Product description 

NEXTMap 5 as a Service provides seamless, homogeneous, and high resolution digital elevation data and images for Western Europe and America (on-demand), collected using advanced technologies, to enable accurate geospatial analysis across the globe.

The NEXTMap 5 as a Service high-resolution database consists of:

  • A digital surface model (DSM) containing elevations of natural terrain features, in addition to vegetation and cultural features such as buildings.
  • A digital terrain model (DTM), or bare-Earth model, produced by manually editing the DSM to remove vegetation and cultural features, leaving only elevations of natural terrain features.
  • An orthorectified radar image (ORI) offering a high-resolution, realistic view of topographic features like rivers and road networks, which can be produced regardless of cloud cover (unlike optical satellite imagery). This is effective for detailed feature collection.

Key features and benefits:

  • Current terrain data, updated continuously, allowing more accurate cross-border geospatial analysis
  • Void-filled to eliminate gaps and interpolated data, allowing users to plan across large areas without worrying about seam lines or random errors
  • Intermap’s IFSAR sensors penetrate clouds, smoke and haze to produce sharp, cloud-free, highly detailed images in all weather conditions
  • Off the shelf country wide DTM and DSM mosaics for large projects

The product comes on cloudeo Workbench, which gives you access to the purchased elevation data together with possibility to upload your own software to process and analyse the data, or to choose from various geosoftware on cloudeo store

Configure and order 

  • Area of interest (AOI): Select one of your AOIs from your profile or draw a polygon on the map to define a new one. For best results we recommend to use areas with less than 900 km².
  • Datasets: Choose which type of datasets you wish to use with the service.
  • Additional datasets: You may select the ORI as additional dataset.
  • License: You can select a time license (1 month, 6 months, 12 months) or a permanent license.
  • Please note: Time licenses require a cloudeo Workbench which you need to order separately.
  • Remarks: Insert here any questions or comments.
