DEM Cell Size

Discussion created by mbalwanz on May 3, 2013

I am trying to make a DEM using the "Topo to Raster" tool, however I have a question about what cell size I should use while creating the DEM.

I was provided 1 foot contours along with spot elevation points for my study area.  Since I have 1 foot contours, I assume I can at the very least use a cell size of 2x2, but do not have any experience to base this assumption off of.

Does anyone have a suggestion about a what would be the smallest size I could safely use considering the data I am working with.
