ASTER GDEM Haiti 1.02

This map marks a change in focus from recreational maps to maps covering areas affected by humanitarian disasters. Hopefully it helps with any relief effort. Data sources: ASTER-GDEM, GSHHS2 and HydroSHEDS (all 'free'; details in acknowledgements)

Coverage: The whole of Cuba, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Jamaica.

Approx: W63-86 N15-24

Contours: 10m 100m 500m

Size: 142Mb

Compatibility: Works with Mapsource 6.16.3 and can be downloaded to Garmin GPSRs (and combined/superimposed with other maps of Haiti).

Includes GSHHS 2 and HydroSHEDS for all its worth - the resolution isn't that great but it does give some clues as to where rivers and coasts would be.
