Digital Elevation Mapping using Satellite Data


Creation of 30m resolution digital elevation model and topographic contour map based on satellite data.

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 water effectively, identify potential waterlogging risk areas, optimise design and placement of dams and irrigation, and design efficient tramlines for Controlled Traffic Farming systems.

Eden PA can use 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.

If you have recent data available from an RTK yield monitor or similar piece of equipment, you should consider ordering RTK digital elevation maps instead, as this will produce more precise, accurate and up-to-date results in comparison to Space Shuttle measurements, for exactly the same price.

Eden PA’s georeferenced maps can be scaled to any size for printing or in further computer-aided spatial analysis. The maps can be viewed on any computer, without the need for any specialised software.
