    33A common product for users to create from LiDAR data is a Digital Surface Model (DSM), which represents the elevation at the top of buildings / forest canopy and a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) which is the 'bare Earth' elevation (i.e., it doesn't include the height of buildings or vegetation).

    5 We supply a LiDAR DSM, including a version patched with a courser resolution elevation model (normally ASTER) for use in APL for processing hyperspectral data. However, we don't provide a DTM with standard deliveries.

    77There are a number of programs which can generate a DTM by classifying ground returns then interpolating to fill in gaps. If you are unsure where to start our DEM scripts have an interface for generating a DTM or DSM, which is able to use a number of software packages (some free some paid for). For more details see the following [https://github.com/pmlrsg/arsf_dem_scripts/blob/master/doc/source/tutorial_lidar.md#create-dsm--dtm-using-additional-programs tutorial] given as part of our NERC-ARF workshop (contact us for details on the next course).
