Paper Abstract

A global digital surface model dataset named ALOS Global Digital Surface Model (AW3D30) with a horizontal resolution of approx. 30-meter mesh (1 arcsec) has been released by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The dataset has been compiled with images acquired by the Advanced Land Observing Satellite "DAICHI" (ALOS) and it is published based on the DSM dataset (5-meter mesh version) of the "World 3D Topographic Data", which is the most precise global-scale elevation data at this time, and its elevation precision is also at a world-leading level as a 30-meter mesh version. In this study the accuracy of ALOS AW3D30 was examined. For an area with complex geomorphologic characteristics DSM from ALOS stereo pairs were created with classical photogrammetric techniques. Those DSMs were compared with the ALOS AW3D30. Points of certified elevation collected with DGPS have been used to estimate the accuracy of the DSM. The elevation difference between the two DSMs was calculated. 2D RMSE, correlation and the percentile value were also computed and the results are presented.
