Vector Data Maps
A large variety of digital vector maps are available for purchase that include vector line, polygon, and point data sets for all areas of the world. These include U.S. Land Use / Land Clutter data, Garmin Digital Vector Maps, AW3D Data Sets, major world linear and point features, and Energy Data Sets as well as access to detailed international city mapping.
DIGITAL VECTOR MAPS
Vector line features are very important to give imagery and other basemaps valuable attributes and reference. Adding labels, roads, watercourses, municipal and political boundaries, and other features to base imagery can help better illustrate the location and impact of a project. Garmin continuously updates their worldwide vector data layers and updates are made available free of charge with annual or multiyear subscriptions to these data layers. Typical customers are large organizations that require an accurate and authoritative basemap upon which they can superimpose their critical business data. Examples of these types of organizations include defense & intelligence, mining, oil & gas exploration, and general GIS applications.

AW3D Data Sets
The possibilities for 3D mapping are infinite, ranging from wireless planning, city planning, infrastructure management, disaster management, environment monitoring, to applications in public health. AW3D has successfully established a highly capable ecosystem to provide a rich line up of 3D maps worldwide. Cost effectiveness, superior quality, fast turnaround time, and the flexibility to support a wide range of formats is what makes this all possible.
AW3D TELECOM FOR 5G
The AW3D Telecom is the perfect 3D elevation dataset for any simulation of wireless signal propagation. Not only does it comply with many telecommunication operators' standards, thanks to its high-accuracy, it is also applicable for any other signal propagation analyses such as car-to-car communication in a self-driving system. L3Harris provides complete datasets optimized for those purposes, including height values acquired from high-resolution satellites, and land usage classification based on sensors.
- AW3D Telecom Data Sheet
The AW3D Building 3D elevation dataset includes the shape and height of building footprints by using the latest satellite images. This dataset is for many simulations such as telecommunications, asset planning, and analysis of the view.
Samples available upon request
The AW3D Metro 3D elevation dataset is a precise 3D city model which has nation-wide or state-wide coverage. It is comprised of 3D vector models of buildings, vegetation, and bridges, and 3D raster data with 0.5 meter to 1 meter resolution. It is suitable for 5G network precise simulation, disaster analysis such as flood simulation, smart city planning, and many other applications.
Vector Data Services
L3Harris provides a wide range of high-quality professional and custom mapping services. Our robust team of photogrammetrists, programmers, and imagery scientists have over 200 combined years of experience solving problems and delivering digital vector mapping products on time and on budget.
Contour lines on a vector map are representations of the terrain surface derived from the Digital Terrain Models (DTM).
- Unmatched accuracy with intervals up to 1 foot.
Contour Vertical Interval (where applicable)
Map Scale Equivalent
Vertical Accuracy (LE90 - Linear Error with 90% Confidence)
1:600 (1” = 50’)
1:1200 (1” = 100’)
1:2400 (1” = 200’)
1:4800 (1” = 400’)
Planimetric maps show the horizontal position of features like roads, sidewalks, curb lines, bridges, building footprints and other similar construction features. These layers are derived from the stereo pairs and triangulation used to generate an accurate DTM.
Available Planimetric features include:
- Paved and Unpaved Surfaces
- Airports (runways, taxiways, aprons, helipads)
- Manmade Structures
- Water Features
- Water Structures (bridges, dams, etc)
- Disturbed areas (construction sites, mines, quarries, etc)
- Landmark features
- Street hardware (signs, billboards, bus stop shelters)
Vegetation (trees, orchards/nurseries, crops)
Vector data correlated to multi-resolution TrueTerrain products. Point, line, and polygon vectors with associated 46 total Vector Layers containing:
- High volume scalability
Vector extractions based on VMAP1-2 schema.
Building Footprints are extracted from aerial imagery and accurately represent the structure’s outline at ground-level.
- 2D building footprints correlated to multi-resolution TrueTerrain products
2D building footprints are available with optional Z-value as Building Height & Elevation Height (MSL) attributes
3D Building Models
3D buildings are extracted from stereo and pseudo stereo data and can range in detail from simple to complex geometries depending on image resolution and customer need.
- Geospecific textures derived from the imagery can be applied to the buildings where available.
- Building heights are derived photogrammetrically, resulting in accurate and realistic representations of the structure.
Multiple supported industry standard formats available, including OpenFLT, AutoCAD DXF, OBJ, and more
Aerodrome Mapping Database [AMDB]
L3Harris’ Aerodrome Mapping Databases (AMDB) are accurate and high-quality GIS datasets that can be used to efficiently supplement surface navigation in a wide variety of airport-related activities. AMDBs are compliant with multiple industry standards and are comprised of correlated TrueTerrain imagery, DTM elevation, and vectors that describe the spatial layout of an aerodrome.
- Real world consistency allows users to familiarize themselves with the aerodrome
- Can be used in ground-based operations management and on-board aircraft systems
Enhances safety and situational awareness
Detailed Vector Layers
- AMDB Layers are derived from satellite imagery which has been georeferenced using survey ground control points. Key airport features are digitized from the georeferenced imagery, resulting in location-specific point, line, and polygon vector feature classes.
- AMDB layers are organized into 5 categories related to their function within the aerodrome: Runways, Taxiways, Aprons, Vertical Structures, and Other Data.
Detailed attributes are added to the vector objects using image interpretation, publicly available airport diagrams, and customer provided data. This attribution provides additional information beyond the spatial location, allowing the user to have access to specific details relating to characteristics and function of the aerodrome features.
Supported Standards & Formats
- Compliant with ICAO industry standards such as RTCA DO-272 / ED-99
- Products are updated to current specifications and versions as they become available
- AMDB Vector layers are provided in shapefile format.
- Supported layers also available in AIXM and AMXM schemas.
