Biloxi, LA/MS/AL 1/3 arc-second MHW DEM

The Biloxi DEM integrates bathymetry and topography in the area surrounding the city of Biloxi, Mississippi. It also covers the coastal cities of Gulfport and Pascagoula, and extends across the Mississippi barrier islands to the Chandeleur Islands. 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.
