Rand's Global Elevation and Depth Data

| DOI: 10.5065/HKKR-P122

This historical dataset is recommended for ancillary use only and not as a primary research dataset. It has likely been superseded by a newer, improved dataset.


This dataset contains elevation and depth data at 1-degree resolution across the globe. This set was derived from a set originally compiled at Scripps Institute of Oceanography (see ds750.0). It has been superseded by more current Terrain Elevation datasets.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
