U.S: Intermap Technologies has today announced the availability of its new global terrain product NEXTMap World 30 v2.0. It is available for license via an Application Programming Interface (API) or via Intermap”s cloud-based WebStore.
Intermap claims that the latest version of the NEXTMap World 30 product is up to three times more accurate than competing global Digital Elevation Models (DEM) such as NASA”s Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission (SRTM) data and Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) Global Digital Elevation Model (GDEM). “One of the most exciting features of NEXTMap World 30 is that it can be purchased, downloaded and used in the same day.
