High-resolution elevation data on UP42

Build powerful 3D geospatial products leveraging digital elevation models.

Plan, construct, and monitor critical infrastructure

With UP42’s partnership with Intermap, digital elevation models with up to one-meter resolution are now available on our marketplace. The NEXTMap 3D elevation products are available as Digital Surface Models (DSM) and Digital Terrain Models (DTM), enabling you to build 3D solutions with or without surface objects, such as buildings or vegetation.

Elevation data can be used as an input to infrastructure planning use cases, ensuring the construction of railways, pipelines, and power lines are not planned across high-slope areas. Differences in elevation can also be tracked to ensure that geological hazards are monitored, predicted, and mitigated, minimizing damage and outages.


1. High resolution

Intermap’s NEXTMap One data block provides elevation models at a 1-meter spatial resolution, up to 1-meter vertical accuracy, and 3.5-meter horizontal accuracy.

2. High refresh rate and global coverage

Available for all countries and locations worldwide. Recent satellite collections are utilized to ensure data is up to date.

3. Powerful when combined

The construction and monitoring of critical infrastructure have many variables. Elevation is a powerful input, alongside weather data, satellite imagery, and more.

4. Pricing that scales

As you move from prototyping to production, our Python SDK makes it easy. Automate your workflows and seamlessly embed AIS-based insights into your solutions.

Geospatial industry leader


Based in Englewood, Colorado, Intermap Technologies is a provider of geospatial data sets, solutions, and software. The NEXTMap 3D products are seamless digital elevation models derived from satellite imagery and are available worldwide.

The NEXTMap DSMs deliver rich feature content, including vegetation, building structures, and roads. The DTMs are bare-earth elevation models from which surface features have been removed.
