WorldDEM Streaming

Access the global WorldDEM and WorldDEM4Ortho streaming for 2D/3D analytics and rendering.

The WorldDEMTM Streaming Service provides access to the global WorldDEM™ database via two protocols. These protocols include WMTS for free unlimited access to relief map viewing and WCS for accessing the data in full resolution.

WorldDEM Streaming is made of two service components:

  • Viewing (WMTS): Browse, discover, and experience the global WorldDEM and WorldDEM4Ortho dataset by viewing the colourised relief map.
  • Data Access (WCS): Generate value added information by analysing line-of-sight, modelling run-offs, or by ortho-rectifying satellite images and create a coloured raster image, shaded relief, or contour lines map.
