Elevation dataset of the Third pole (2013)

Elevation dataset of the Third pole (2013)

Digital Elevation Model (DEM) is a kind of solid ground Model that represents the ground Elevation in the form of a set of ordered numerical arrays.

The third pole region of40°1′52″N~23°11′59″N、105°43′45″E~61°28′45″E of the roof of the world ecological geographic area,These include the qinghai-tibet plateau, the hengduan mountains, the Himalayas, the Hindu kush mountains and the pamirs plateau.Classified according to:At 4000 m altitude as a benchmark, the fusion of slope, reference mountain integrity and ecological system integrity, the spatial resolution of 0.008 ° x 0.008 °
