After your experience working with LiDaR DEMs in Task 2 from Lab 6, and building TINs and DEMs in Task 1, this step will be pretty straight forward. Your boss wants you to simply use the Watershed Sciences 2005 LiDaR survey of Bridge Creek to provide some contextual topography for the Pats Cabin Creek and talk about how this might be used in the monitoring. The image below is a hillshade created in Open Topography from that dataset in the vicinity of the Pats Cabin reach on Bridge Creek.
Open Topography to build the surface for you, we will show you an alternative method of building a digital elevation model in ArcGIS, where you build a Terrain (instead of a TIN) and then convert it to a raster DEM.
