Elevation Contours

Elevation contours (often visually depicted as contour lines on topographic maps) connect points of equal elevation within the boundary of the City of Kingston. Contours that are close together indicate steeper terrain, whereas contours that are wider apart indicate flatter terrain. Elevations are measured relative to sea-level.

Note: because of the size of the dataset you must zoom in to see completed contour lines in the portal.

More technically, this is the static indexed one meter contours derived from the three-dimensional “point cloud” representation of the City of Kingston that was captured in 2008-2009 through an aerial LiDAR survey as part of the LiDAR Eastern Acquisition Project (LEAP) project in collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry.

It is indexed at 2, 5, 10, 25, 50 m.
