Apogee Mapping has released amLibrary, a spatial data bundle that includes the company’s four flagship products and is packaged exclusively for use by higher education institutions.

The bundle includes Apogee’s amElevation, amHillshade, amContour, and amWater. AmElevation is a national dataset of 1-arc second digital elevation data (DEM); amHillshade comprises nationwide 40, 200, and 1,000 foot contours in a smoothed vector format; amHillshade is a national set of tiled raster topography offered in both grayscale and full-color; and amWater is a premium vector hydrography dataset derived from information generated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. AmLibrary also includes 50 data layers depicting environmental, climactic, and geologic data. Bundled together, this information provides GIS users with comprehensive and detailed terrain data that can be used as a basis upon which to conduct research and perform complex spatial analyses, according to Apogee Mapping.

AmLibrary is offered exclusively to colleges and universities in either MapInfo TAB format or ESRI Shapefile format. Full product documentation, layer, and metadata are provided with the product.
