ASTER global digital elevation model (ASTER GDEM)​ in Cambodia

The dataset of ASTER Global Digital Elevation Model (ASTER GDEM) places great emphasis on topographic information of the global terrain. As the ASTER was created with the global coverage, the dataset was mainly going to extract for the specific Cambodia zone.

Following this, the ASTER GDEM, acquired by a satellite-borne sensor"ASTER" to cover all the land on earth has been developed by a joint collaboration between The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan (METI) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

This dataset provided the part of original data downloadable and coverage in Cambodia​ by technical data mapping team of Open Development Cambodia Organization.
