STM models are actual physical models...

...that people can gather around, touch and view from any angle, allowing for a deeper understanding of the information presented. STM Solid Terrain Models provide a level of understanding not found in any computer model, ordinary topographic model or flat map. Our models can be any size - from table top to wall mounted or even tiled to fill an entire exhibition hall.

STM models are accurate and realistic
Precisely cut in dense polyurethane foam, our models hold exacting detail, giving a completely realistic rendering of the land formations. Add to that, brilliant full-color hi-resolution printing of satellite imagery, aerial photography or other graphic data on the dimensional surface and the scene comes alive.
STM models provide
better understanding

The advantages of Solid Terrain Models over flat maps and virtual computer models are many. When looking at an actual physical model the information is immediately available, everyone "gets it" right away- scale, distance, terrain, points of view, sight lines, etc. without knowing how to read a topographical map or grading plan.

There are two items that are needed to make a stunning Solid Terrain Model, the first is digital elevation data and the second is an image. We can work from data that you provide or if you do not have your own data STM can obtain that for you. But to get started please refer to our page on ordering information.
