Raw Data

The raw data for these maps is from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (version 2) as collected from the Space Shuttle Endeavour over 11 days in February 2000. It has a resolution of 3 arc-sec (~90 m).


The topographic maps have been compiled with contours at the following intervals:

* Minor 10m
* Intermediate 100m
* Major 500m
* Shoreline contour at 3m


These 'transparent' maps contain contour lines only. It can be combined with street maps from or

I use these maps on my Garmin eTrex Venture Cx GPSr.
