Abstract

Digital elevation model (DEM) is primarily a way of visualising 2D maps, photographs and images in 3D. Common uses of DEMs are creation of relief maps, rendering of 3D visualizations, rectification of satellites images and aerial photographs, creation of different physical models, etc. DEMs can be produced by different methods. In this study, DEMs are produced by 1:25000 digital topographic maps, Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) data, Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) and Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission (SRTM) data, and the accuracy of these models are analysed.
