$339.18 Left to Reach our Goal!

Every year we run a fundraiser to cover the cots of the server for the next year. This last year we had to upgrade servers due to an attack and the costs are a little higher, but as you can all tell it is much faster and much more reliable.  VERY IMPORTANT even though myZIP is reduced to 1MB you can still download courses and libraries by clicking on the course or library name on the Download Tab.  We need to raise $2,500 in order to increase everyone's myZIP size back to 30 MB and for those who have donated in the past once we reach our goal your myZIP file size will be increased back to 1GB. Members who made a donation of $5 or more in the last 30 days have already had their's increased. We recommend a donation of $25 however every dollar counts, however to increase your MyZip size you need to make a donation of $5 USD or more. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE LOGGED IN BEFORE MAKING A CONTRIBUTION.

Click Here to Increase your MyZip Max File Size to 1GB and activate the Shoutbox

The USGS service no longer provides DEMs in GEOTiff, you will need to get an alternate format, and then script a conversion to go to GEOTiff to use in 3DEM

That site will work fine Jevon, those are SRTM which 3DEM does process. I thought you were looking for US data from the USGS National Mapping site.

Hi J,

The plot looks a little hilly to me. 30M resolution. Ive passed it on. Canadian Course.
:) I usually use 10m resolution which is ideal.

Thanx for your help!
Jevon
