Everything - it's all there.

Sixth release completes the outstanding geographic
regions of the ArcticDEM production domain:
the Russian Far Eastern Federal Districts,
European Russia, and Scandinavia north of 60
° latitude

The ArcticDEM team is proud to announce high resolution terrain data is now available for 97.4% of the Arctic - an additional 32% from past releases. Release 6 adds 21,751 2m strip DEM components at 2m resolution to the ArcticDEM inventory, with an additional 2,875 mosaic tiles at 5m resolution. This brings the total number of available 2m DEMs to 74,929  covering over 70.5 million square kilometers  and the total number of 5m mosiac tiles to 2,462, covering nearly the entire Arctic.

Stay tuned for the final release of ArcticDEM in mid 2018! This next release will focus on hole-filling of previous releases, and will update all ArcticDEM data with the improved filtering methodology that was used for Release 6.

Overview

ArcticDEM is an NGA-NSF public-private initiative to produce a high-resolution, high quality, digital surface model (DSM) of the Arctic using optical stereo imagery, high-performance computing, and open source photogrammetry software.

Upon completion, ArcticDEM will encompass all land area north of 60° north latitude including all of Greenland, the State of Alaska, and the Kamchatka Peninsula of the Russian Federation. The project data releases began with Alaska on September 1, 2016, and will continue to other regions in the Arctic on a quarterly basis.

Re: ArcticDEM Release 6: Everything - it's all there.

Larry D Hinzman


Congratulations Paul, and to your entire team at the Polar Geospatial Center. 

I am copying Cryolist on this note because I believe the magnitude of this achievement deserves very public acknowledgement.  Prior to this effort, the moon was mapped better than the Arctic.  This new data set will enable Arctic scientists and engineers to complete many projects that were previously only crudely possible.  I'm certain these data will be a tremendous asset for hydrology studies (plus, now I can give up trying to do hydrology on the moon!). 

We should also thank the National Science Foundation for supporting this effort and the Arctic Council for championing this project among their top priorities.
