World Elevation Data (30-meter mesh version) is now available at JAXA's site free of charge!
The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) will begin publishing free of charge an elevation data set that can express undulations of terrain over the world with a resolution of 30 meters horizontally (30-m mesh version). The data set has been compiled with images acquired by the Advanced Land Observing Satellite "DAICHI" (ALOS). As the first step, we will offer the areas in East Asia, including Japan, and South East Asia regions, and will expand the areas to all over the world (within 82 deg. of N/S latitudes).
