Terrain (DTM) & Surface (DSM) elevation models of river basins derived from airborne LIDAR survey systems. A Digital Terrain Model (DTM) is a digital file consisting of a grid of regularly spaced points of known height which, when used with other digital data such as maps or orthophotographs, can provide a 3D image of the land surface. This data is typically provided in tiles of 1km x 1km, each containing elevations in a 1m x 1m grid. Tiles are grouped and can be downloaded by area as shown on the index ‘River Basin LIDAR-Coverage Map’. Data acquired in 2009 & 2010 also contains Point Cloud files, a closely spaced (0.2m) irregular grid of elevations from which the 1m x1m grids were derived.
