Estonian 5m DTM and SRTM 1-arc-second at Virtsu DSM, Estonia.


The Estonian elevation models in 5m and 25m grid resolutions are digital terrain models produced by the Republic of Estonia Land Board. Spatial coverage is for the whole of Estonia. The models are created from LIDAR surveys – where 1/4 of Estonian territory is laser-scanned every year. The data available in windPRO were procured during May 2019.
