GIS data

Color shaded DEM - EPSG:3035

Colour shaded relief image over Europe has been created using a hillshade dataset derived from the ETRS89-LAEA version of EU-DEM - please note that this dataset cannot be used for analysis purposes and that there are some known artifacts West of Norway.

Metadata

Additional information

The EU-DEM is a 3D raster dataset with elevations captured at 1 arc second postings (2.78E-4 degrees) or about every 30 metre.

All three datasets are made available as tiles (5x5° or 1000x1000km) and as single files:
-    EU-DEM in ETRS89 geographic (EPSG code 4258)
-    EU-DEM in ETRS89-LAEA (EPSG code 3035)
-    Colour shaded relief image over Europe in ETRS89-LAEA (EPSG code 3035)

The datasets are encoded as GeoTIFF with LZW compression (tiles) or DEFLATE compression (European mosaics as single files).
