GEO Elevation is developed for professionals who depend on accurate terrain knowledge:
• Engineering firms working on infrastructure development can complete feasibility studies more quickly and easily with accurate, up-to-date geospatial information. This can speed up decision making, help evaluate global investments and control operating costs.
• Civil security organizations can map flood hazard zones using digital terrain models to estimate slope and aspect flow-path and direction. Flooded areas can be detected beneath vegetation.
• For resource exploration, geological terrain analysis and 3D subsurface modeling help optimize field survey planning and improve assessment of natural resource potential. Considerable time and money can be saved and extraction can be simulated efficiently.
“Our clients appreciate the flexible delivery options that adapt to their individual needs,” said Patrick Le Roch, Astrium GEO-Information’s Divisional Managing Director. “We aim to simplify the access and use of elevation data. For large scale mapping projects and military operations our Elevation30 is ideal thanks to its global coverage, high accuracy and data homogeneity. Derived from SAR satellite data, Elevation10 can provide regional 10m elevation models everywhere in the world, whatever the relief and weather conditions. For all projects that require a very high level of accuracy such as pipeline planning or flood modelling our LiDAR airborne based survey Elevation+ can provide 1m DEM and beyond.” www.astrium-geo.com
