Processing Information: Program Name: SRTM2DSM.AML Purpose: Create a polygonal footprint for each 1x1 degree tile of SRTM data processed. The attributes of each tile, such as, resolution and date processed, are linked to this polygonal footprint. Procedure: Generate footprint Build topology Add and populate attributes Define projection as geographic with WGS84 datum Convert to shapefile Environment: Microsoft Windows 2000 Version 5.0 (Build 2195) Service Pack 2; ESRI ArcInfo Workstation 8.2
The objective of the SRTM mission is to obtain elevation radar data on a near-global scale and generate the most complete high-resolution digital topographic database of the Earth. The information collected by SRTM will be used to provide a tool to enhance the activities of scientists, the military, commercial, and civilian users. Original data are downloadable at http://seamless.usgs.gov.
