Elevation model - 5m & 20m grid - at work about 5km to the NE of the city of Jihlava, Czech Republic.


The Czech Republic elevation model is a digital terrain model (DTM) produced from airborne laser scanning (LIDAR) data obtained in years 2009-2014. The data in windPRO is sourced from Geoportal ČÚZK operated by the Czech Land Survey Office. The model in windPRO is derived from the INSPIRE compliant dataset - which again is derived from the Digital Terrain Model of the Czech Republic – 4th generation (DMR 4G). Coverage is the whole of the Czech Republic. In windPRO we deliver two DTM's, a fine-resolution model (5m grid) and a version resampled by EMD to obtain a slightly coarser resolution (20 m). This is in order for the data to be operational for the larger areas needed in the context of wind farm analysis’.

Dataset Overview

  • Spatial Coverage: Czech Republic
  • Resolution: 5 m and 20m
  • Data-type: Digital Terrain Model (DTM)
  • Coordinate system:
    • Horizontal: ETRS89/UTM 33N (EPSG:3045)
    • Vertical: EVREF2007 (EPSG:5621)
  • Version: Data downloaded in December 2023.
  • Vertical Accuracy: 0.3m in bare terrain and 1.0m in forested terrain (for DMR 4G dataset)

Usage Notes

  • Please allow 1-2 minutes for windPRO to process and download the high-resolution data (5m grid resolution). This is due to the size and resolution of the dataset.

Availability from within WindPRO

The data are available directly from within windPRO in 5-meter and 20-meter grid resolutions. The data can be accessed from the online-services in the following objects:

  • Line Object (with purpose to height contour lines)
  • Elevation Grid Object
