Contours for Utah
Entry ID: AGRC_Hypsography

Abstract: This datasets contain a statewide coverage of contours.

- 500 foot contours derived from the 10 meter National Elevation Dataset?s (NED) Digital Elevation Model (DEM).

- 2 meter contours derived from 2 meter LiDAR for Salt Lake County. No smoothing has been applied to the contour data but a ?Smooth Line? in ArcMap with a ?50 meter Smoothing Tolerance? cleans the data up nicely. Although the data is refered to as 2 meter, the contour intervals are .5 meter. SLCo_2m_Index is a shapefile that can be used to determine what files to download. These contour shapefiles cover 4,000 X 4,000 meter blocks. This data has a UTM NAD83 meters projection.
