V-Soft Communications to release new Shuttle Radar Topography
V -Soft Communications will release the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM), its newest terrain database, at NAB2005.
The SRTM terrain database is a 3 arc-second database for the United States, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, and the lower two-thirds of Canada. V-Soft Communications has implemented this data for use with all of its programs.
This terrain is the most accurate elevation dataset to date for the locations outside of the United States. The database is a real-world interferometric scan. It includes buildings that may appear along with the topography.
The SRTM is a joint project between the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) and the National Aeronautical and Space Administration (NASA). The Space Shuttle Endeavour collected the data using interferometry in February 2000.
