New high res DEM data of Moon
« on: November 18, 2011, 06:10:59 am »

Some open DEM data of the moon is very high res. The news sites are linking to some crap versions of it but with a bit of digging and a guess of the web page then these seem like a much better link. About 8 tiles of 600Mb if anyone has the time and energy to try and download them. Its a bit too slow for me - maybe we should all wait a few days for the news to die down a bit.

Nice, downloading :)
Though I'll need to add special support for the polar caps into mapressor first.

Drat, I can open it in GM12, but that is only a demo version, and my GM8 working copy can't process the particular IMG format used...  :'(

Why did they use a proprietary format for the high res data, but standard Geotiff for the 64 px Global image??  ::)
