Standard elevation models for evaluating terrain representation
Keywords: Terrain representation, digital elevation model, relief shading, standard data models
Abstract. Standard Elevation Models
We propose the use of standard elevation models to evaluate and compare the quality of various relief shading and other terrain rendering techniques. These datasets will cover various landforms, be available at no cost to the user, and be free of common data imperfections such as missing data values, resampling artifacts, and seams. Datasets will be available at multiple map scales over the same geographic area for multi-scale analysis.
