Pléiades High-Resolution DEMs Now Available
Pleiades DEM image
Pléiades' stereo and tristereo capabilities make it possible to generate DEM products with a 1 meter or 4 meter posting, ideal for 3D modeling of urban areas and relief.
Rounding out the GEO Elevation product family, Elevation4 and Elevation1 are high-resolution DEMs. Elevation1, with a posting of 1 meter, is ideal for hydrology and oil or mineral exploration applications, while Elevation4, with a posting of 4 meters, is more suited to 3D mapping of dense urban areas or relief in steep terrain.
