Spatial Insights, Inc. is pleased to announce the release of GIS-ready elevation data, available nationwide. The Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data are sourced from the 30-meter resolution USGS NED data. Spatial Insights offers the data delivered to via ftp in one business day or less, seamlessly pre-assembled by any county or MSA. Coverage of custom client-specified boundaries or of other standard geographies is available upon request.

“We recognize the need of our customers to get this data quickly and to be able to use it easily,” said Don Segal, President of Spatial Insights. “We’ve taken the pain and suffering out of working with elevation data, which originally came packaged by USGS quadrangle, and required substantial processing and manipulation. By preprocessing the data to form seamless coverage of counties and MSAs, we’re able to deliver the data in geographies that make sense to our customers and greatly reduced the time and effort required to leverage this information.”

The elevation data are directly compatible with ArcView™ or MapInfo Professional™ and are available in industry standard formats of USGS .DEM and Vertical Mapper™ .GRD.

Spatial Insights elevation data are used for 3-D visualization, slope analysis, line-of-sight studies, and site selection within the environmental, real estate and telecommunications industries. Spatial Insights is a geographic information services company specializing in providing innovative project consulting and mapping services, customized software solutions and data products for commercial organizations.
