Book Title: Digital Elevation Model Technologies and Applications: The DEM Users Manual

Author: David Maune

Book Description:

Digital Elevation Models are gaining widespread application in the analysis of geospatial data. As a relatively new technology, the quality of the digital model is a function of several parameters, which may not be obvious to the casual user. This book is the first of its kind which covers the enabling technologies, applications, and accuracy implications of DEMs. This book has special meaning to me because it covers one of the important areas of my specialty. The authors explain the underlying scientific knowledge in a manner that makes it understandable, even to non-scientists. The book is ideal for students of DEM technology and a valuable reference for experienced uses.
