for a school group project we were given a pre processed DEM built from lidar point cloud.
We have had tons of issues with the DEM (.tiff) due to the size of the file but have been able to run the tools by cutting out the required data and re-sampling call size to 5m.
After running fill sinks and flow direction the data shows a uniform grid that was undetectable in the DEM and Slope calculations.
I am curious if anyone has dealt with this before, or have any idea if this could come from some rendering issues with the large data, or if there is some kind of error in the data.
(The project is research based. I'm not just looking for easy answers for a lab assignment)
