Hello friends,

i have two DTMs and two DSMs created from LAS files......

first LAS files were created in autumn

second LAS were created in spring

when i compare elevations between DTM autumn and DTM spring.......differences are minimal, but to and fro are big differences, like -50 metres

same at DSMs..

what could have caused it? may it be caused by noise by scanning or even something else?

thank you so much

Sorry, I am not with you here.

When you say "differences are minimal, but to and fro are big differences, like -50 metres",

is this a difference between the surveys or a difference between the DEM (ground surface) and DSM (includes structures)?

Well 50m is a lot. Are these from 2 different survey companies?

There is a possibility that one has supplied ellipsoidal heights and the other geoidal.

Better get back to the supplier to check.

Did they use some local control for their ht measurements?

no they are from one company

that deviations are somewhere in one pixel ....somewhere in two.....can it be caused by noise?
