Oregon Base Data (DEMs, DOQs, DRGs)

The University of Oregon Libraries is no longer making Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), Digital Orthophoto Quadrangles (DOQs), or Digital Raster Graphics (DRGs) available through our website. There are several reliable, freely available online sources for current data. 

We recommend you use The National Map Download.  It allows you to search and download current and non-current US topographic maps in a GeoPDF format (an updated version of the DRG). It also allows you to download the most recent elevation products and source data, and recent orthorectified aerial photography.

The Oregon Geospatial Enterprise Office’s Geospatial Data Clearinghouse is another recommended source for these data.
