GIS20 GIS Coverages Defining Konza Elevations


These data depict the elevation features of Konza Prairie. Record type 1 is a 2 meter resolution digital elevation model (DEM) of Konza Prairie, generated from 2006 LiDAR DEM data collected to standard USGS specifications (GIS200). Record type 3 is a 2010 10 meter (1/3 arc second) resolution National Elevation Dataset (NED) DEM of Konza Prairie (GIS202). Record type 4 is a 10 meter resolution NED DEM of Konza Prairie with a modified 3 kilometer buffer (GIS203). Record type 5 is a USGS topographic map of Konza Prairie (GIS204).

These data are available to download as zipped shapefiles (.zip), compressed Google Earth KML layers (.kmz), and associated EML metadata (.xml).

First, a mosaic dataset of bare earth gridded files was created using files that are available for download under each county's name at ([county]/BareEarth). The Esri tools for creating and adding rasters to mosaic datasets were used along with calculating cell size and building boundaries and overviews. Default values were used for tools.
