I am looking into a way to calculate the elevation of the ground floor of many buildings in a study area. My plan is to run the building centroids against an elevation grid to get an elevation measurement for each point. I know that by using an elevation source such as NED, the elevation that will be assigned to each point will be somewhat less than that of the actual ground floor of the building. My plan was to apply some sort of factor to the extracted elevations to hopefully increase the accuracy of my data. How would I go about determining such a factor?

  • Note that it is absolutely possible that this factor can change depending on the centroid's location with in the study area which is the State of Florida. – Kingfisher Feb 5 '16 at 21:44

  • How are you with scripting/model building? And what software solutions are you looking for? – Barbarossa Feb 12 '16 at 19:29
