Summary
Abstract: BasicDEM for Windows is a basic Window program for viewing and processing
Digital Elevation Models. Press Here for an screen capture of the program that
will help you understand its operation. BasicDEM can be downloaded for
evaluation. User may use the software as "freeware" for their own personal use
and distribute as a stand alone application only.

The USGS had moved all of its digital data to the Spatial Data Transfer
Standard (SDTS), including elevation and line (roads, rivers, etc) data. The
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
2001.
