Digital terrain model of Antarctica in ESRI Grid format, derived from ERS Radar Altimeter data.
Entry ID: ERS_DTM_GRID_ANT


Summary
Abstract: ESRI formatted raster grid of the Antarctic continental terrain, derived from ERS radar altimeter data.
The data is in a Polar Stereographic projection with true scale at 71 degrees South.
The grid has 'no data' cells in latitudes south of 82 degrees South and steep areas of the continent, particularly along the coast.

ESA's two European Remote Sensing (ERS) satellites, ERS-1 and 2, were ... View entire text
