Description:
Abstract: Digital Elevation Model (DEM) at a resolution of 93 meters. Original data resolution was 3 arc seconds which corresponds (approximately) to a matrix of points at a spacing of approximatel;y 90 by 60 meters (although the former value will vary with latitude). Much of the information in this metadata record comes from U.S. Geological Survey website.
Purpose: Statewide or regional planning , hillshade or contour product generation for cartographic purposes
Supplemental Information: Statewide
