A few other projects have post-processed the official Version 2. The tiles are distributed as zip files containing HGT files labeled with the coordinate of the southwest cell. The original SRTM data has been subjected to a number of processing steps to provide seamless and complete elevational surfaces for the globe. The DEM files have been mosaiced into a seamless near-global coverage up to 60 degrees north and south , and are available for download as 5-degree x 5-degree tiles, in a geographic coordinate system — WGS84 datum. A 1 arc second data product was also produced but is not available for all countries. Note that the elevation-adding feature will erase any existing altitude data for example, from a GPS that might already be in your file. They find an average vertical error of just 5m in interpolated regions when compared with a DEM derived from cartographic maps, though the maximum error stretches to m in a region with approximately m elevation.

Martin Gamache has since produced some detailed analysis of the data offered here by the CSI, concluding that the hole-filling algorithm is quite successful in representing broad-scale patterns in topography in data holes.

Calculation of hydrologically sound digital elevation models. Digital elevation models DEM for the entire globe, covering all of the countries of the world, are available for download on this site.

Ffile original SRTM data has been subjected to a number of processing steps to provide seamless and complete elevational surfaces for the globe. The two known projects that covers the whole world are:. Download Official download interface multiple 5-degree tiles: As with SRTM1 data, additional files can be added upon request. Comparisons with digital elevation models generated from cartographic data.

GPS Visualizer’s mapprofileand conversion programs now have the ability to instantly add elevation data — from a DEM digital elevation model database — to any type of GPS file. The Google Maps API is able to return elevations for points anywhere in the world; these are usually but not always the same elevations you’d see in Google Earth. The method used is based on the size of the hole, and the landform that surrounds it. Many OpenStreetMap-based projects use SRTM data to provide topography information, relief shading, and elevation profiles for trails and routes.
CIAT also request reprints of any publications and notification of any redistributing efforts. Practical use of SRTM data in the tropics: The DEM files have been mosaiced into a seamless near-global coverage up to 60 degrees north and southand are available for download as 5-degree x 5-degree tiles, in a geographic coordinate system — WGS84 datum. This data is provided in an effort to promote the use of geospatial science and applications for sustainable development and resource conservation in the developing world.
If GPS Visualizer runs into one of these, it will not overwrite those elevations in your input data. When hydrological models are applied to the interpolated DEM and the cartographic DEM, little difference is found in hydrological response in terms of overland flow and discharge.
Processing was made on a void by void basis. Sorry, your blog jml share posts by email. For areas with a high-resolution auxiliary DEM: Additional locations will be installed upon request.
To use this tool, your data must be in simple tabular format easily accomplished using GPSV’s plain-text converter ; you must remove any existing elevation data; and you must have your own Google Maps API Setm. This process interpolates through the no-data holes, producing a smooth elevational surface where no data was originally found.

Further instructions are on the Elevation Lookup Utility page. More information about this dataset is available in USGS c.
This method produces a smooth elevational surface of no-data regions. The outermost rows and columns of each tile overlap with the corresponding rows and columns of adjacent tiles. The best interpolations methods can be generalised as Kriging or Inverse Distance Weighting interpolation for small and medium-size voids in relatively flat low-lying areas; Spline interpolation for small and medium-sized voids in high altitude and dissected terrain; Triangular Irregular Network or Inverse Distance Weighting interpolation for large voids in very flat areas, and an advanced Spline Method ANUDEM for large voids in other terrains.
This entire process is performed for tiles with the large overlap with neighboring tiles, thus ensuring seamless and smooth transitions in topography in large void areas.
