Terrain Modeling Services

Avail Flatworld Solutions' smart DTM technology and skills for your operational project success.

Digital terrain modeling services from Flatworld offer you the production of reports, forms and drawings to meet your requirements as a customer. With our technology and expertise, survey data can also be transformed into a terrain model base to drive instructions for onboard computers in construction and earth-moving equipment. The onboard equipment uses GPS to calculate its geospatial position and from that to locate the appropriate part of the digital terrain model (DTM).

The instructions associated with that location then configure the equipment for the correct operation: for example, cutting a slope of a given angle, length and height. These digital terrain models can integrate new data as it becomes available to track progress compared to estimates and planning. Road construction and larger commercial building projects are examples benefiting from this terrain map and GPS driven approach.

Flatworld's Terrain Modeling Services

As well cost-effectiveness, Flatworld emphasizes accuracy and fast turnaround in its terrain modeling services. Accuracy helps to avoid construction and landscaping rework, which is an additional expense that should be avoided wherever possible. Similarly, timeliness is crucial: otherwise equipment and operators that stand idle mean missed opportunities for income and profitability.

  • Close collaboration between Flatworld staff and survey teams to generate appropriate survey data
  • Customization of data processing to support your activities in planning, bidding, monitoring and archiving
  • Quality control and identification of possible areas of concern though Flatworld expert application of CAD technology
  • Production of solid terrain models for non-expert/public viewing of construction and landscaping proposals and formations
