Superior Value

Global Coverage – NEXTMap is available for all countries and locations worldwide

Rich Features & Bare Earth Models – NEXTMap is available as a natural terrain feature digital surface model (DSM) and as a bare earth digital terrain model (DTM)

Hydro Enforced – Water bodies and coastlines are flattened and corrected for accurate measurement

Seamless Dataset – NEXTMap delivers seamless coverage free of blunders, seam lines, or spikes that can be visible in other global datasets

Reliable & Cost Effective  Intermap’s budget-friendly fusion services support use of high-res data in high-value areas like cities or flood plains, while providing wider area coverage from medium-resolution datasets

Convenient Access – Datasets are available through our web portal or via API


The NEXTMap Elevation Data Suite supports these additional services and analytics:

Profile. Accurate point-to-point terrain profiles anywhere in the world. Profiles can be run over either a DSM or DTM with features, such as buildings and tress, removed. Profiles consist of 3,000 points over any distance across a city or across an entire continent.
Viewshed. Perform visibility analysis from 1km to 100km in radius, clearly showing obstructions. Viewsheds can be run over either a DSM or DTM with features, such as buildings and trees, removed.
Point Values. Fast results for up to 20 locations at a time, showing height above sea level, height of vegetation, land cover, slope, and aspect.
Clutter/Land Classification. Streamlined land classification shows colorized profile and includes both clutter type and height. Clutter type information is classified into categories including bare earth, light and heavy vegetation, urban, roads, and water.
Contour Maps. Contour maps show an alternative view of our DTM data, providing a visual aid to performing profile analysis, elevation identification, slope indication, or to create detailed maps. NEXTMap Contour is available off-the-shelf at 10m internals, but custom contours can be created for your area of interest (AOI).
