How Does A Digital Elevation Model Dem Depict The Landscape?


A Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is an ordered array of number that represents the spatial distribution of elevations above some arbitrary datum in a landscape. Sampling a regular array of elevation values derived from topographic maps, either aerial photographs or the satellite images, normally generates a DEM.


The DSM is an elevation surface created by using the maximum z value to depict the tallest features on the landscape (i.e. tops of buildings, trees, powerlines, etc.).
