Digital Elevation Model - 3-D View

Module by: John Janovec. E-mail the author

Summary: A 3d digital elevation model of the los amigos conservation area.

Figure 1: This scene provides a view of the terrace where the station sits (red diamond). DEM-generation from Aster images is not perfect, and due to error caused by reflectance patterns, some portions of the river appear to be waterfalls. There are no waterfalls along this portion of the Madre de Dios. Note the high banks between Madre de Dios (1) and the Los Amigos River (2). The Aguaje palm swamp (yellow star) sits between the high terrace and the floodplain. Just below the Aguaje palm swamp in this scene you can see light blue areas, which are past and present sites of gold-mining activities.
