The data publication contains 1 meter raster data sets for three different digital elevation models (DEM) for the Priest River Experimental Forest in north Idaho in 2002. The first is a digital terrain model (DTM), which is the ground surface with all vegetation and human-made structures removed. The second is a digital surface model (DSM), which includes all vegetation and human-made structures. The last is a canopy height model (CHM), which is the difference between the DSM and the DTM surfaces.
