Information and discussion related to high-resolution lidar topography for the Earth sciences

High resolution terrain session at MODSIM09

Another email announcement about an upcoming meeting with a session devoted to high resolution topography data. This session looks quite interesting as the MODSIM09 conference has the stated goal of "Interfacing Modeling and Simulation with Mathematical and Computational Sciences". The abstract deadline is December 31st. Email initially distributed via the ASU LiDAR listserv.

Dear lidar listserv members

New SRTM DEM Version Available

Ramon Arrowsmith points out that CGIAR-CSI has released a new version (v.4) of their 90m SRTM Digital Elevation Data.

The SRTM data now available from this site has been upgraded to version 4. This latest version represents a significant improvement from previous versions, using new interpolation algorithms and better auxiliary dems. We are confident this is now the highest quality SRTM dataset available.
