Surface model from aerial photos with a new format

31 January 2022

As of March 25, 2021, Surface Model will be provided from aerial images in TIFF format.

The delivery format for the product will change from LAZ to LZW-compressed GeoTIFF. The new format makes it both easier and faster to use the information.

The content of the product will be the same but the structure will be different. In the LAZ format, the information (position, color and point metadata) of the highlights are stored together in one and the same file. In GeoTIFF, the information for the highlights is instead divided into three files; height values, color and point metadata.

As of February 25, updated product documentation and demodata are available on the product page for Surface model from aerial photos .
