Does map2map automatically change the datum of DEMs, when used with
For example, if I run
map2map from=DEM_with_areoid_datum.cub map=DEM_with_ellipsoid_datum.cub to=matched_DEM.cub matchmap=True
will match_DEM.cub have elevations relative to the ellipsoid?

Stepan, If you are asking if map2map modifies the DN values in the DEM to match the MAP, then the answer is no it does not. "map2map" does not know the DNs are elevations.
map2map process in a nutshell:
For each pixel in the output
what is the lat/lon at that output pixel
what is the input samp/line for that lat/lon
transfer the DN at the input samp/line to the current output pixel
The only change to the DN would be by the interpolation scheme used.
