Australian Digital Elevation Model Data Products

Abstract: The Australian Digital Elevation Model (DEM) has been developed using the CRES
package ANUDEM. It is available at a continental scale at two spatial
resolutions - 1/20th degree and 1/40th degree. The DEM is also available at a
finer resolution (1/60th degree or 1 minute) for individual states.

The First DEM of Australia

The first DEM of Australia at a resolution of 1/10th degree (approximately ... View entire text

Quality Numerous large errors in all of the data sets in Table I were detected and
corrected by examining remaining sinks in the fitted DEM. Elevation errors as
small as 20m were easily detected in this way. This was consistent with the
estimated errors quoted in Table I and the ... View entire text
