Sonoma County California Topography and Vegetation Data now Available

Oct 22, 2014

OpenTopography is pleased to announce the release of lidar point cloud and raster data covering Sonoma County, CA. These data are a result of a five year effort to map Sonoma County's topography and physical and biotic features, and diverse plant communities and habitats (at a 1:5,000 or higher mapping). Several organizations including the University of Maryland, NASA, and the Sonoma Veg Map program funded the collection and hosting of data on OpenTopography.

SRTM Version 3.0 Global (90m) and United States (30m) Elevation Data Now Available

Apr 8, 2014

The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) obtained 90 meter (3 arc-second) resolution data on a near-global scale (between 56 degrees South and 60 degrees North latitude) and 30 meter (1 arc-second) resolution over United States, providing a valuable global topographic dataset. The SRTM data were collected during an 11-day mission in February of 2000 from a radar system onboard the Space Shuttle Endeavor. The SRTM project was led by the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and NASA.
