These complimentary online seminars focus on how Intermap's high-resolution 3D digital elevation models (DEMs) are enabling GIS and geospatial applications across a wide range of industries, including GIS, engineering, automotive, GPS, risk management, wind energy, environmental planning, wireless communications, 3D visualization, and more. These topical 45-minute interactive events feature geospatial and application-specific discussions by mapping experts, value-added partners, and end users who have successfully used our precise DEMs to develop a host of unique solutions.
Introduction to Digital Elevation Models (DEMs)
As the fields of digital mapping and geospatial analysis continue to grow, the use of 3D data is becoming more widespread. One of the most common types of 3D data is a digital elevation model, or DEM. In this Webinar, we'll talk about what DEMs are and how they differ from other types of spatial data. We'll also look at some of the sources of DEM data, their quality, and how they are generated. Lastly, we'll look at examples of how you can use DEMs in sophisticated geospatial analysis to solve real-world problems.

Imagine your dream to fly extremely low through canyons with walls so close that you have to fly knife-edge in order to survive. Now, imagine flying at this same low level by the seat of your pants, the adrenaline pumping as you snake and wind your way through canyons and vistas you never thought possible in a simulator. In this Webinar, we'll investigate the importance of reliable elevation data when creating a 3D visualization experience requiring wide-area terrain models.
When: Wednesday, August 26, 8:00 a.m. PST; 9:00 a.m. MST; 10:00 a.m. CST; 11:00 a.m. EST; 15:00 GMT
Ask the Expert Panel Discussion
Our "Ask the Expert" Webinar offers you a unique opportunity: creating your own Webinar with input and assistance from your fellow attendees. Instead of just one expert, you'll benefit from the expertise of three Intermap employees with more than 30 cumulative years of GIS/remote sensing experience who will develop a presentation focused on what's important to you. They'll address your questions on digital elevation models (DEMs), land cover classification, radar data, and applications, just to name a few possible topics.
When: Wednesday, September 16, 8:00 a.m. PDT; 9:00 a.m. MDT; 10:00 a.m. CDT; 11:00 a.m. EDT; 15:00 GMT
Oil and Gas Production
This Webinar will explore the various applications for Intermap's precise 3D elevation data in the oil and gas industry. The elevation data and radar imagery can assist geologists in extracting local structure information that can be imported into analysis software, assisting in geological interpretation, well log analysis, production and reservoir analysis, and more. Specific applications discussed during the Webinar will include well siting to determine the position, within meters, of a drilling location; pipeline routing, including through rugged terrain and populated regions; and lineament delineation, provided through large-area imagery that depicts clues about subsurface conditions favorable for accumulating oil and gas.
When: Thursday, October 8, 8:00 a.m. PDT; 9:00 a.m. MDT; 10:00 a.m. CDT; 11:00 a.m. EDT; 15:00 GMT
