This repository contains the data behind the work described in Pedersen et al (in review), specifically the Digital Elevation Models (DEMs), orthoimages and lava outlines created as part of the near-real time monitoring of the Fagradalsfjall 2021 eruption (SW-Iceland). The processing of the data is explained in detail in the Supplement S2 of Pedersen et al (2022). The data derived from Pléiades surveys includes only the DEMs and the lava outlines. The Pléiades-based orthoimages are subject to license. Please contact the authors for further information about this. Convention for file naming: Data: DEM, Ortho, Outline YYYYMMDD_HHMM: Date of acquisition Platform used: Helicopter (HEL), Pléiades (PLE), Hasselblad A6D (A6D) Origin of elevations in DEMs: meters above ellipsoid (zmae) Ground Sampling Distance: 2x2m (DEM) and 30x30cm (Ortho) Cartographic projection: isn93 (see cartographic specifications for further details) Cartographic specifications: Cartographic projection: ISN93/Lambert 1993 (EPSG: 3057, Horizontal and vertical reference frame: The surveys after 18 April 2021 are in ISN2016/ISH2004, updated locally around the study area in April 2021 (after pre-eruptive deformations occurred). The rest of the surveys of late March and early April were created using several floating reference systems (see Supplement S3 for details), since no ground surveys were available during the first weeks of the data collection. The surveys of 23 March 2021, 31 March 2021 were re-procesed in Gouhier et al., 2022, using the survey done on 18 May 2021 as reference. Origin of elevations: Ellipsoid WGS84 Raster data format: GeoTIFF Raster compression system: ZSTD ( Vector data format: GeoPackage (
