Like all our elevation products, WorldDEM products are available as:

  • DSM = Edited Digital Surface Model including editing of terrain features and with assured hydrological consistency
  • DTM: Derived from the WorldDEM™ Digital Surface Model (DSM) product by removing vegetation and man-made objects to show the bare terrain of the Earth’s surface.

This high-quality Digital Terrain Model (DTM) provides a foundation layer for applications such as civil engineering (e.g. road design, Earth work calculation), the management of natural resources as well as planning and implementation of military operations (e.g. vehicle trafficability analysis, 3D terrain visualisation).
