2012 NOAA Coastal Services Center Coastal Inundation Digital Elevation Model: Mobile/Tallahassee (AL/FL) WFO - Taylor, Dixie, and Levy Counties

Metadata Updated: March 15, 2024

This digital elevation model (DEM) is a part of a series of DEMs produced for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Coastal Services Center's Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts Viewer (www.coast.noaa.gov/slr/viewer). The DEMs created for this project were developed using the NOAA National Weather Service's Weather Forecast Office (WFO) boundaries. Because the WFO boundaries can cover large areas, the WFO DEM was divided into smaller DEMs to ensure more manageable file sizes.

Note: February, 2022 - This DEM was downsized after the remainder of the Florida Panhandle was updated with new data, and now only covers Taylor, Dixie and Levy Counties. The remaining references to the previous extent and naming are left for user reference until these data are updated as well.

The Mobile/Tallahassee (AL/FL) WFO DEM was split into three smaller DEMS. They are divided as follows: 1. Mobile/Tallahassee (AL/FL) WFO - Mobile County in Alabama and Escambia, Santa Rosa, and Okaloosa (portion) Counties in Florida 2. Mobile/Tallahassee (AL/FL) WFO - Okaloosa (portion), Walton, Bay, Gulf, Franklin (portion), and Wakulla (portion) Counties 3. Mobile/Tallahassee (AL/FL) WFO - Wakulla (portion), Franklin (portion), Jefferson, Taylor, Dixie, and Levy Counties.

This metadata record describes the DEM for the Mobile/Tallahassee (AL/FL) WFO - Wakulla (portion), Franklin (portion), Jefferson, Taylor, Dixie, and Levy Counties. The DEM includes the best available lidar data known to exist at the time of DEM creation for the coastal areas of Wakulla (portion), Franklin (portion), Jefferson, Taylor, Dixie, and Levy counties, that met project specification. (See Note above)

This DEM is derived from LiDAR collected for the Florida Department of Emergency Management (FDEM). Hydrographic breaklines used in the creation of the DEM were obtained from FDEM and Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD). This DEM is hydro flattened such that water elevations are less than or equal to 0 meters.

This DEM is referenced vertically to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88) with vertical units of meters and horizontally to the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD83). The resolution of the DEM is approximately 5 meters.
