Elevation 4

Elevation 4 from Airbus provides very high-resolution terrain relief models on demand. Elevation 4 is ideally suited for any relief (urban or environmental). The models are made from Pleiades satellite imagery, with its outstanding agility as a constellation, making it the ideal solution for accurate 3D modeling.

Stereo or Tristereo can be acquired over large areas and processed into a smart 3D database to match any of your needs, including exploration, civil engineering projects, and land management. When you order Elevation 4, production is tailored to your area of interest.

The models come in two formats: Digital Surface Model (DSM; a model of the ground that includes both ground and above ground features as buildings, vegetation, etc.) or Digital Terrain Model (DTM; representing the bare Earth elevation, vegetation and man-made objects removed). In addition to the elevation information, you also receive the original Pleiades imagery used to create it.
