The enhanced site features 3D viewing technology based on elevation data for the whole of the UK supplied by Intermap Technologies.
The mapping firm's digital terrain model serves as the foundation for the placement and alignment of aerial photography and other geospatial images.

Intermap is also creating similar maps for all of Western Europe and the continental US.
