The 3D data suite includes a 3D Surface Model, which provides a high-fidelity, positionally accurate and photorealistic view of terrain and surface features and textures. The suite’s Digital Terrain Model product is a bare Earth elevation data layer generated with fully automated processing and delivered at speeds far beyond traditional technologies.
“Maxar’s high-resolution 3D data and satellite imagery are integral for high-confidence mapping, planning and operational support, which can help end users make better decisions and save lives, resources and time,” said Tony Frazier, Maxar’s Executive Vice President of Global Field Operations. “Maxar is proud to expand our partnership with the Australian Department of Defence by providing our newest 3D data products.”

The Australian Department of Defence has been a Maxar Direct Access Program partner since 2018, with the ability to directly task and download satellite imagery from Maxar’s current constellation in real-time to its ground station.
