Description:

Abstract:

Intermap's DEM products are 3D raster datasets with elevations captured at 5-meter postings or every 5 meters. They are generated using Intermap's STAR technology (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar), which is mounted to an aircraft. The Digital Terrain Model (DTM) data product represents the bare earth and is derived from the Digital Surface Model (DSM) using Intermap's proprietary algorithm and editing processes. Accuracy statements are based on unobstructed areas of moderately sloped terrain. Diminished accuracies are to be expected in areas of extreme terrain and dense vegetation. The DTM is stored as a contiguous dataset spanning continental land masses where we have captured data. It is available in specific areas of interest or in 15-minute by 15-minute tile areas. For more detailed information, refer to Intermap's Product Handbook at <http://www.intermap.com/product-handbook>.

Purpose:

The DTMs are used as a fundamental layer of information in 3D geospatial analysis and spatial information Decision Support Systems (DSS). Typical applications include storm surge analysis, flood planning and watershed analysis, radio propagation modeling, and contour generation. A number of the priority layers of spatial information recognized by the National Spatial Data Infrastructure may be derived from Intermap Technologies' DEMs including elevation, shoreline delineation, hydrography, slope, and aspect layers.

Process_Description:

The NEXTMap DTM data products are derived using Intermap Technologies' STAR-3 airborne Interferometric SAR data acquisition system. The data for this tile was captured at 28000 feet above mean sea level with a primary look direction of West and the swaths with IDs 20, 48, 55, 108, 109, 146, 206, 213, 221, 223, 234 and 240. Small areas of missing data are interpolated using continuous curvature spline over non-data areas. In larger areas of missing data, Intermap's proprietary editing process utilizes ancillary elevation data from secondary sources to fill the areas of missing data. Most incidents of missing data are due to radar shadow and layover in high-relief areas such as mountainous regions and highly developed urban areas and correspond to the look direction of the radar. Bodies of water are assigned an elevation which corresponds to the shoreline at the time the data was captured. Areas of null data are assigned the value -10000.
