NASA, Japan Release Most Complete Topographic Map of Earth
06.29.09


PASADENA, Calif. - NASA and Japan released a new digital
topographic map of Earth Monday that covers more of our
planet than ever before. The map was produced with detailed
measurements from NASA's Terra spacecraft.

The new global digital elevation model of Earth was created
from nearly 1.3 million individual stereo-pair images collected
by the Japanese Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and
Reflection Radiometer, or Aster, instrument aboard Terra. NASA
and Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, known
as METI, developed the data set. It is available online to users
everywhere at no cost.

"This is the most complete, consistent global digital elevation
data yet made available to the world," said Woody Turner, Aster
program scientist at NASA Headquarters in Washington. "This
unique global set of data will serve users and researchers from
a wide array of disciplines that need elevation and terrain
information."
