Intermap® has always had an advantage in collecting 5-meter radar data in countries along the cloud belt due to the active sensor nature of radar and its ability to see through clouds.

However, getting funding for the acquisition of these countries is usually a long, complex process. Fortunately, we’ve developed World 30™, a 30-meter posted global dataset that has better vertical accuracy than any other global DEM available. World 30 has allowed Intermap to sell DEM data in countries that are desperate for improved terrain models and cannot wait for the budget approvals and collection/processing time of a custom acquisition. The World 30 dataset acts as a perfect intermediary dataset for these countries allowing them to move ahead with their mapping programs and get immediate full country terrain data at a fraction of the price of any other data acquisition method.
