Digital Elevation Model

World elevation datasets : SRTM, ASTER, GEBCO, GMTED. STRM (30 m) is the most widely used for high resolution. There are multiple URLS to obtain SRTM ; download it from LPDAAC, dwtkns or remotepixel. GMTED2010 (1 km) is a reference DEM for med resolution. Check GEBCO and NOAA products for bathymetry. Use IGN DEM for France.

EU-DEM — Copernicus Land Monitoring Service

EU-DEM v1.0 is a digital surface model (DSM) of EEA39 countries representing the first surface as illuminated by the sensors. It is a hybrid product based on SRTM and ASTER GDEM data fused by a weighted averaging approach. The statistical validation of EU-DEM v1.0 documents a relatively unbiased (-0.56 meters) overall vertical accuracy of 2.9 meters RMSE, which is fully within the contractual specification of 7m RMSE (European Commission 2009).

Remote Sensing / MODIS

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument is operating on two satellites, Terra and Aqua. It views the entire surface of the Earth every one to two days. Its detectors measure 36 spectral bands and it acquires data at three spatial resolutions: 250-m, 500-m, and 1,000-m. MODIS data are available through Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) at https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/
