Terrain modeling is a critical foundation for many geospatial applications such as orthoimagery generation and site modeling. CompassData generates high-quality terrain models in a variety of formats and from a variety of sources. Our Digital Elevation Models may be used for orthorectification of satellite imagery, volumetric calculations, and relief map generation. CompassData is also capable of creating Digital Elevation Models for use in the growing 3D mapping industry. CompassData provides Digital Elevation Models as a stand-alone product or as a portion of a ground control and imagery deliverable.
- As a DigitalGlobe satellite imagery reseller, CompassData has ready access to a wealth of stereo imagery that can be used to construct elevation data
- CompassData was one of the first U.S. companies to employ a state-of-the-art aerial imaging system, the XCAM Pod dual camera pod. It can be rapidly deployed on all types of aircraft, enabling on-demand elevation data collection anywhere in the world
- As insured and rated sUAS Pilots with a fleet of fixed-wing and multi-rotor platforms, CompassData can generate very dense, detailed, terrain models from overlapping images
