Aerial Services’ enchanced 2′ contours for the State of Iowa are now available. These contours are available for any area in the State as seamless 2′ contours. Unlike those freely available, these have been edited to remove unwanted artifacts introduced from LiDAR data.
Generated from the high resolution Iowa LiDAR data, these 2-foot contours are available for any area in State Plane projection. The Contours are available in DXF or Shapefile format.
Lightweight bare earth DEMs are also available for use by engineers and GIS users. These have been thinned down to a 10 foot spacing so the filesize of each DEM tile is less than 50 MB.
The 2′ contours are beautiful and seamless from the Mississippi to Missouri Rivers. Unlike others available, Topo Iowa contours do not break at County borders.
The 2′ contours have been edited to improve their cartographic appeal. The raw Iowa LiDAR has areas of noise and low quality data that produces undesirable contours. Editing has been done by Aerial Services’ experts to remove these undesirable features and improve the overall look of the contours.
All of the index 2′ contours in DXF format are labelled with their elevation from border to border. Index and intermediate contours are identified.
