Digital Elevation Model Generator

Create a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) in minutes from built-in, centimeter-accurate elevation data. Equator is an easy-to-use DEM generator for civil engineers, architects, landscape professionals, and more.

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.

Source and download DEM

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.
