Global 30m Earth DEM data to be released.
News in that the 30m shuttle radar data for earth is going to be released for the whole earth. Right now you can only get it for USA with rest of world at 90m. It will be phased release over next 12 month. Good news for anyone doing local area 3D terrain.
U.S. Releases Enhanced Shuttle Land Elevation Data - NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Note that you can get 50m data for UK from Ordnance Survey as well. The NASA usage license is less restrictive than OS so for UK members this would be an increase in res and freedom of use.
