Two additional LiDAR based elevation digital terrain models (DTMs) have been released within Great Britain, which means that by now Wales, Scotland and England are all partly covered by high-resolution, high-quality elevation data in windPRO.
These two new datasets come in grid-resolutions of 5m (Scotland) and 10m (England). This data-release is part of a larger update of our windPRO UK online-datasets: The ‘OS Terrain 50’ DTM has been updated to the 2020 version – and the ‘OS Raster Maps’ has been added as dynamic map service in windPRO.
