Understanding Digital Terrain Model (DTM) and ArcGIS Pro:

A Digital Terrain Model (DTM) digitally represents ground surface topography or terrain. It is a pivotal tool in geospatial analysis, allowing professionals to create 3D terrain models for various applications, such as environmental studies, urban planning, civil engineering, and resource management. Understanding DTMs is fundamental for anyone working with geographical information systems, especially within the context of modeling and analyzing the physical characteristics of the landscape.

ArcGIS Pro is a modern, powerful single-desktop GIS application known for its intuitive and user-friendly interface. It's part of the Esris ArcGIS suite, offering advanced visualization, data management, and spatial analysis capabilities, including tools designed explicitly for DTM analysis. Participants in this course will become adept at using ArcGIS Pro and its analysis tools to create and manipulate DTMs and extract meaningful insights from terrain data, which is essential for informed spatial decision-making.
