San Juan, Puerto Rico 1/9 arc-second PRVD Coastal Digital Elevation Model

Metadata Updated: June 22, 2022

NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) is building high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs) for select U.S. coastal regions. These integrated bathymetric-topographic DEMs are used to support individual coastal States as part of the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program's (NTHMP) efforts to improve community preparedness and hazard mitigation. Bathymetric, topographic, and shoreline data used in DEM compilation are obtained from various sources including: NOAA; the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (UACE); and other federal, state, and local government agencies, academic institutions, and private companies. DEMs are referenced to the vertical datum of Puerto Rico Vertical Datum (PRVD) and horizontal datum of World Geodetic System 1984 geographic (WGS 84). Grid spacing for the DEM is 1/9 arc-second (~3 meters).
