French National Elevation Model - 75m grid. Image showing part of Bretagne.

Introduction

A number of French digital terrain models DTM’s (MNT - Modèle Numérique de Terrain) are available with windPRO – one covering the whole of France in 75m grid resolution – and others from selected administrative regions in higher resolutions, typically 5m grid or 10m grid. The French DTM datasets are currently freely available for windPRO users with an active subscription. Currently the following French elevation models are available:

1. National DTM/MNT Model – 75m:
This model is a medium scale (75m grid resolution) version of the national elevation model of France (BD Alti). The model is released from the Institut National de l’Information Geographique et Forestiére (IGN). It is based on digitization of maps and stereo-imagery with data from years 1987-2001. Higher resolution models can be purchased from the IGN. Read more on BD Alti (in French) [PDF-LINK].

2. Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes DTM/MNT Model – 5m:
Elevation from five departments are available: Puy-de-Dôme, Cantal, Loire, Haute-Loire and Allier. Grid resolution is 5m with data from 2016.

3. Bretagne DTM/MNT Model – 5m:
Elevation model in 5m resolution – with data obtained in the following years: Morbihan (2016), lle et Vilaine (2017), Côtes d'Armor (2015), Finistère (2015).

4. Nord-Pas de Calais DTM/MNT Model – 10m:
Model was derived from stereo-photos during years 2012-2013.

Version

Data in windPRO were accessed, downloaded and prepared/converted for windPRO distribution during spring 2019.

Coordinate Reference Systems

Horizontal: RGF93 / Lambert-93 (EPSG:2154)

Availability from within windPRO

The data are available directly from within windPRO and may be accessed from the online-services from the following objects:

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

Attributions

These products belong to the open data of France. Please use the following attributions when using one of the datasets:

French National DTM/MNT Model – 75m: Contains elevation data from the Institut National de l’Information Geographique et Forestiére (IGN) – 05/2019. Distribution through EMD and windPRO.

France - Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes DTM/MNT Model – 5m: Contains elevation data from the Centre Régional Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes de l'Information Géographique (CRAIG) – 05/2019. Distribution through EMD and windPRO.

France - Bretagne DTM/MNT Model – 5m: Contains elevation data from GéoBretagne – 05/2019. Distribution through EMD and windPRO.

France – Nord-Pas de Calais – 10m: Contains elevation data from the Plateforme Publique de l'Information Géographique de la Région Nord - Pas de Calais (PPIGE) – 05/2019. Distribution through EMD and windPRO.

Acknowledgements

  • The French public, state (with IGN as its representative) and regions of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Bretagne and Nord-Pas de Calais are thanked for producing these digital elevation datasets and disseminating them with an open-data licence - and thus aiding the development of renewable energy – and wind energy in particular.
  • Integration of this dataset into EMD services - was co-supported through the InnoWind project (www.innowind.dk) - which is co-funded by the Danish Innovation Fund.
