Historic Terrain Model of the1953 Whitewater Creek Area, Coachella Valley, Riverside County, CA

12 historic aerial photos from the 1952 Whitewater Creek area were used to create a georeferenced orthoimage and digital elevation model to be compared with modern satellite imagery and elevation models. Comparing the newly generated 1953 dataset with modern imagery and elevation data allows detailed analysis of changes in the geomorphology, fluvial systems, vegetation, and infrastructure and the possible interaction between these surface parameters over time.
