EuroDEM (digital elevation model) describes the distribution of terrain or 'bare earth' heights, not including 'first surface' elevations such as vegetation and man-made structures. It is ideal for environmental change research, hydrologic modelling, resource monitoring, monitoring mapping and visualisation.
