MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) Digital Elevation Model from GeoEye and WorldView Imagery, Version 1
Data set id:
This data set consists of an enhanced resolution digital elevation model (DEM) for the Greenland Ice Sheet. The DEM is derived from sub-meter resolution, panchromatic stereoscopic imagery collected by the GeoEye-1, WorldView 1, WorldView 2, and WorldView 3 satellites operated by DigitalGlobe Inc. The imagery is distributed by the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA) and archived at the Polar Geospatial Center at the University of Minnesota through the NextView License program. Although the source images are subject to user restrictions, derived products including DEMs may be openly distributed for non-commercial purposes. See Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) for related data
