Alaska North Slope 100 m Digital Elevation Model (DEM)



This data set is a 100-m resolution Digital Elevation Model (DEM) for the Brooks Range and the North Slope of Alaska. The DEM was created by merging 100 National Elevation Dataset DEM tiles for areas of Alaska north of 67 degrees north latitude. A small area of Canada, derived from the global GTOPO30 DEM, is also included. The resulting DEM is in the Alaska Albers conical equal area projection, using the North American Datum of 1927 (NAD27). Data are available in GeoTIFF, Arc/INFO grid, and binary Band Interleaved by Line (BIL) formats.
