VT USGS NED Surface Aspect (10 meter) - statewide

Metadata Updated: June 6, 2018

(Link to Metadata) Used ElevationDEM_DEM10M and the Arc/Info ASPECT command to create this data layer representing compass direction of the aspect (rounded to whole numbers). Input source dataset is derived from the multi-resolution National Elevation Dataset (NED), at resolutions of both 1/3 arc-second (approx. 10 meters) and in limited areas, 1/9 arc-second (approx. 3 meters). VCGI extracted the Vermont portion of the NED and re-projected into Vermont State Plane Meters NAD83 (vertical units in feet). Production artifacts were filtered out of this source data prior to acquisition resulting in a much-improved base of elevation data for calculating contours, slope and hydrologic derivatives. The NED is the primary elevation data product produced and distributed by the USGS. The NED provides the best available public domain raster elevation data of the conterminous United States, Alaska, Hawaii, and territorial islands in a seamless format. The NED is derived from diverse source data, processed to a common coordinate system and unit of vertical measure. The source data are distributed in geographic coordinates in units of decimal degrees, and in conformance with the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83). The source elevation values are provided in units of meters, and are referenced to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD 88) over the conterminous United States.
