Previously offered only as a worldwide data set, the DeLorme World Base Map now enables users to select the scope of coverage they want. An exceptional value at just one penny per 100 square kilometers (minimum order $10), the downloaded data can be displayed on Earthmate PN-Series GPS receivers and within Topo North America consumer software and the XMap suite of GIS applications.
The DeLorme World Base Map is truly unique in that it is seamless and horizontally accurate, with a consistent level of detail and a compelling topographic view of the Earth. It has been used extensively in U.S. government applications, oil and gas exploration, and by countless geospatial industry customers including ESRI. Now, with its value pricing and easy accessibility, it is an ideal choice for small businesses and consumers as well.
“Whether you’re planning personal travel or managing GIS projects, the DeLorme World Base Map is a highly affordable, reliably accurate resource no matter where on earth your map needs may be,” said DeLorme Vice President Caleb Mason.
The data is topological and includes major roads and geographic features, inland bodies of water, shoreline hydrography, and the latest agreed and disputed jurisdiction boundaries. The DeLorme World Base Map uses the Shuttle Radar Terrain Model (SRTM) to display digital elevation and create 3-D models on a computer.
