1km DEM dataset in the Heihe River Basin (2011)
1km DEM dataset in the Heihe River Basin (2011)

The DEM elevation model data set of 1km in heihe river basin generates DEM grid data based on China 1:250,000 digital contour line and elevation point data interpolation released by national basic geographic information center (http://ngcc.sbsm.gov.cn). The data includes Albers projection and longitude and latitude coordinates.A large amount of surface morphology information can be extracted from DEM, including the slope, slope direction and the relationship among cells of the watershed grid, which is an important source data for watershed research.
