The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission C-band data for North America and South America are available to the public.

The SRTM radar contained two types of antenna panels, C-band and X-band. The near-global topographic maps of Earth called Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) are made from the C-band radar data.  These data were processed at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and are being distributed through the United States Geological Survey's EROS Data Center.

Data from the X-band radar are used to create slightly higher resolution DEMs but without the global coverage of the C-band radar. The SRTM X-band radar data are being processed and distributed by the German Aerospace Center, DLR

 

ABOUT THE X-band DATA:

To access X-band data products and information, go to the DLR web site.

During this time, JPL generated and released "showpiece" derived products (shaded relief, perspective views, anaglyphs, etc.) produced from preliminary DEMs.
