I have 30 overlapping maps that contain tree density heights (measures between 1-100%) of a large area, and I need to get the highest point by pixel and create a new map with all these highest points if it makes sense.
Basically, say in point (pixel) "A" in map 1, 2...30 the maximum elevation is 25 m, and in the next pixel "B" (in all the other maps) is 20. I would need to create a new map (a new matrix) that condenses all these elevations/densities (and will look like 25, 20, x, y, etc).
Someone has suggested making a program to analyze all of the maps by pixel, but I'm new to this, so any help, or suggestion will be appreciated.
Ok, based on a comment I got, I'll add more detail here about the data: I have the data in three different formats (the same data) these being tif, .dtm. and ASCII. I have a section of a river, and the 30 maps overlap on top of each other exactly. They have measurements of three density (0, where there is no "vegetation" in the pixel, to 100, all is vegetated), now each of these overlapping maps contain this same density (0-100) for different heights, namely 1-30m. For example: in map 1, I would have calculated already from another program the points between the "bare ground" and 1m, so my map "1" contains everything ABOVE 1m, my map 2, will contain everything after 2m, etc until reaching 30m.
From these maps, I'll need to produce a map with the highest three height by pixel.
