Lahaina, HI 1/3 arc-second MHW DEM

The Lahaina DEM integrates bathymetry and topography in the area surrounding the town of Lahaina, Maui. It spans the marine channels between the Islands of Maui, Lanai, and Molokai. The DEM has a 1/3 arc-second (~10 meter) cell size, and is referenced to a vertical datum of mean high water. It was built in March 2007 to support NOAA's Tsunami Program.
