NASA Shuttle Radar Topo Mission Combined Image Data Set Compatibility

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if the "NASA Shuttle Radar Topography Mission Combined Image Data Set V003" was usable in FSX?  I've had good look with the SRTM 1 arc and 3 arc, but I haven't figured out get a usable TIF (that resample.exe can convert) from the SRTM Combined Image files.

I don't believe the raw data is usable - there are (according to Justin Tyme, who tried to use it with his mesh) dropouts and artifacts all through it.  Bear in mind as well that this is radar data and, as such, does not represent an analog image. It is a layered digitization of return strengths. As such, I'm not sure it's possible to get a usable TIF from it. Of course, I could be wrong.

Thanks, DJ.  I believe you are correct!  The description of the data "seemed' promising, but in the end, it's just too messy to process.

 

Best,
