Abstract:
Elevation data is the representation of the height of the ground at a location on earth. This index was developed to identify the locations where elevation data exists in order to support clients looking for the products available for their areas of interest and the associated metadata. The Ontario Elevation Data Index allows users to discover the extents and the metadata associated for elevation products within the province of Ontario. The index benefits LIO staff when advising clients on the extents of elevation data sets as well as directing users to detailed metadata records to assist with IM requirements. It allows elevation data users to make informed decisions when planning for elevation data acquisitions thus avoiding duplication of effort, i.e. reacquiring previously captured data.
