Kingston Multi-hazard Assessment:
Digital Elevation Model

This digital elevation model (DEM) was developed from 1:12,500 scale maps of the Kingston Metropolitan Area. Contour intervals for the elevation values are 25 ft in low lying areas and 100 ft in hilly areas. This DEM was developed as part of the seismic hazard assessment. Two images of this DEM--planimetric and orthographic--are shown below.
