Intermap and McElhanney Complete Challenging Mapping Project for the Commonwealth of Dominica and the World Bank

The highlands of Dominica have proven to be historically challenging to collect with LiDAR due to almost continuous cloud cover. We have seamlessly fused McElhanney’s LiDAR data with Intermap’s NEXTMap One elevation product to provide complete coverage of the island. Nearly one-third of the area was completed with NEXTMap One, resulting in a high-quality homogenous dataset that is accurate and maximizes value and cost-efficiency. The solution is enabled by our patented IRIS technology and will be available through NEXTWave API.

The island overview shows the red area where the LiDAR data could not be collected. NEXTMap One was used to fill in the missing area to provide a consistent, seamless, high-resolution product.
