Comparison of Elevation Datasets for Conservation Planning Terrain Analysis
Author(s): Waylon Daniels
Using spatial analysis processes to create terrain property datasets that are primary or secondary derivatives of remotely sensed high resolution elevation data (HRED) is investigated as a source of information for planning of certain conservation related practices. There are a variety of HRED products with different characteristics that influence the kind of applications they can be used for. Several elevation derivatives of three different HREDs are compared against ground truth observations for accuracy and application in making informed decisions during the conservation planning process.
