        abstract:  NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) is building high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs) for select U.S. coastal regions. These integrated bathymetric-topographic DEMs are used to support individual coastal States as part of the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program's (NTHMP) efforts to improve community preparedness and hazard mitigation. Bathymetric, topographic, and shoreline data used in DEM compilation are obtained from various sources including: NGDC; the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS); Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO); NOAA's Coastal Service Center; and other federal, state, and local government agencies, academic institutions, and private companies. The DEM is referenced to the vertical tidal datum of Mean High Water (MHW).
        purpose:  Developed for the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program in support of NOAA's tsunami forecasting and warning efforts.

        abstract:  This is an ArcGIS image service showing color shaded relief visualizations of high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs) of U.S. coastal regions. NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) builds and distributes high-resolution coastal digital elevation models (DEMs) that integrate ocean bathymetry and land topography to support NOAA's mission to understand and predict changes in Earth's environment, and conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet our Nation's economic, social, and environmental needs. They can be used for modeling of coastal processes (tsunami inundation, storm surge, sea-level rise, contaminant dispersal, etc.), ecosystems management and habitat research, coastal and marine spatial planning, and hazard mitigation and community preparedness. DEMs included in this visualization: High-resolution DEMs of select U.S. coastal communities and surrounding areas. Most are at a resolution of 1/3 to 1 arc-second (approx 10-30 m); U.S. Coastal Relief Model: A 3 arc-second (approx 90 m) comprehensive view of the conterminous U.S. coastal zone, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii; Southern Alaska Coastal Relief Model: A 24 arc-second (approx. 500 m) model of Southern Alaska, spanning the Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, and Gulf of Alaska. This map service can be used as a basemap. It has a transparent background, so it can also be shown as a layer on top of a different basemap. Please see NGDC's corresponding DEM Footprints map service for polygon footprints and more information about the individual DEMs used to create this composite view.

        abstract:  A map service showing the location and coverage of land and seafloor digital elevation models (DEMs) available from NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center. NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) builds and distributes high-resolution, coastal digital elevation models (DEMs) that integrate ocean bathymetry and land topography to support NOAA's mission to understand and predict changes in Earth's environment, and conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet our Nation's economic, social, and environmental needs. They can be used for modeling of coastal processes (tsunami inundation, storm surge, sea-level rise, contaminant dispersal, etc.), ecosystems management and habitat research, coastal and marine spatial planning, and hazard mitigation and community preparedness. Layers available in the map service: Layers 1-4: DEMs by Category (includes various DEMs, both hosted at NGDC, and elsewhere on the web); Layers 6-11: NGDC DEM Projects (DEMs hosted at NGDC, color-coded by project); Layer 12: All NGDC Bathymetry DEMs (All bathymetry or bathy-topo DEMs hosted at NGDC).

        report:  (DQ_AbsoluteExternalPositionalAccuracy)
            nameOfMeasure:  Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report
            evaluationMethodDescription:  The horizontal accuracy of bathymetric and topographic features in the DEM is dependent upon the DEM cell size and the accuracy of the input datasets used to determine corresponding cell values. Topography: NED 1/3 arc-second DEM: 10 meters, NED 1/9 arc-second DEM: 3 meters, PSLC lidar: 1 meter, CDED DEM: 8 meters. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: NED 1/3 arc-second DEM: 10, NED 1/9 arc-second DEM: 100, PSLC lidar: 100, CDED DEM: 10. Bathymetry: a few tens of meters to several hundreds of meters. Positional accuracy of input bathymetric datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cell values in DEM. Recent NOS hydrogarphic data: about 1 meter. Early 20th-century NOS hydrographic soundings are limited by sparseness of deep-water soundings, and potentially large position accuracy of pre-satellite (i.e., GPS) navigation: tens to several hundreds of meters. MLML and CHS multibeam sonar: about 5 meters Where present, recent NOS hydrographic survey data and NGDC multibeam supplant early 20th-centruy NOS hydrographic sounding. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: NOS hydrographic soundings: 10, CHS Multibeam: 100, MLML Multibeam 100.

        report:  (DQ_AbsoluteExternalPositionalAccuracy)
            nameOfMeasure:  Vertical Positional Accuracy Report
            evaluationMethodDescription:  The vertical accuracy of bathymetric and topographic features in the DEM is dependent upon the accuracy of the input datasets used to determine corresponding cell values. Topography: USGS NED 1/3 arc-second DEM: 7 to 15 meters, USGS NED 1/9 arc-second DEM: approximately 1 meter depending on source, PSLC lidar: approximately 1 meter, CDED DEM: 5 to 10 meters. DEM cell relative-contribution factors: USGS NED 1/3 arc-second DEM: 10, USGS NED 1/9 arc-second DEM: 100, PSLC lidar: 100, CDED DEM, 10. Bathymetry: 30 meters to 5% of water depth. Vertical accuracy of input bathymetric datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cells in DEM. GPS-navigated NGDC multibeam sonar and CHS multibeam sonar data: about 0.1 meter. Early 20th-century NOS hydrographic soundings and some NGDC marine trackline geophysics data are limited by sparseness of deep-water soundings, and potentially large position accuracy of pre-satellite (i.e., GPS) navigation: several tens of meters. Where present, recent NOS hydrographic data supersede early 20th-centruy NOS hydrographic sounding data values in the DEM. DEM cell relative-contribution factors: NOS hydrographic soundings: 10, CHS multibeam: 100, MLML multibeam: 100. Gridding interpolation to determine cell values between sparse NOS hydrographic soundings degrades the vertical accuracy of elevations.
            result:
        report:  (DQ_CompletenessCommission)
            evaluationMethodDescription:  NGDC made every effort to obtain all available digital topographic and bathymetric datasets in the region for use in building the DEM.
            result:
        report:  (DQ_ConceptualConsistency)
            measureDescription:  Datasets were visually compared internally and externally (with other overlapping datasets and satellite images and maps) in ESRI ArcGIS and Applied Imagery QT Modeler for identification of anomalous elevations or data inconsistencies. Where elevation inconsistencies occurred, the most recent and/or highest resolution data set was selected for use in that region. Elevations in the older and/or lower-resolution datasets were deleted prior to building the DEM.

        lineage:  (LI_Lineage)
            processStep:  (LE_ProcessStep)
                description:  All datasets obtained by NGDC were converted to common horizontal and vertical datums of NAD 83/WGS 84 geographic and NAVD 88, respectively, using FME or ArcGIS. They were also converted to common file format, ESRI point shapefiles or digital rasters, for visualization and inspection.

                  DateTime:  2010-08-15T00:00:00
            processStep:  (LE_ProcessStep)
                description:  xyz files of the bathymetric data were surfaced using GMT's 'surface' tool onto a 1/3 arc-second grid that interpolated to fill empty cells. Points extracted every 10 meters along the coastline were also included to ensure that the bathymetric grid reached zero at the coast. The resulting Arc ASCII grid was imported into ArcGIS and clipped to the coastline to remove values over land.

                  DateTime:  2010-11-15T00:00:00
            processStep:  (LE_ProcessStep)
                description:  xyz files for each input dataset were gridded using MB-System's 'mbgrid' tool, which utilizes a high-tension spline interpolation method to fill grid cells with no input elevation values. Preferential weighting was given to more recent, higher-accuracy datasets. Gridding was performed in quadrants, each with a 5% data buffer. The grids were imported in ArcGIS and seamlessly merged to create the final DEM.

                  DateTime:  2010-12-20T00:00:00
            processStep:  (LE_ProcessStep)
                description:  The DEM was quantitatively evaluated by converting to UTM-zone coordinates (units of meters horizontally and vertically) and then creating a slope grid to identify gridding artifacts in the DEM. A conversion grid was created using VDatum points to convert the NAVD 88 San Juan Islands DEM to MHW.

                                name:  Composite Shoreline of the Continental United States Derived from NOAA-NOS Coastal Survey Maps
                                description:  NOAA CSC compiled a vector shoreline using multi-temporal collection of NOAA coastal survey maps (T-sheets) ranging from 1901-1995. Where T-sheets were unavailable, NOAAs Extracted Vector Shoreline (EVS) was used to compile seamless shoreline coverage throughout the region.
