DEM scripts

This page details and explains the use of the DEM creation scripts:

lidardem.sh
asterdem.sh
nextmapdem.sh
lidar_aster_dem.sh

The scripts listed are written in bash.

These scripts are used to create a DEM from LiDAR and elevation model tiles. The scripts use grass GIS to read in the elevation tiles and perform patching and various other operations on the data to create a DEM. GRASS is a GIS (Geograohic Information System) and details of it can be found at: http://grass.fbk.eu/. There is a detailed api and usage guide, it is available for free download at: http://grass.fbk.eu/download/index.php.
