For example, if the true maximum elevation difference between a target cell and its neighboring cells was 99 cm (non--denning habitat) but the IfSAR DTM indicated a difference of 100 cm because of a +1 cm error in one of the neighboring cells, our GIS routine would have identified the target cell as denning habitat.
