LiDAR Data

Digital Elevation Models (DEM, also: Digital Terrain Models DTM / Digital Surface Models DSM) are available from many data sources. Some are commercial but more and more authorities release their datasets under free licenses. The table contains all the sources that we are aware of at the moment (June 2018) with a resolution of 10 m or better. For each source we checked that the data can be imported into planlauf/TERRAIN. XYZ- and Esri ASCII Grid (ASC)-files can be imported directly, other proprietary formats can be imported with our GDAL-interface. For sources marked in the MDS column, our Mesh Decimation Service is available.
