Digital Elevation Model Technologies and Applications: The DEM Users Manual, 3rd Edition is now available as an eBook

Bethesd” The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS): The Imaging and Geospatial Information Society announces Digital Elevation Model Technologies and Applications: The DEM Users Manual, 3rd Edition is now available as an  eBook. Digital Elevation Model Technologies and Applications: The DEM Users Manual, 3rd Edition is your guide to 3D elevation technologies, products and applications.

Digital Elevation Model Technologies and Applications:
The DEM User’s Manual, 3rd Edition is your guide to 3D elevation technologies, products and applications. It will guide you through the inception and implementation of the U.S. Geological Survey’s (USGS) 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) to provide not just bare earth DEMs, but a full suite of 3D elevation products using Quality Levels (QLs) that are standardized and consistent across the U.S. and territories. The 3DEP is based on the National Enhanced Elevation Assessment (NEEA) which evaluated 602 different mission-critical requirements for and benefits from enhanced elevation data of various QLs for 34 Federal agencies, all 50 states (with local and Tribal input), and 13 non-governmental organizations. The NEEA documented the highest Return on Investment from QL2 lidar for the conterminous states, Hawaii and U.S. territories, and QL5 IfSAR for Alaska.

ASPRS has released the digital version through Amazon.com. Visit Amazon to purchase the eBook for $85. Hardcopies can be purchased from ASPRS. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QL3DJB7
