Coverage for the DTM model for Wales – 5 m grid. Black dots represent existing wind turbines in Wales.

Introduction

The UK/Wales Elevation model in 5m grid resolution is a digital terrain model produced from higher resolution LiDAR scans originally obtained from the Natural Resources Wales. The original model at 2m resolution is named ‘LiDAR Composite Dataset – DTM – version 2m.’ The derived elevation model delivered with windPRO is at 5m resolution – and is bi-linearly resampled by EMD to obtain a slightly coarser resolution - 5m – this is done in order for the data to be operational for the much larger areas needed in the context of wind farm analysis’. Coverage for the data is approximately 70% of Wales.

Usage Notes

Higher resolution data exists for selected areas in the region based on more recent LiDAR surveys: These are in resolutions from 0.25m to 2m – and may be accessed directly from the geodata-portal of Wales (see link below). More information about the Wales Lidar products can be found in the [Guidance].


Availability from within windPRO

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

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

Reference System

The following reference systems were used in the original data:

  • Horizontal: OSGB36 British National Grid (EPSG: 27700)
  • Vertical: Elevations recorded above Ordnance Datum Newlyn
