Minimize TanDEM-X DEM of Hokkaido, Japan

This Digital Elevation Model displays an area on the island of Hokkaido in Japan. Hokkaido is Japan's second largest island and is located at the north end of Japan. The island is seismically active and has numerous active volcanoes.

The WorldDEM - Global Digital Elevation Model is a unique approach to digital elevation modelling: TerraSAR-X & TanDEM-X radar satellites collect data simultaneously in bi-static constellation. The WorldDEM will cover the entire global landmass and have an unprecedented quality with 2m (relative) / 10m (absolute) accuracy within a 12m raster.
