"Denmark's Depth Model, 50 m resolution" is now available for windPRO users working with offshore wind farm development within the Danish EEZ. The model has a grid resolution of 50 meters and is based on a collection of hydrographic survey datasets and historical sources. Model coverage is Denmark's Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). The model is developed and released by the Danish Geodata Agency and current data in windPRO reflects the data-status as of year 2022.

Availability from within WindPRO and Usage Notes

The data is available directly from within windPRO and can be accessed from the online-services in the Elevation Grid Object.

  • In order to access the data, please set the purpose of the Elevation Grid Object to 'Water depths'.
  • If you want to export the grid to contour lines: This can be done from within the grid-object, simply select the layer of interest, then choose 'Export Layer'.

Reference System

The following reference systems were used in the original data:

  • Horizontal: Lambert Conformal Conic (LCC) / ETRS89 (EPSG:3034)
  • Vertical: A combination of Mean Low Water Spring (MLWS), Lowest Astronomical Tide (LAT) and Dansk Vertikal Reference 1990 (DVR90)
