Data currency comments

This data was originally created in 2002 and has been marginally updated on a few occasions since then.

Data set description

This file of elevation points contain the location (X and Y) as well as elevation (Z). These points were created for the acquisition of the City's 2002 orthophotos and have been marginally modified since then (in 2004, 2006 and 2008). Modifications occurred in some, but probably not all, areas where there were significant changes in the terrain due to development. However, these points should not be taken to be authoritative or anything more than approximate because of the process by which they have been created. This is not a digital elevation model (DEM) per se.

Data accuracy comments

These points should be considered to be approximate.


None. Each point has X and Y coordinates and Z elevation.
