b) DEM Service GET Request to Download TIFF



The Ag-Analytics® DEM Service API allows for clipping boundaries to the 10 meter USGS DEM map of the United States. The service consists of a GET request where the user can pass the filename from POST request. The result of the GET request is the GeoTIFF file of the DEM clip to the specified local path.
