description: The color-sliced elevation service is a 100-meter resolution image. Each color tint represents a range of elevation values. There are 32 elevation classes and colors required to map all 50 of the United States, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, plus an additional class and color to represent non-U.S. land. The service contains elevation classes 1 to 32, as well as class 33 (non-U.S. land). Color-sliced elevation data were derived from the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP), formerly the National Elevation Dataset, and show the terrain at a resolution of 100 meters. The 3DEP is a raster product assembled by the U.S. Geological Survey, designed to provide national elevation data in a seamless form with a consistent datum, elevation unit, and projection. Data corrections made in the 3DEP assembly process minimize artifacts, permit edge matching, and fill sliver areas of missing data. More information on 3DEP can be found at
