Currently I am working with two data set ASTER and SRTM. I want to check their accuracy with reference to toposheet.

How would I do that in ArcGIS Desktop 10.4?

I want to check accuracy in terms of area and length of my study area.

  • i am yet to figure out how to compare these two data-set. I want to check weather there is any substantial difference in the derived DEM of the two satellite imagery which I am using Feb 17, 2017 at 7:49

    What format is your topo data? Raster topo map, topographic vectors (contours, spot elevations, survey controls etc)?
