Digital Elevation Model (ESA - 30 meters)
The Copernicus DEM is a Digital Surface Model (DSM) that represents the surface of the Earth including buildings, infrastructure and vegetation. It is offered in three resolutions and two extents (Global; EEA39). The Copernicus DEM available here is a subset of the COP-DEM_GLO-30-DGED dataset, with 30 m resolution and global extent. This dataset was made available for use in 2019 and will be maintained until 2026; the version available in this platform was released in 2022.
