Exploration of natural resources

Actors from the energy sector have major needs for reliable imagery and elevation data. Those cartographic data are essential to conduct in-depth geological surveys, evaluate natural resources potentials and optimize each step of exploration projects.

PlanetDEM elevation data constitute essential tools for energy producers and engineering consulting companies. PlanetDEM digital elevation models provide detailed and accurate topometric information on all Earth’s land surface.

Example of project in the energy sector

The French geological survey BRGM (« Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières ») is France public reference institution for Earth Science applications for the management of surface and subsurface resources and risks. Its activities are spread over all continents and require the use of global, accurate and reliable elevation data.

BRGM technical teams have selected PlanetDEM global elevation model which meets all those criteria.
