Souris Watershed 2014 LiDAR DEM

File Geodatabase Raster Dataset




The DEM files can be used to generate countours and also used in a GIS envirnoment.


This Data set is comprised of 3730 1x1km tiles of 1m resolution Digital Elevation Model (DEM) covering the Souris Watershed. The data was collected on October 14 (2 lifts), 15 (2 lifts), and 19 (1 lift), 2014 for MIT by ATLIS Geomatics Inc. Tile names refer to the easting (xxx) and northing (yyyy) of the lower left sheet corner (xxxyyyy).

Data Quality 

Scope of quality information

Data quality report - Conceptual consistency
Measure description
Flown over three days in 5 lifts, to produce 3730 1x1km tiles. DEM was created from the first return points of the LAS data and interpolated to produce a 1m DEM.

Data quality report - Completeness omission
Measure description
Coverage of the Souris Watershed DEM covers the area of interest and is based on first pulse return.

Data quality report - Absolute external positional accuracy
Dimension horizontal

Measure description
The Souris Watershed DEM was interpolated from LAS data.

Evaluation method
Accuracy value is based on the aggregate error inherent in the production process and resolution of the DEM

Data quality report - Absolute external positional accuracy
Dimension vertical

Measure description
The Souris Watershed DEM was interpolated from LAS data.

Evaluation method
Accuracy value is based on the aggregate error inherent in the production process and resolution of the DEM


Process step
The Souris Watershed LAS data was captured over three days in five lifts , calibrated to ground control and split into tiles. The tiles were classified in adherence to ASPRS standard LiDAR point classes by Terrasolid software. DEM was interpolated from the bare ground points of the classified LAS data at a 1m spacing.
