Elevation

Publishing and Archiving

There are statewide elevation data products available (DEMs, contours) as well as source elevation data (lidar point clouds). Some are available from the Montana Data List (the older coarser resolution data products); however, all of the USGS elevation data products and source datasets are available via The National Map. See the table below for a list of statewide elevation data available via the Montana Data List.

The MSDI Elevation dataset is not archived at the Montana State Library.

1/9 arc-second (3 meter DEM)

DEM data is updated in The National Map when new publically available data has been collected. Unclear if there were releases for Montana

This higher quality data is not represented in the Montana Data List, but there may be data at this quality for parts of Montana available via The National Map.

Not requested of USGS at this time, though it may be possible in the future
