MEaSUREs Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) Digital Elevation Model V001

This data set consists of an enhanced resolution digital elevation model (DEM) for the Greenland Ice Sheet. It was constructed by combining ASTER and SPOT 5 DEMs over the ice sheet periphery and margin with AVHRR photoclinometry for the interior and far north, and calibrating the data to approximate mean ICESat/GLAS elevations from 2003 to 2009. See Greenland Ice Mapping Project (GIMP) for related data.
