Digital Elevation Model from SRTM (Shuttle Radar Topography Mission)​ in Cambodia

According to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory website, the source mentioned that on September 23, 2014, the White House announced the highest-resolution topographic data generated from NASA's Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) in 2000 was to be released globally by late 2015. The announcement was made at the United Nations Heads of State Climate Summit in New York. Since then the schedule was accelerated, and all global SRTM data have been released. The Nasa’s SRTM is mounted on a Space Shuttle and obtains Earth surface data by remote sensing technology utilizing a synthetic aperture radar. Obtained data will be converted into height data called a Digital Elevation Model (DEM), and will be utilized to generate a more precise three-dimensional map of a larger observation area of the Earth than has ever been possible. Furthermore, the SRTM is an international research effort that obtained digital elevation models on a near-global scale. This SRTM V3 product (SRTM Plus) is provided by NASA JPL at a resolution of 1 arc-second (approximately 30m), clipping at the Cambodia boundary.
