Digital Surface Model (DSM)

Digital Surface Model (DSM) An accurate representation of the relief is essential for numerous land management applications. Digital Terrain Models (DEMs) and Digital Surface Models (DSMs) are simplified representations of ground altimetry. The terrain is a representation of the elevation of the “bare ground” without infrastructure, while the DMS reproduces the shape of the earth's surface by including all permanent and visible elements of the landscape such as the ground and buildings. It is possible to add vegetation by including the [Digital Canopy Model (CNM)] (/city-of-montreal/mnc-digital-canopy-model).**This third party metadata element was translated using an automated translation tool (Amazon Translate).** 2022-05-18 Government and Municipalities of Québec donneesouvertes@montreal.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and Technology MNS -
