Abstract:

Lidar high-resolution elevation digital elevation model data and low-resolution shaded relief maps of Antarctica are available for download from the U.S. Antarctic Resource Center. These are interim data and will be replaced by the final data files when they are complete. The data cover portions of the McMurdo Dry Valleys, Royal Society and Convoy Ranges, White Island, Ross Island of Antarctica.

Purpose:

Scientific Research
