Topography – Digital Elevation Model (3m)

US Geological Survey
None Planned

This data layer is a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) with a resolution of 3 meters. It was developed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources using LiDAR data. A DEM is a representation of the earth's topography. An accurate understanding of the topography of an area and the elevation of specific locations are vital to understanding the physical and biological processes that are occurring both on the landscape and in the atmosphere.
