ASTGTM Elevation Model (ASTER)
Data Extended Description: 
Global Digital Elevation Model (ASTGTM) was developed jointly by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI). ASTER is capable of collecting in-track stereo using nadir- and aft-looking near infrared cameras.
