There are times when the footprint of a building is not enough for your analysis and you need to understand the ground the building stands on. Ground elevation is critical in the flood industry, risk assessment, and many others. In order to have the most accurate analysis and understanding of the building you are assessing, you need to have the most accurate elevation data.
At BuildingFootprintUSA, our elevation data is at a 1m resolution or higher to assure that it is as accurate as possible and above all, the best on the market. We take the elevation of the entire building and break it down by maximum, minimum, and average, allowing you to quickly and easily see the full picture of the building.
We simplify this in a way so that you are able to merge our height data with our other datasets so that you’re not only seeing the ground the building is standing on, but the addresses, height, and even business information all in one table.
In this example, you can see a building that is near the blue flood zone, though it has a minimum elevation of 1.9m and a maximum of 2.2m. In comparison with it’s neighbor’s minimum of 1.2m and maximum of 2.2m a much larger gradient. Though only about 100 feet apart, these two houses could look drastically different after a natural disaster.
