In 2019 Equator Maps launched with the goal of making high quality, global dataset catalog available to everybody. We started by pre-processing and uploading the Ontario Digital Terrain Model and USGS datasets. By bringing these datasets into Equator the majority of Southern Ontario and over half of the United States became available to export a variety of products (LiDAR Point Clouds, Contours, 3D Surfaces).
As more data becomes available we continue to add it to our platform. Since 2019 we have added LINZ LiDAR, which covers a large portion of New Zealand, BC LiDAR which covers most of southern British Columbia as well as various other available data across Canada and Europe. For areas of without LiDAR coverage, we use JAXA data to provide 30m resolution exports.
At Equator we strive to provide high-quality data for the entire globe.
