A digital terrain model of Antarctica in Triangulated Irregular Network (TIN) format, derived from ERS Radar Altimetry.
Entry ID: ERS_DTM_TIN_ANT


Summary
Abstract: An ESRI formatted triangular irregular network (TIN) of the Antarctic continental terrain, derived from ERS radar altimeter data. The data is in a Polar Stereographic projection with true scale at 71 degrees South. The TIN is unreliable in latitudes south of 82 degrees South and steep areas of the continent, particularly along the coast.

Quality The triangulated irregular network (TIN) was generated from slope corrected orthometric heights derived from ERS radar altimetry (refer to metadata record GRI_ORT_SLC_FIN). The ESRI ArcGIS 3D analyst extension was used to generate this TIN using only the valid points in the shapefile. The Antarctic coastline, from the Antarctic Digital Database version 3, was used as a breakline in the TIN ... View entire text
