  • Elevation contour lines within the Severn catchment at 10 metre intervals. Digitised from the scanned topographic maps.

  • Spot heights (elevation values in metres) for areas within the Plynlimon catchments; digitised from scanned topographic maps of Plynlimon Catchment Areas.

  • [This dataset is embargoed until June 1, 2024]. The Digital Elevation Model (DEM) domain includes the tidally influenced Conwy estuary, downstream of the Cwmlanerch river gauge on the River Conwy and extending offshore into Conwy Bay and the Menai Strait at the coastal boundary. A number of sources were combined to generate the land elevation data, including (a) seabed bathymetry, (b) land elevations and (c) location and heights of existing flood defences. The domain topography was based on the marine DEM, Lidar Digital Terrain Model (DTM) and Ordnance Survey Terrain 5m DTM. The Lidar DTM data was used to check and, where necessary, augment the flood defences vector database.

  • Elevation contour lines within the Wye catchment at 10 and 20 metre intervals. The contour lines have been digitised from a scanned topographic map.

  • These data are digital elevation models (DEMs) of difference (DoD). They are a geospatial dataset created in raster (.tif) format and quantify vertical (z) topographic change between two dates. The data were created to support analysis of landscape change following the 7th February 2021 avalanche-debris flow in Chamoli District, Uttarakhand, India. The data also supported numerical modelling using CAESAR-Lisflood (see related data collection). They are most commonly imported into GIS software, where they can be analysed or support other forms of geospatial analysis.

  • These data are digital elevation models which describe landscape topography. The data were created to support analysis of landscape change following the 7th February 2021 avalanche-debris flow in Chamoli District, Uttarakhand, India. The data were used as standalone datasets to support this analysis, but also supported numerical modelling using CAESAR-Lisflood (see data collection). The DEMs were created from CNES/Airbus Pléiades-HR stereo satellite imagery captured in along-track mode. They are a geospatial dataset created in raster (.tif) format. They are most commonly imported into GIS software, where they can be analysed or support other forms of geospatial analysis.

  • This is a high resolution spatial dataset of Digital Terrain Model (DTM) data in South West England. The DTM along with a Digital Surface Model (DSM) cover an area of 9424 km2 that includes all the land west of Exmouth (i.e. west of circa 3 degrees 21 minutes West). The DTM represents the topographic model (height) of the bare earth. The dataset is a part of outcomes from the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology South West (SW) Project. There is also a Digital Surface Model (DSM) dataset covering the same areas available from the SW project. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/e2a742df-3772-481a-97d6-0de5133f4812

  • Hydrologically corrected digital terrain model (DTM) of Plynlimon catchments. The DTM was derived from digitised elevation data from scanned topographic maps.

  • This is a high resolution spatial dataset of Digital Surface Model (DSM) data in South West England. It is a part of outcomes from the CEH South West (SW) Project. There is also a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) dataset covering the same areas available from the SW project. Both DTM and DSM cover an area of 9424 km2 that includes all the land west of Exmouth (i.e. west of circa 3 degrees 21 minutes West). The DSM includes the height of features on the bare earth such as buildings or vegetation (if present). An overview of the TELLUS project is available on the web at http://www.tellusgb.ac.uk/.

  • The dataset details global positioning system (GPS) locations recorded for survey quadrats at six UK saltmarsh sites. Three of the sites were in Morecambe Bay, North West England and three of the sites were in Essex, South East England, each of these sites consisted of a salt marsh area and adjacent mudflat area. Each site comprised 22 quadrats on the unvegetated mudflat and 22 quadrats on the salt marsh. The locations indicated by this dataset correspond to the south-east corner of the quadrats which were 1m square and oriented with their sides aligned North-South and East-West. We combined spatial data relating to the environs of the study sites from a number of sources (Ordnance Survey Digital Terrain Models, Ordnance Survey Boundary Line, Environment Agency Saltmarsh Extents, Natural England Priority Habitat Inventory). These were rasterised and quadrat values were extracted on a pointwise basis for elevation and proximity (distance to creek, habitat edge and high water mark). Tidal height was calculated with reference to the relevant Tidal Gauge and Admiralty Standard Port information. This data was derived as part of Coastal Biodiversity and Ecosystem Service Sustainability (CBESS): NE/J015644/1. The project was funded with support from the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Service Sustainability (BESS) programme. BESS is a six-year programme (2011-2017) funded by the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) as part of the UK's Living with Environmental Change (LWEC) programme.
