Brief description

The Digital Elevation Model (DEM) 5 Metre Grid of Australia derived from LiDAR model represents a National 5 metre (bare earth) DEM which has been derived from some 236 individual LiDAR surveys between 2001 and 2015 covering an area in excess of 245,000 square kilometres. These surveys cover Australia's populated coastal zone; floodplain surveys within the Murray Darling Basin, and individual surveys of major and minor population centres. All available 1 metre resolution LiDAR-derived DEMs have been compiled and resampled to 5 metre resolution datasets for each survey area, and then merged into a single dataset for each State. These State datasets have also been merged into a 1 second resolution national dataset.

The acquisition of the individual LiDAR surveys and derivation of the 5m product has been part of a long-term collaboration between Geoscience Australia, the Cooperative Research Centre for Spatial Information (CRCSI), the Departments of Climate Change and Environment, State and Territory jurisdictions, Local Government and the Murray Darling Basin Authority under the auspices of the National Elevation Data Framework and Coastal and Urban DEM Program, with additional data supplied by the Australian Department of Defence. The source datasets have been captured to standards that are generally consistent with the Australian ICSM LiDAR Acquisition Specifications with require a fundamental vertical accuracy of at least 0.30m (95% confidence) and horizontal accuracy of at least 0.80m (95% confidence).

Lineage

The Digital Elevation Model (DEM) 5 Metre Grid of Australia derived from LiDAR represents a National 5 metre (bare earth) DEM which has been derived from some 236 individual LiDAR surveys between 2001 and 2015 covering. All available 1 metre resolution LiDAR-derived DEMs have been compiled and resampled to 5 metre resolution datasets for each survey area, and then merged into a single dataset for each State. These State datasets have also been merged into a 1 second resolution national dataset.

The sourced datasets have been captured to standards that are generally consistent with the Australian ICSM LiDAR Acquisition Specifications with require a fundamental vertical accuracy of at least 0.30m (95% confidence) and horizontal accuracy of at least 0.80m (95% confidence).

All 1-metre DEMs were resampled to 5-metre-resolution using a neighbourhood-mean method for analysis. Error surfaces were created along with the DEMs by calculating the difference with the National DEM.
