Advanced Elevation Series
From city planning to oil production to flood mapping
Advanced Elevation Series allows users global access to customized models delivered directly to their desktops.
From city planning to oil production to flood mapping, many industries require the use of high resolution elevation models to complete projects and tasks. DigitalGlobe's Advanced Elevation Series produces high accuracy Digital Surface Models and Digital Terrain Models that serve as key building blocks for successful exploration, engineering, land management and simulation.
DigitalGlobe's Advanced Elevation Series provides numerous product configuration options for accuracy, resolution, type, and format. With three options, users can select the product specifications that best fit their project's elevation demand.

Accuracy and Resolution
|Focus on Core Business Functions
With the Advanced Elevation Series, there's no need for specialized hardware, software, or staffing expertise to create and process elevation models, allowing more time for users to focus on core business functions.
Now customers can have access to global elevation data without local challenges, such as permitting or in-country presence. DigitalGlobe's worldwide reach enables more efficient mapping of areas where getting a plane in the air or a team on the ground is too costly, time consuming, or unsafe.
|One Stop Shop
Bundling DigitalGlobe's Advanced Ortho imagery with the Advanced Elevation Series gives users uniformity in quality and accuracy, as well as reduces vendor management costs.
DigitalGlobe has developed a number of additional processing options to enhance the Advanced Elevation Series. Whether it's hydro enforcement, road flattening, contours or shaded relief, users can benefit from all of the additional processing their project requires.
