Intermap's NEXTMap USA terrain data is being used to plan aerial water missions for aircraft deployed to California. The data is also providing highly detailed terrain mapping and 3D visualization for decision makers at the national, state, and local levels. Intermap has further authorized Department of Defense Agencies to share the data at no cost for a limited time with Department of Homeland Security, state, county, and local government agencies to fight the fires and for initial remediation efforts.
Included in the high-resolution datasets are digital surface models depicting the earth's surface (including cultural features such as vegetation, buildings, and roads), digital terrain models displaying the bare earth (with all cultural features digitally removed), and orthorectified radar images (grayscale images that accentuate topographic features). The 1-meter vertically accurate and 5-meter posted digital elevation models (DEMs) enables a variety of solutions for the agency, including, but not limited to, geographic planning and disaster preparedness/management.
