Users of digital elevation models must be aware of their main characteristics in order to judge better their suitability for a specific application. This paper describes concept of creating and applying of the 3D model based on the satellite images. The quality and loyalty of the elevation model of the terrain depends of the data which are collected, i.e. on the type and resolution of the satellite images, horizontal and vertical datum, but also on the way of interpretation and visualization of the 3D model. On the other hand, the organization and structure of data are influencing on the creation of the 3D model.
