Generating DEMs on the fly
Using Equator, anyone can create a digital elevation model in minutes. Simply draw a polygon around your site, specify the resolution and generate a DEM for your project faster than ever before! No surveyor required.
High-resolution elevation data
Equator creates DEMs from high-resolution elevation data, using built-in public LiDAR data sets for Canada and the United States. Creating DEMs from LiDAR means that you are starting with the best available data, sometimes accurate to a few centimeters! When you create a DEM in Equator, LiDAR data is processed on the fly into a digital elevation model for your site.
Easily export DEMs for GIS Software
Do you need to extract elevation data for ArcMap, QGIS, AutoCAD, or Civil3D? No problem! Create and download DEMs in GeoTiff format and import DEMs into GIS software in minutes. Create base plans on day one, without waiting for ground surveys.
View DEMs in any size
Is your raster data rendering slowly in legacy desktop software? When you export a DEM in Equator, you can view raster data instantly, right in your browser, and share it with others with just a few clicks.
Next-generation topographic mapping software
No other platform allows users to create and extract DEMs from built-in, centimeter accurate LiDAR data. Download USGS DEMs for a site in minutes with Equator. Generating a digital elevation model has never been easier!
