    Default South America DEM

    Hello,

    I am in need of a DEM for all of South America (free). I have tried googling this, but with no luck. The DEM does not need to be high resolution. 1km would do. Any web sites out there that I can download free DEMs?

    Thanks.

    Try searching for SRTM. The basic data is free but finding a usable DEM for the particular area you want without any holes or errors can sometimes be a pain.

    It's not DEMs, but http://www.naturalearthdata.com/ has nice information. http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/global/global.html is a good source for DEMs. http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/topo/gltiles.html also works well.
