NEXTView featuring NEXTMap® Elevation Data
See the Difference. This visualization of the Munich airport shows the difference NEXTMap elevation makes. NEXTView’s precision surface detail enhances the pilot experience, while the top simulation using data from the ASTOR (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) satellite – one of the most common terrain data sources – is unusable for aerodrome operations.

World’s First Global Aviation Surface Data

  • Worldwide Coverage. Visualize 100% of the Earth’s 150 million square kilometers.
  • Detailed Surface Data. Seamless 6-meter digital surface modeling of the Earth.
  • EASA Certified. Fully certified to relevant industry standards and regulation for integration with flight safety systems.
  • High Vertical Accuracy. Incredible 3-meter vertical accuracy that meets ICAO Annex 15 specifications.
  • Detailed Obstacles. Plan safely and confidently with over one million included obstacles around the globe.
  • Aerodromes. Includes detailed modeling of aerodromes and runways.

Optimize UAV Operations

Flight Planning. Use high-accuracy terrain information in urban and rural environments to identify new bases, distribution centers, strategic positions, obstructions and vantage points

Flight Safety. Minimize risk of collision with high-precision locations of billions of obstructions worldwide, including buildings, vegetation and terrain features

Flight Efficiency. Reduce the “uncertainty envelope” on flight paths. Determine and select optimal routes, minimize elevation gains and increase payload weight

Sensor Integration. Highly suitable for real-time sensor integration for full situational awareness. NEXTView data provides strategic overview and onboard sensors provide real-time tactical overview
