US: Vricon has unveiled its latest Vricon Data Suite: the 0.5m resolution Digital Terrain Model (DTM), a high-resolution bare earth elevation data layer. Vricon produces its DTM using access to massive high-quality image archives and unique automated processing that provides delivery speeds far beyond traditional technologies.
Vricon’s mission is to build The Globe in 3D by producing photorealistic 3D products and digital elevation models with unmatched coverage and delivery timelines.
“We are delighted to bring our DTM product to our government and industry users who value it for a variety of uses, such as foundation data, topographic mapping, and orthorectification,” says Vricon CEO Magnus Brege. “Like our other Data Suite products, DTM provides our users with exceptional accuracy and resolution. And we anticipate that DTM will serve as a stepping-stone to our true 3D Surface Model — from which DTM is derived — for many of our customers.”
All of Vricon’s Data Suite products are derived from the Vricon 3D Surface Model, the most accurate representation of earth. The DTM algorithm removes trees and man-made structures from the 3D data using automated processing and access to massive image archives. In addition to DTM, Vricon Data Suite includes the Vricon 3D Surface Model, Digital Surface Model, Point Cloud, and True Ortho.
