Geospatial data’s recent popularity and growth is not in mapping as in the past, but in solving real-world business problems. The diversity of applications and usages has grown exponentially as government agencies as well as private businesses realize its value. Higher quality geospatial data leads to better answers.
Here are three reasons NEXTMap data is so well suited for so many geospatial applications:
#1: It is a contiguous dataset. NEXTMap was built using airborne radar technology (IFSAR), with a small fleet of aircraft (including Lear Jets and King Airs) flying over the United States and Europe. With uniform collection specifications throughout the entire coverage area, the dataset is not a patchwork of smaller datasets. The precision and accuracy specifications are consistent throughout the entire datasets.
