Abstract: A digital elevation model (DEM) consists of an array of elevations for ground positions that are usually at regularly spaced intervals.

The 1-degree DEM provides coverage in 1- by 1-degree blocks and is available for all of the contiguous United States, Hawaii, and most of Alaska. The basic elevation model is produced by the Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) using cartographic and photographic ... View entire text
