Comprehensive data options

Viz World includes a database of political boundaries, coastlines, rivers, major roads, named places, and relief topography covering the entire world. In addition, you can use optional data for streets, satellite imagery, topography, and more. Further enhancements are possible when including live geo-referenced feeds for traffic, elections and weather.

  • Satellite imagery - Satellite imagery is available at a variety of resolutions. Viz World users have access to online satellite imagery providers to download imagery directly from within Viz World when editing map templates.
  • Street Data - Local and highly detailed street data is available for countries and cities globally. Data is searchable by street name, address, point of interest or intersection. A street data load utility allows easy access to OpenSteetMap (OSM) data for efficient loading.
  • Traffic data - Live traffic from leading providers is integrated in Viz World to give traffic flow information, incidents and other location-based feed information. 
  • Relief topography - The relief data included with Viz World originates from the USGS (US Geological Survey) and has a 1km resolution. Higher resolution Digital Elevation Model (DEM) data is also available for large areas, including 90m data for most of the world, and 30m data for all of the USA and some European countries.
  • KML/KMZ data - Import custom vector data in .kml and .kmz formats from a variety of open source vendors or create your own. The option allows broadcasters to use custom data that is specific for their regional needs.
