Many common digital elevation models (DEMs) use geographic coordinates, including NED, DTED, SRTM, GDEM, and NEXTMAP, with horizontal spacings in the range of 1/9" to 3". Many GIS operations, such as slope/aspect, reflectance or hillshade mapping, and viewsheds, require geometric knowledge of the relationship between horizontal and vertical spacing. Published discussions implicitly assume a rectangular UTM or UTM-like grid because they refer to a single value for data spacing, and some commercial software either requires reinterpolation to UTM before algorithms will work or allows only a single factor to relate degrees to meters, ignoring the significant changes that occur with latitude.
