Information about the elevation expressed in elevation contour lines and hypsometric layers provide a high value for many different geo-applications.
DDS can provide a wide range of ELEVATION DATA in various forms for a multitude of applications. Much of this data have been optimized for use with other DDS datasets and provide relevant information for touristic, climatic or geologic purposes. For many geographic regions, DDS can also supply 3D-views based on the elevation contour lines.
The worldwide elevation model, World 30 digital surface model, from our partner Intermap Technologies also offers versatile implementation possibilities
Maps displaying the elevation using relief effects are especially informative. DDS has designed a new software tool enabling the relief of the terrain surface to be seen.
The three-dimensional effect is produced through geographic shading, i.e. by brightening or darkening the color depending on shadow cast.
The ELEVATION DATA WITH RELIEF EFFECT are available for almost the entire surface of the earth.
