        abstract:  NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) is building high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs) to support individual coastal States as part of the National Tsunami Hazard Mitigation Program's (NTHMP) efforts to improve community preparedness and hazard mitigation. These integrated bathymetric-topographic DEMs are used to support tsunami and coastal inundation mapping. Bathymetric, topographic, and shoreline data used in DEM compilation are obtained from various sources, including NGDC, the U.S. National Ocean Service (NOS), the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and other federal, state, and local government agencies, academic institutions, and private companies. DEMs are referenced to various vertical and horizontal datums depending on the specific modeling requirements of each State. For specific datum information on each DEM, refer to the appropriate DEM documentation. Cell sizes also vary depending on the specification required by modelers in each State, but typically range from 8/15 arc-second (~16 meters) to 8 arc-seconds (~240 meters).
        purpose:  Developed for the University of Alaska at Fairbanks (UAF), Geophysical Institute for tsunami and coastal inundation modeling efforts for the State of Alaska.

        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).

            nameOfMeasure:  Horizontal Positional Accuracy Report
            evaluationMethodDescription:  The horizontal 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: 10 to 30 meters. Positional accuracy of input topographic datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cell values in DEM. USGS SRTM DEM: 15 to 30 meters. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: NGDC: 1,000, UAF GPS: 1000, DCRA topography: 1, SRTM: 100. Bathymetry: Less than two to several hundreds of meters. Positional accuracy of input bathymetric datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cell values in DEM. 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. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: NGDC digitized elevations: 1000, NOS soundings: 10, NGDC mutibeam: 0.1.

            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: 10 to 15 meters. Vertical accuracy of input topographic datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cells in DEM. SRTM DEM: 16 meters. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: NGDC: 1,000, UAF GPS: 1000, DCRA topography: 1, SRTM: 100. Bathymetry: 0.3 meters to 5% of water depth. Vertical accuracy of input bathymetric datasets limits accuracy of corresponding cells in DEM. 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: several tens of meters. DEM cell-value relative-contribution factors: NGDC digitized elevations: 1000, NOS soundings: 10, NGDC mutibeam: 0.1. Gridding interpolation to determine cell values between sparse NOS hydrographic soundings in deep water degrades the vertical accuracy of deep-water elevations.
            result:

            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 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 WGS84 geographic and Mean Higher High Water, respectively, using FME. They were also converted to common file format, ESRI point shapefiles, for visualization and inspection.

                description:  xyz files of the bathymetric data were surfaced using GMT's 'surface' tool onto a 8/15 arc-second grid that interpolated to fill empty cells. Points extracted every 5 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.

                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.
