Digital elevation models (DEMs) of the Greater Raleigh Area, North Carolina

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

Digital elevation models (DEMs) were developed from lidar surveys from 2013, 2015, and 2022 for the Greater Raleigh, NC Area, with 1-meter resolution. A DEM of difference raster was also developed to represent change in elevation from 2015 to 2022. The 2015 and 2022 DEMs were selected for differencing because of the superior quality level (QL2) of base lidar data used to develop the DEMs compared with the poorer quality level (QL3) of base lidar data used to develop the 2013 DEM. The DEMs were developed to use as inputs to generate a suite of geomorphic metrics for use in a machine learning model to predict streambank erosion hotspots. All files are available as Cloud Optimized GeoTIFF, meaning they are formatted to work on the cloud or can be directly downloaded.
