The latest version of the World 30 product, announced August 21, 2013, is up to three times more accurate than competing global Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) such as NASA's Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission (SRTM) data and Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) Global Digital Elevation Model (GDEM). The World 30 dataset integrates seamlessly with Intermap's Orion Platform and provides a foundation data layer for the Company's web-based 3D Business Intelligence (3DBI®) applications including flood planning, advertising, telecommunications and risk management. World 30 enables the immediate delivery of the Company's 3DBI applications anywhere in the world.
"One of the most exciting features of our World 30 product is that it can be purchased, downloaded and used in the same day," said Todd Oseth, Intermap's president and CEO. "We've also started to see World 30 purchases as the first step in the implementation of larger Orion-based spatial data infrastructure projects around the world. It's clear that World 30 purchases can be an indicator of a customer's future interest in Intermap's other products and services."
The three key benefits of World 30 are:
Accuracy: The improved World 30 v2.0 DEM utilizes over 204 million ground control points with an accuracy of 25cm RMSE or better, to control the vertical elevation of an aggregated surface model derived from ASTER GDEM v2, SRTM v2.1 and GTOPO30. The corrected DEMs were combined with Intermap's proprietary data fusion technology, to create a seamless, void-filled and consistent dataset with a global accuracy of 7 meters RMSE.
Coverage: Intermap has applied its extensive terrain elevation knowledge and data fusion capabilities to create an application-ready product for the entire globe. All voids or anomalies found in the native SRTM or ASTER data have been meticulously removed and repaired in the World 30 dataset.
Access: Data is available instantly: (1) via the cloud as an Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) compliant Web Map Service (WMS) or Web Coverage Service (WCS) dataset, (2) via API, or (3) for purchase at Intermap's WebStore: https://store.intermap.com/MapShop.aspx?GeoLocation=World.
