The global data (between 70 degrees north and 70 degrees south) is based on measurements by SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission) and ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer), an imaging instrument onboard Terra, the flagship satellite of NASA’s Earth Observing System. ASTER is a cooperative effort between NASA, Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI), and Japan Space Systems (J-spacesystems).
