5-minute Gridded Global Relief Data (ETOPO5)

Earth topography five minute grid (ETOPO5) is a gridded data base of worldwide elevations derived from several sources at a resolution of 5 minutes of latitude and longitude. Data are also available for on-line searching through the NGDC server at URL https://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/global/global.html. ETOPO5 is also available on CD-ROM, and a number of derived products are available from NGDC.
