The IceBridge DMS L3 Photogrammetric DEM (IODMS3) data set contains gridded digital elevation models and orthorectified images of Greenland derived from the Digital Mapping System (DMS). The data were collected as part of Operation IceBridge funded campaigns and are stored in GeoTIFF files. Also included are image index shapefiles. The data are available via FTP for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 23 March 2011 to the present.

The directory structure for this data set is described in the 00README.txt file.

Operation IceBridge products may include test flight data that are not useful for research and scientific analysis. Test flights usually occur at the beginning of campaigns. Users should read flight reports for the flights that collected any of the data they intend to use. Check IceBridge campaign Flight Reports for dates and information about test flights.

See the NASA Digital Mapping System page for more on the Digital Mapping System Camera (DMS).

Data are available via FTP.
