2019 Ridgecrest, CA Pre-Earthquake Digital Surface Model

Shared Geo Logo CU Boulder Logo U of Minnesota Logo USFW Logo University of Iowa logo

This digital surface model (DSM) data set is a mosaic of 2 m resolutions stereogrammetric DSMs acquired prior to the July 2019 Ridgecrest, California earthquake sequence. The DSMs were constructed using the open-source software package SETSM (https://mjremotesensing.wordpress.com/setsm/ (Noh and Howat, 2015)) produced using DigitalGlobe Inc. base imagery (©DigitalGlobe 2018).

73 DSM strips were vertically registered to ICESat-1 observations during the mosaicking process (see metadata file for RMS fits to ICESat-1). The base images are ~0.5 m resolution in-track stereo panchromatic imagery from the Worldview-01 and -02 and GeoEye-01 satellites that remain the property of DigitalGlobe Inc.
