Blue Marble GeographicsLogo: Blue Marble Geographics added NEXTMap worldwide elevation data — which includes Intermap’s newest generation of NEXTMap One — as an online streaming service within Global Mapper.

According to Blue Marble, NEXTMap One, developed by Intermap Technologies, offers both digital terrain model (DTM) and digital surface model (DSM) datasets at one-meter resolution for detailed analysis. With an active NEXTMap subscription, Global Mapper users can quickly and easily render these 3D datasets for an area of interest and make sure of the software’s extensive terrain and 3D analysis capabilities for contour generation, viewshed analysis, volume calculation and more, the company added.

The addition of NEXTMap elevation data as an online service complements Blue Marble’s 3D functionality. By offering immediate, on-demand access to the latest DSM and DTM datasets, geospatial professionals throughout the world can now efficiently conduct high-quality terrain analysis procedures without the need for locally collected data, Blue Marble said.

NEXTMap elevation data is available to Global Mapper users as a global dataset at one- to 10-meter spatial resolution. The DSM version contains both natural and man-made features, and the DTM is a clean bare earth model.

“Global Mapper users throughout the world often ask us about the availability of high-quality elevation data for their location and the inclusion of NEXTMap meets their needs perfectly,” said Patrick Cunningham, president at Blue Marble. “This data effectively expands the reach of Global Mapper by providing the opportunity for more and more uses to utilize the software’s 3D analysis functionality.”
