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.
