Data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission have been used to
update the USGS GTOPO30 Digital Elevation Model of the Earth. The new
data have been averaged to 30 arc-sec resolution and replace the
older GTOPO30 pixels between the latitudes of 60 deg. North and 56
deg. South. The data and further documentation may be found at the
following ftp site:
