The USGS Elevation Availability service from The National Map (TNM) shows the best available resolution of downloadable elevation data, and is updated approximately every two weeks with National Elevation Dataset (NED) releases. NED 2- (in Alaska only), 1-, and 1/3-arc-second data are staged for download by 1x1 degree tiles in ArcGrid, GridFloat, or IMG formats in The National Map viewer, while NED 1/9 arc-second data is staged by 15x15 minute tiles in IMG format only. For additional information on the NED, go to http://ned.usgs.gov/.

This is a tiled collection of the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) and is 1/9 arc-second (approximately 3 m) resolution.The 3DEP data holdings serve as the elevation layer of The National Map, and provide foundational elevation information for earth science studies and mapping applications in the United States. Scientists and resource managers use 3DEP data for hydrologic modeling, resource monitoring, mapping and visualization, and many other applications. The elevations in this DEM represent the topographic bare-earth surface. The seamless 1/9 arc-second DEM layers are derived from diverse source data that are processed to a common coordinate system and unit of vertical measure. These data are distributed in geographic...

This layer of the National Elevation Dataset (NED) is 1 arc-second (approximately 30 m) resolution. The 1 arc-second NED are derived from diverse source data that are processed to a common coordinate system and unit of vertical measure. These data are distributed in geographic coordinates in units of decimal degrees, and in conformance with the North American Datum of 1983 (NAD 83). All elevation values are in meters and, over the continental United States, are referenced to the North American Vertical Datum of 1988 (NAVD88). The 1 arc-second NED layer provides seamless coverage of the conterminous United States, Hawaii, Mexico, Canada, Puerto Rico, other territorial islands, and in limited areas of Alaska. The...

U.S. Geological Survey, Department of the Interior - The annual Alaska IfSAR and DEM acquisition plan is part of the 3DEP initiative to collect high-quality elevation data in the form of interferometric synthetic aperture radar (IfSAR) and light detection and ranging (lidar) data over Alaska. This acquisition plan addresses concerns raised in GAO Report 13-94 regarding geospatial coordination, and supports FGDC data coordination initiatives led by the Department of Interior's Geospatial Information Officer. Mapping a State the size and complexity of Alaska through a partnered effort such as the Alaska Mapping Initiative requires dedicated collaboration and coordination across multiple levels of government.

The USGS Shaded Relief Large service from The National Map (TNM) was created from the National Elevation Dataset (NED), a seamless dataset of best available raster elevation data for the conterminous United States, Alaska, Hawaii, and Territorial Islands of the US. Derived from the NED using a hill shade technique, this base map represents a continental view showing shaded relief from USGS NED layers at resolutions of 1/3-, 1-, and 2-arc-second (in Alaska only). This hillshade is actually five separate shaded relief datasets created from the original terrain data. Each shaded relief has different azimuths and altitude values as follows: 0 45, 135 60, 270 45, 315 45, 45 45. These five datasets are then combined into...

This data collection consists of Lidar Point Cloud (LPC) projects as provided to the USGS. These point cloud files contain all the original lidar points collected, with the original spatial reference and units preserved. These data may have been used as the source of updates to the National Elevation Dataset (NED), which serves as the elevation layer of the National Map. Lidar (Light detection and ranging) discrete-return point cloud data are available in the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) LAS format. The LAS format is a standardized binary format for storing 3-dimensional point cloud data and point attributes along with header information and variable length records specific to the...

This data collection is the Original Product Resolution (OPR) Digital Elevation Model (DEM) as provided to the USGS. This DEM is delivered in the original resolution, with the original spatial reference. All elevation units have been converted to meters. These data may be used as the source of updates to the National Elevation Dataset (NED), which serves as the elevation layer of the National Map.

U.S. Geological Survey, Department of the Interior - The annual lidar and DEM acquisition plan is part of the 3DEP initiative to systematically collect enhanced elevation data (Quality Level 2) in the form of high-quality light detection and ranging (lidar) data over the conterminous United States, Hawaii, and the territories on an 8-year schedule. The FY17 acquisition plan currently anticipates collecting 225,000 sq. mi. or more depending on partnerships and other contributions to the plan. Interested parties who wish to become a funding partner with the USGS in FY17 or in future years should contact a USGS Geospatial Liaison - http://liaisons.usgs.gov/geospatial/documents/TNM_Partnership_User_ContactList.pdf....

USGS Hill Shade (or Shaded Relief) is a tile cache base map created from the National Elevation Dataset (NED), a seamless dataset of best available raster elevation data for the conterminous United States, Alaska, Hawaii, and Territorial Islands. Derived from the NED using a hill shade technique, this base map represents a continental view showing shaded relief from USGS NED layers at resolutions of 1/3-, 1-, and 2-arc-second (in Alaska only). Shaded relief (or hill shade) function parameters are: point illumination is from the NW (azimuth = 315 degrees), and altitude of the light source is 45 degrees. Color characteristics are the result of applying a color ramp in which RGB values range from white (RGB: 255, 255,...
