LiDAR vertical resolution and ground cover

Can you confirm whether the EA LiDAR generated Digital Terrain Model strips out the presence of crops and therefore elevations represents the topsoil elevation?

Hi Neal

Thank you for your question - Yes this is what the Digital Terrain Model (DTM) should do. The accuracy of this depends on how dense the vegetation cover is.

I hope this helps.
