Elevation Mapping

Digital elevation maps are a computerised version of paper-based contour maps. Accurate elevation data allows better decisions to be made in efforts to manage land and water effectively, identify potential waterlogging risk areas, optimise design and placement of dams and irrigation, and design efficient tramlines for Controlled Traffic Farming systems.

Digital Elevation Mapping using RTK data

Eden PA can use your own 2cm-accurate RTK data from any recent season to produce precise digital elevation maps for your paddocks. By using data from your own machinery, Eden PA can create very accurate contour maps without needing to visit your farm and conduct expensive and time-consuming surveys.

Digital Elevation Mapping using Satellite Data

If you don’t have any recent RTK data available, Eden PA can use elevation data collected by satellites to generate a topographic contour map and Digital Elevation Model (DEM) at approximately 30m horizontal resolution. This data was captured between 2006 and 2011, and has been refined and reprocessed by engineers over time for greater accuracy. As long as there have been no significant earthworks on your property since 2006, this is an inexpensive way to get an elevation map for your property if no RTK data is available.
