The digital surface model (DSM) 1m is a homogeneous and regular grid of points indicating the height of the earth's surface in order to model the landscape. The product "DSM1meter", abbreviated DSM 1m, gives every 1m in X and Y the height of the earth's surface, i.e. the ground or any other permanent and visible element of the landscape (vegetation, construction, ...) in relation to the Belgian zero level (fictitious zero D of Uccle). It is therefore the orthometric height, commonly called: altitude.
The hillshades are presented as a regular homogeneous grid of points indicating the grey level value resulting from their orientation with respect to the chosen fictitious light source. The 1m hillshade is the view obtained by hillshading of the 1m DTM. The 5m and 20m hillshades are the views obtained by hillshading of the 5m and 20m DTM.
This webservice allows viewing a digital surface model. It is a homogeneous and regular points grid which indicates the height above the surface of the earth, either the soil or any other permanent and visible element in the landscape (vegetation, construction,…). These data represent the situation of the landscape resulting from the July 2021 floods in het areas of the Vesdre, of part of the Meuse downstream from Liège and of the Demer. The heights are given relative to the Belgian zero level (fictitious zero of Uccle). The data have a resolution (size of the meshes of the regular grid) of 20 cm.

This web service allows viewing datasets from INSPIRE Contour Lines, and DTM.
This web service allows the visualization of altimetry data. More specifically, it allows to visualize the National Geographic Institute's digital terrain model and the contours associated with it. This service is compliant with the INSPIRE specifications.
The contour lines are the set of lines connecting all points at the same elevation in a model used to represent the relief on a large scale.
Top10Vector – Local topography is the data set of the Belgian orography. This data set includes eight classes. First class: earth banks. Second class: additional geometry of the slope surface. Third class: dune zone. Fourth class: historic mounds. Fifht class: cave entrances. Sixth class: cone-shaped slag heap. Seventh class: steep. Eightth class: embanlments. This data set can be bought via the corresponding hyperlink.
The eTOD digital terrain model (DTM) is a homogeneous and regular point grid indicating the elevation of the ground level in order to make a model of its surface. This DTM is obtained by resampling raw altimetric source data from the Flemish and Walloon Regions, grouped in Lambert 72 and with a resolution of 1 m; as well as data obtained internally by direct photogrammetric recording of structure points and lines based on the most recent aerial photographs for all areas not covered by regional data. For this DTM, the resolution and coordinate reference system are used as defined by the eTOD specifications.
