This DEM’s elevation is also in meters.

Use Raster calculator to convert the elevation to feet.

Subject: [okgis] Oklahoma Contours?


I am trying to generate contours with 2 feet intervals for an area in Woods County.

I am using the Spatial Analyst Toolbar with a 1 meter DEM I downloaded from USGS as my input raster.

I clipped the raster data and converted from meters to feet.


I run this process;



The process creates my contours, however when I comapre it to a 10 meter statewide shapefile I downloaded from OKMaps, it does not look correct. The blue contours are from OKMap’s download. The contours I generated are shown in red;



Should I be using a different dataset for my Input raster?

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

By chance would anyone have contours for Woods County with 2 ft intervals?


Thank you
