Digital Surface Models (DSM)

  • DSMs represent ground and above-ground features including vegetation and man-made features
  • Derived from WorldView-1,-2,-3 and Pléiades stereo imagery
  • Created using state-of-the-art ATE algorithms
  • Best results over areas of low vegetation and built-up areas without highrise buildings

Technical Specifications: DSM

Vertical Accuracy25-30cm observed relative accuracy depending on ground control. 1m absolute accuracy LE90
Horizontal Accuracy3 meters CE90 (depending on the satellite imagery used as an input)
File TypeGeoTIFF format
ProjectionCustomer defined
