Digital Elevation Models

Five different services

A digital elevation model (DEM) is a three-dimensional representation of a terrain's surface created from terrain elevation data.

Here you can find all the available years and the available formats for each service.

swissALTI3D (DTM)

swissALTI3D is an extremely precise digital elevation model which describes the surface of Switzerland without vegetation and development. It is updated in an cycle of 6 years. The derived dataset refers to DTM.

DHM25 Matrix Model

DHM25 Matrix Model is a digital elevation model represented as raster in the scale 1:25000. It shows the elevations of Switzerland (without vegetation and buildings) coded as color values in each raster pixel.
