UK Elevations and Maps: LiDAR DTMs, Updates & Additions

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.
