We use commercial imagery and our revolutionary 3D production process to build the 0.5m-resolution Vricon Data Suite. Our products are sensor agnostic, require no ground control points, and maintain an absolute accuracy of 3m. Visualize, analyze, plan, and decide — Vricon Data Suite powers your work.

VISUALIZE & EXPLOIT THE GLOBE IN 3D
Vricon Explorer makes 3D perspectives accessible to everyone on multiple platforms. You can explore The Globe in 3D and add layers of information from your own data sources to enhance your analysis.
Vricon Engine SDK enables integration of The Globe in 3D into third-party applications.

Vricon’s mission is to build The Globe in 3D, the most accurate representation of Earth. It is a georeferenced photorealistic 3D geospatial dataset that is hosted live in the cloud. The Globe in 3D:
• Is available commercially,
• Has a 0.5m resolution,
• Is full color, and
• Maintains an absolute accuracy of 3m SE90 (Spherical Error 90%) anywhere in the world.
Our clients in the defense and intelligence fields have called Vricon a paradigm shift. Vricon’s technology offers warfighters, analysts, and decision makers the ability to work in a true and accurate 3D environment, to develop new insights, and to make better decisions faster. Think about getting in and out of a remote hostile location — with Vricon, operators can familiarize themselves with the terrain and situation and achieve better results.
Vricon employs sensor-agnostic algorithms that can process imagery from satellites and aerial and unmanned platforms. Vricon’s unique access to DigitalGlobe’s vast best-in-class archive of commercial high-resolution satellite imagery — which, today, exceeds 5 billion km2 — provides an extensive foundation to build The Globe in 3D.
Vricon offers elevation data as a derivative product of The Globe in 3D: Vricon DSM (Digital Surface Model) and Vricon DSM-10. These are provided in traditional formats and specifications, such as GeoTIFF with UTM projection. The absolute accuracy is 3m, just as for Vricon’s Globe in 3D, while the post spacing is 0.5m for Vricon DSM — a high-resolution product — and 10m for Vricon DSM-10, a mid-resolution product.
Vricon DSM-10 is a derivative of The Globe in 3D. We leverage our unique automation to generate the DSM-10 products as we are building the globe.
Vricon provides a simplified licensing model to ensure ease of access to and use of all data in the Vricon Data Suite. We offer enterprise end user license agreements for government agencies and commercial companies with no restrictions on number of users. For more information, please check our price list.
The source imagery and the build process are statistically validated using ground control points. Vricon complies with industry standards to ensure robustness, traceability, and predictability. Contact us for more information.
Vricon uses its automated 3D image-processing algorithms inside a state-of-the-art high-performance computing environment with direct access to the world’s largest global imagery archive. This creates an unparalleled geospatial capability and enables the production of The Globe in 3D at an extremely rapid rate and significantly reduced cost.
