Esri said Tuesday that accessibility to its online platform will help ArcticDEM address a requirement elevation data in remote locations and offer a measurement of topographic changes.

ArcticDEM — a public-private collaboration between government agencies, the Polar Geospatial Center and Esri — works to produce elevation models of the Arctic and comply with goals set by an executive order from President Barack Obama that looks to boost coordination on efforts to reverse the climate change trend.
