The map uses 1.3 million images and covers Earth’s land surface between 83 degrees North and 83 degrees South latitudes
An astonishing new map has revealed the elevation of nearly every place on Earth.
The Global Digital Elevation Model was created using nearly 1.3million images collected by a Japanese camera on board Nasa’s Terra spacecraft. It is made up of a giant grid of 23,000 tiles, with each height point spaced 98ft apart. (Pics)
