Abstract
Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) are developing and evolving at a fast pace, given the progress of computer science and technology. This development though, is not accompanied by an advancement of knowledge on the quality of the models and their indigenous inaccuracy. The user on most occasions is not aware of this quality thus in not aware of the correlating product uncertainty. Extensive research has been conducted – and still is – towards this direction. In the research presented in this paper there is an analysis of elevation errors behavior which are recorded in a DEM. The behavior of these elevation errors, is caused by altering the DEM resolution upon the application of the algorithm interpolation. Contour lines are used as entry data from a topographical map. Elevation errors are calculated in the positions of the initial entry data and wherever the elevation is known. The elevation errors that are recorded, are analyzed, in order to reach conclusions about their distribution and the way in which they occur.
