Elevation defined by survey points (dots) that are also visible in detailed photomaps. Raw survey data, collected at slightly less than a 2 m grid spacing, was gridded to generate at 2 m node spacing. This grid file was then splined to add notes at a 0.25 m spacing thereby creating a smoothed surface reflecting the upper erosional surface of the photomap site. The splined grid files was blanked to exclude areas outside of the photomap area.
