Cyfrowe modele terenu (DTM) są bardzo ważną warstwą GIS i są szeroko stosowane w zastosowaniach naukowych i praktycznych, od geoinformacji w inżynierii lądowej.

Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) are a very important GIS layer and are used extensively in scientific and practical applications, ranging from geoinformation to civil engineering. Multiple spatial analyses are being held with the usage of DTM - starting from imple queries, through map analysis derived from DTM: slope and aspect maps and finally finding application in complex modelling of environmental phenomenon. Recently more and more attention is paid to the GIS analysis credibility, which makes the quality issues and data sets accuracy more important then ever. Owing to fact that quality is an extensive concept, one criterion assessment cannot be applied to every possible situation. Domain of the problem as well as the goals of specific application need to be recognized and the acquired knowledge must be confronted with the information regarding possessed data. It is in connection with the reliability and fitness to use issue which states that every certain DTM is appropriate only for some set of applications, and the user must be aware of that. It is important for the user to have the sense of purpose. Whether a DTM is of sufficient quality for particular application depends on the data itself and on the purpose of its usage.(fragment of text)
