TINs and DEMs
Lab description - In this lab we examined TIN and DEM elevation models. We compared these two data models for elevation, as well as examined some of their properties. We also practice creating and modifying a TIN.
Student Learning Outcomes:
- Create 3D visualizations of elevation models.
- Create and modify a TIN using various input datasets
- Compare TIN and DEM elevation models in terms of their properties and derivatives
STUDENT SPOTLIGHT AWARD
The following student was chosen for their exceptional work on the TINs and DEMs Lab assignment:
What we like: Laura provided a solid comparison of elevation models in TIN and DEM formats and created strong visualizations to support her comparisons. Pairing the visualization with a great a symbology those sought after ski runs are now easier to see than ever! Great job Laura, keep up the excellent work!
