The USGS had moved all of its digital data to the Spatial Data Transfer

data is currently supplied by the USGS free of charge for the entire United
States. BasicDEM's help file contains detailed instructions on how to download
and unpack the data. For more details visit the SDTS www site and their
download data site. The USGS has moved the SDTS files to www.gisdatadepot.com
and 7.5 minute files are on a slow free or for fee fast server, sorted by state
counties. Use version 2.2 of BasicDEM to read SDTS files created after January
