SoftWright LLC said its Terrain Analysis Package Software can use Space Shuttle Radar Topography Mission data acquired by NASA.
"This high-resolution topography data offers the benefit of much more accurate radio coverage predictions and path link studies than were realistic prior to the space shuttle mission," the company stated in its newsletter. "Elevation data is now available for most of Europe, Asia as well as South, Central and North America."
SRTM made use of a technique called radar interferometry, in which two radar images are taken from slightly different locations, the company stated. "Differences between these images allow for the calculation of surface elevation, or change." Info: www.softwright.com/srtmdatasales.html
