Geomorphological Features of North Carolina

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

For these three statewide datasets of North Carolina, information was extracted and post processed from lidar derived digital elevation models (DEMs) at 10 ft. and 30ft. resolution. Datasets are currently used for the project SPARROW Modeling for North Carolina Watersheds, but have the potential to be used in numerous applications. Slope area index (SAI), the ten most common geomorphons (i.e. geomorphologic feature), and topographic openness are included in this data release and should be utilized based on user needs.
