SIC can provide customers with <1m - 5m DSMs, DEMs, DTMs and a detailed, orthorectified stereo satellite image mosaic at <1m resolution to project planners, operation managers, and logistics managers to plan field operations in a computer environment, ensuring that the best access is provided and project objectives are achieved.
In order to provide 3D terrain modeling and visualization capabilities within a GIS or mapping computer environment, high resolution orthorectified stereo satellite image data must be available or acquired from the satellite sensors.

3D terrain modeling and visualization application requires good detail pertaining to the terrain features and terrain slopes for critical project decisions, an accurate DSM must be available. If there is no suitable DSM available for the areas of interest (AOIs), then a DSM can be acquired by some of the following:
- Stereo Satellite Image Data
- LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging)
- IFSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar)
Satellite sensors that provide stereo satellite imagery to support 3D Terrain Modeling and Visualization:
