Elevation 1 and 4 | Highly precise altrimetric information

The ideal solutions for accurate 3D modelling in high resolution


What is Elevation 1 and 4?

Elevation 1 and Elevation 4  Digital Elevation Models deliver highly precise altimetric information providing the best elevation data of choice for infrastructure and engineering projects. As part of Airbus Elevation portfolio Elevation 1 and 4 provide elevation information in 1m and 4m resolution. 

  • Resolution: 1m & 4m / Accuracy: 1.5m absolute vertical
  • Tailored: Production on demand for your Area of Interest
  • Up-to-date data acquisition
  • Compliant: Suitable to HRE40 (E4) / HRE10 (E1) standards (military standards (NGA))
Did you know ?

Elevation 1 and 4 are calculated based on Airbus Pléiades satellite imagery by using stereo and tri-stereo input data. The Elevation Models are available as Digital Surface Models (DSM) including the "first surface" elevations and Digital Terrain Models (DTM) representing the bare Earth elevation
