I have two digital elevation models. One’s datum is in WGS84, and the other datum is WGS84 UTM 15N. I am using both for geologic mapping.
What’s the difference between the two datum?
Is it okay for me to use both DEMs in conjunction even though they are using different datum’s (will it introduce an errors in my measurements?)?

Both dataset have the same datum but the difference is only WGS84 have longitude and latitude as measurement units whereas WGS84 UTM 15N is projected coordinate system and measurement units for Projected coordinate system are in meters/km/mile etc.
