3dep dem elevation geophysical topography usgs


This is the highest-resolution seamless 3DEP DEM dataset for the U.S. with full coverage of the 48 conterminous states, Hawaii, and U.S. territories. Alaska coverage is partially available now and is being expanded to statewide coverage as part of the Alaska Mapping Initiative. Ground spacing is approximately 10 meters north/south, but variable east/west due to convergence of meridians with latitude.

Spatial metadata are ingested into a separate asset.

Dataset uploaded by Farmers Business Network.
