Greetings from Minneapolis!  

Our GIS and Geospatial customers have come to rely on EVC for worldwide geospatial datasets  and value-added products and services.  These solutions offer unique value and information for each customer's analytical and GIS applications. This month, we are showcasing EVC's full photogrammtric service bureau capabilities.

EVC offers more than just imagery!  We are also the preferred source for DEM generation from stereo imagery, as well as extracting 3D buildings.

Also, we hope you'll join us for our upcoming webinar on August 6th!

EVC offers products and services which exploit the full value that stereo satellite imagery offers.

In addition to offering for sale all commercial satellite imagery options on the market today, EVC is a premier imagery processing firm.  Specifically, we offer robust photogrammetric processing services for imagery delivered in stereo pairs (or triplets).  Such stereo imagery is a tremendously valuable source for geospatial information, particularly when used to create derived works.

EVC can produce extremely detailed and precise Digital Elevation Models from stereo satellite imagery.  The resolution of the DEM produced is a function of the resolution of the source imagery.  EVC produces DEM sfrom all commercial stereo imagery sources.

Typical DEM solutions include:

  • 3m DEM from WorldView-1 0.5m imagery
wv1 2d
  • 3m DEM from GeoEye-1 0.5m imagery
3m DEM from GeoEye-1 imagery
  • 5m DEM from Ikonos 1m imagery
5m DEM from Ikonos imagery
  • 5m DEM from ALOS (Prism) 2.5m imagery
5m alos

Finally, stereo imagery provides an excellent source for 3D extraction of building and other large objects.  EVC provides this service, which produces a building object with its base footprint and a height value.

3D Buildings from Imagery


In nearly all cases, regardless of where your project lies, EVC has detailed and authoritative control data that will enable us to produce a DEM with the highest absolute accuracy possible.

EVC specializes in holding extensive coverage of detailed geospatial data of all corners of the globe.   Our in-house data holdings is a topic which you have no doubt heard about from us many times. These datasets can be used for ground control to enhance the accuracy.


Customers typically use high-res DEM's and 3D buildings for a wide variety of applications.

The most common uses include:
  • Terrain database for 3D visualization modeling and simulation
  • Signal propagation modeling for Telecom networks (particularly when combined with clutter data)
  • Precision modeling for disaster response planning
  • Precision modeling for international security assessments and analysis
  • High-res orthoimagery for large-scale mapping
