Toolik Lake Grid Digital Elevation Map (DEM)

This Digital Elevation Map (DEM) was created from the contour lines of the Aerometrics orthophoto from 1996. In addition the 1 x1 km CALM grid with 121 points (every 100 m) was resurveyed in summer 2014 with a Topcon RTK. This RTK data as well as a lake and river layer was included in the DEM creation. The DEM accuracy is = +/- 1m.
