Please.. EU-DEM is a DSM or a DTM? The elevations are refered in the cities to the top of buildings or to the ground?, ¿To top of trees or the ground?... The sensor takes the elevations of Surface (top of tres and buildings) and is neccesary to classify data to obtain DTM. I do not know if data from sensors were classified to obtain the ground.

Dear M. 'Edugoncris',

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).
The EU-DEM is a DSM (digital surface model).
