5.B.i.g. DTED within 50o of the Equator
Besides the areas noted above, DEMs within 50o of the Equator were available from NIMA (via NIMA/DTED Level 0) and Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research, Ltd. (LCR) (via USGS/GTOPO30). The coverage for New Zealand from LCR was the only one
available at that resolution for New Zealand, so was used in GLOBE. For areas where NIMA/DTED Level 0 data were available, the discrete (spot) values were determined by independent review to be the most consistent and representative values. Thus
these were selected, where available, outside of coverage of Japan (GSI) and Italy (SGN).
