ETOP05 Elevation Data for Areas Greater than 50 degrees North


ETOPO5 is a collection of several gridded elevation data sets, combined into a single, global coverage. The data sets are of low resolution and accuracy, and therefore are useful for only the most general descriptions of polar topography. 5-Minute Gridded Global Relief Data Collection (ETOPO5) gridded elevation data for the Earth north of 50 degrees North were provided to National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) by the National Geophysical Data Center.
