Digital Terrain Modeling: Acquisition, Manipulation and Applications

Naser El-Sheimy, Caterina Valeo and Ayman Habib

This is a comprehensive guide to digital terrain modeling that provides a thorough, mathematically rigorous treatment of DTM generation, manipulation, and analysis techniques and applications. This single, highly practical volume includes over 100 illustrations and: 

  • Describes photogrammetric data capture, direct georeferencing systems, LIDAR, IFSAR, and other data acquisition techniques; 
  • Explains how to determine the most appropriate DTM generation technique for any given project;
  • Offers a detailed treatment of DTM data structures, including strorage and compression techniques for grid data, as well as data filtering and smoothing procedures;
  • Covers various data interpolation methods, including KRIGING analysis techniques;
  • Develops the mathematical theory behind DTM construction to the extent that it has general applications to all surfaces;
  • Places emphasis on quality control to help professionals gain essential insight into the kind of problems and errors to expect in elevation;
  • Features a full range of highly illustrative examples and covers real-world applications.
