The most detailed 3D world model is out there and it's free!

As you could suspect the only feasible way to do it is using satellites. But a regular satellite scan will not be detailed enough to give you a meter-level accuracy. Researches from The German Aerospace Center figured out a way to do it. Instead of using a single satellite they’ve launched to an orbit two satellites orbiting next to each other capturing stereoscopic scans of the surface of the Earth. The mission called TanDEM-X (TerraSAR-X add-on for Digital Elevation Measurement) consists of a pair of twin TerraSAR-X satellites equipped with interferometric radar instruments that scan the same areas from slightly different angles.

The Global Influence of the United States: A Foreign Investment View - knoema.com

During 2015, outward US net foreign direct investment (FDI) reached $345.1 billion, an amount that was not only 21.6 percent of total global financial flows but that was also almost twice the total FDI of China. Moreover, American foreign investment in 2015 was nearly five times its total value in 2005, providing a direct opportunity to increase US global influence. So, where in the world does the United States have the most influence, at least in terms of FDI? One approach to answering this question is through examination of trends in the share of inward FDI stock from the US on a country-by-country basis.

The IMF's Coordinated Direct Investment Survey dataset and the UN’s Bilateral FDI Statistics each provide FDI data by investment source and the recipient country. Supranational union.
