        abstract:  GLOBE is a project to develop the best available 30-arc-second (nominally 1 kilometer) global digital elevation data set. This version of GLOBE contains data from 11 sources, and 17 combinations of source and lineage. It continues much in the tradition of the National Geophysical Data Center's TerrainBase (FGDC 1090), as TerrainBase served as a generally lower-resolution prototype of GLOBE data management and compilation techniques. The GLOBE mosaic has been compiled onto CD-ROMs for the international user community. It is also available from the World Wide Web (linked from the online linkage noted above and anonymous ftp. Improvements to the global model are anticipated, as appropriate data and/or methods are made available. In addition, individual contributions to GLOBE (several areas have more than one candidate) should become available at the same website. GLOBE may be used for technology development, such as helping plan infrastructure for cellular communications networks, other public works, satellite data processing, and environmental monitoring and analysis. GLOBE prototypes (and probably GLOBE itself after its release) have been used to help develop terrain avoidance systems for aircraft. In all cases, GLOBE data should be treated as any potentially useful but guaranteed imperfect data set. Mission- or life-critical applications should consider the documented artifacts, as well as likely undocumented imperfections, in the data.

        abstract:  This is an ArcGIS image service showing color shaded relief visualizations of high-resolution digital elevation models (DEMs) of U.S. coastal regions. NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) builds and distributes high-resolution coastal digital elevation models (DEMs) that integrate ocean bathymetry and land topography to support NOAA's mission to understand and predict changes in Earth's environment, and conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet our Nation's economic, social, and environmental needs. They can be used for modeling of coastal processes (tsunami inundation, storm surge, sea-level rise, contaminant dispersal, etc.), ecosystems management and habitat research, coastal and marine spatial planning, and hazard mitigation and community preparedness. DEMs included in this visualization: High-resolution DEMs of select U.S. coastal communities and surrounding areas. Most are at a resolution of 1/3 to 1 arc-second (approx 10-30 m); U.S. Coastal Relief Model: A 3 arc-second (approx 90 m) comprehensive view of the conterminous U.S. coastal zone, Puerto Rico, and Hawaii; Southern Alaska Coastal Relief Model: A 24 arc-second (approx. 500 m) model of Southern Alaska, spanning the Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, and Gulf of Alaska. This map service can be used as a basemap. It has a transparent background, so it can also be shown as a layer on top of a different basemap. Please see NGDC's corresponding DEM Footprints map service for polygon footprints and more information about the individual DEMs used to create this composite view.

        abstract:  A map service showing the location and coverage of land and seafloor digital elevation models (DEMs) available from NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center. NOAA's National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) builds and distributes high-resolution, coastal digital elevation models (DEMs) that integrate ocean bathymetry and land topography to support NOAA's mission to understand and predict changes in Earth's environment, and conserve and manage coastal and marine resources to meet our Nation's economic, social, and environmental needs. They can be used for modeling of coastal processes (tsunami inundation, storm surge, sea-level rise, contaminant dispersal, etc.), ecosystems management and habitat research, coastal and marine spatial planning, and hazard mitigation and community preparedness. Layers available in the map service: Layers 1-4: DEMs by Category (includes various DEMs, both hosted at NGDC, and elsewhere on the web); Layers 6-11: NGDC DEM Projects (DEMs hosted at NGDC, color-coded by project); Layer 12: All NGDC Bathymetry DEMs (All bathymetry or bathy-topo DEMs hosted at NGDC).
