Major urban areas covered by NextNav’s Pinnacle service for altitude data
NextNav’s highly accurate altitude data is a significant breakthrough in geolocation technology, elevating legacy 2D solutions to reflect the 3D world we live in. The vertical positioning service helps first responders save lives by finding people faster in multi-story buildings, opens up new urban markets for location-based applications, and unlocks an entire new ecosystem of 3D geolocation products.
NextNav’s technology exceeds the FCC requirements for wireless E911 location accuracy, offering z-axis data within three meters, 94% of the time.
As part of the first set of markets in NextNav’s nationwide launch plan, the service is now available in Austin, Birmingham, Carson City, Des Moines, Las Vegas, Memphis, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, Portland OR, Reno, Tulsa, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Francisco, and San Jose.
NextNav’s network covers over 23 million people in these markets, including an estimated 94% of structures taller than two stories. NextNav is on track to fulfill its goal of providing service to 105 major metropolitan areas by April 2021.
NextNav’s SDK makes it easy to integrate 3D location into any application. Developers can draw on pre-built visualizations or construct their own using NextNav’s vertical positioning data.
