Getmapping are able to provide a number of different datasets when it comes to Height Data and this means you can purchase the optimal product for your requirements.

Most of the products are available as a Digital Terrain Model (DTM) and Digital Surface Model (DSM). Digital Surface Model includes all surface features such as trees, vegetation, buildings and structures. This is typically used for mast propagation and view shed work. Digital Terrain Model has all surface features removed and is just the topography of the ground. This is used for flood modelling and site analysis for engineering.
