|In addition to the substantial science required to produce the SharedGeo DSMs, the effort is significant in at least three other ways.
- It is the first public domain release of DSM products covering an expansive area (eight states and two Canadian provinces) outside the polar regions,
- It demonstrates the potential for units of government to have access to frequently acquired DSM data without the high cost of similar LiDAR products, and
- Because this approach relies on satellite imagery that is being frequently collected, short period, time-sequenced visualization of climate change impact, and the results of mitigation are possible.
