Abstract

This digital product consists of a single lidar bare earth digital elevation model (DEM) and 48 derived shaded relief images over the Warwick Mounatian Area of the eastern Cobequid Highlands of Nova Scotia.

The DEM is in a TIFF format with a grid cell size of 1 meter. The DEM was compiled by clipping and merging data from parts of two other lidar surveys: a 2010 Cobequids Highlands survey (DP ME 479, NSGI Project Number 201001) and a 2013 Tatamagouche survey (NSGI Project Number 201301). For more information on the surveys, go to the NSGI DataLocator, Elevation Explorer application (https://nsgi.novascotia.ca/datalocator/elevation/).

The 48 shaded relief images are in a JPG format with a grid cell size of 1 meter and were processed at 8 shading azimuths (0, 045, 090, 135, 180, 225, 270, 315) and 3 different altitudes (30°, 45°, 60°). The images were produced with two different vertical exaggerations (5 and 10).

The digital product was created by the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources, Geoscience and Mines Branch (GMB) staff.
