How to create DEM from points, contours, and drainage network using a kriging interpolation?

The scanned topographic map, with 300 dpi resolution,was georeferenced and manually vectorized using ESRI software package (ArcGIS) and specific extensions. GIS layers containing contour lines, elevation points, and the hydrographic stream network were stored in ESRI shapefile format.

From altimetry data, the digital elevation model (DEM) in GRID format was produced by an advanced geostatistical interpolation techniques such as kriging (Burrough and McDonnell 1998) with a resolution of 10 m.

  • Thank you for your answer I have like inputs contours, points of elevation and drainage network files. My prupose is creating a DEM. How? I used Topo to Raster but the result was with a low and flou resoulution. I read that by Kriging interpolation, I can produce a Dem by my inputs. How? – Islem Neffati Feb 1 '17 at 12:01
