Elevation Data

New! Redesigned webpage and reformated Elevation Data.

The quadrangle-based data files have been reformatted and aggregated into three files available for download (see graphic below). Also, maps of individual USGS 24K quadrangles showing elevation point locations and values can be viewed using the High Accuracy Elevation Data (HAED) Electronic Altas.

Comments are welcome: gdesmond@usgs.gov

map showing location of data coverage
What: High accuracy (+/- 15 cm vertical accuracy) elevation data
  • horizontal postions are in the North American Datum 1983 (NAD 83)
  • elevations are in the North American Vertical Datum 1988 (NAVD 88)
  • elevations in meters

When: Surveyed 1995 - 2007

Where: Southern Florida (see map on left and key below)

Who: U.S. Geological Survey

Why: Provide high accuracy data on an approximate 400 meter by 400 meter grid for modeling purposes
