LAND INFO Announces Updated 10m USA Countrywide Land Use Land Cover Mapping Dataset
LAND INFO Worldwide Mapping LLC, the premier provider of mapping solutions for 5G wireless in North America, recently completed up-to-date 10m resolution thematic raster GIS data covering all 50 U.S. states. Optimized for low-band (broad-area coverage) 5G wireless planning, the dataset supports additional applications including utilities, insurance and government, and complements LAND INFO’s 1m resolution datasets that are used for mid-band and high-band 5G in more densely populated areas.
“The dataset is unique in that in addition to using 2020-2021 Sentinel imagery and numerous ancillary layers, we were able to create best-in-class mapping by incorporating into our processing aerial-derived Digital Surface Model (DSM) elevation data via our longstanding partnership with Hexagon’s HxGN Content Program,” said LAND INFO president Nick Hubing.
The HxGN Content Program offers high-resolution, countrywide aerial imagery and elevation data of the contiguous United States and Western European countries. Hexagon continuously advances the program with higher resolution products for digital twin initiatives.
“We are proud to support LAND INFO’s land-use/cover mapping solution with our high-quality DSMs,” says John Welter, President, Geospatial Content Solutions at Hexagon. “LAND INFO is a well-established partner of Hexagon, and the partnership enables various industries to gain real-world analytics for reliable insights and better-informed decision making.”
LAND INFO’s proprietary automated geospatial processing technologies include object-based image analysis and artificial intelligence where smart rulesets analyzed, classified, and merged the imagery, DSM and ancillary layers into a single information rich dataset. There are currently just over 20 classes, and additional classes can be added upon request.
