WorldDEM, world coverage, 3D, terrain

WorldDEM from Airbus Defence and Space provides pole-to-pole coverage coupled with unrivalled accuracy and quality.

WorldDEM is the new standard of global elevation models and delivers elevation data with a 4m (absolute) vertical accuracy in a 12m x 12m raster. WorldDEM provides a reliable and precise reference layer to enhance a wide range of applications.

A multitude of applications such as satellite image orthorectification, military and civil aviation, management of oil and gas fields as well as defence and security related missions, benefit from the unique WorldDEM dataset. The global coverage will also support international cooperation and cross-border mission planning, particularly when the rapid provision of accurate information is of utmost importance (for instance in case of natural or environmental disasters), the availability of a standardised, highly accurate DEM will be a major advantage.
