The Corpus Christi DEM integrates bathymetry and topography in the area surrounding the city of Corpus Christi, Texas. It covers the Gulf coast region of Texas known as the Coastal Bend, and includes the communities of Port Aransas, Aransas Pass, Ingleside, Portland, and Rockport. 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 May 2007 to support NOAA's Tsunami Program.
