U.S. Navy 10-Minute Global Elevation and Geographic Characteristics

| DOI: 10.5065/4205-Q754

This free dataset, compiled by the U.S. Navy Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center (with data help from NCAR), contains global elevation data at 10-minute resolution. Each 10-minute by 10-minute area contains modal, maximum and minimum elevations, orientation of ridges, terrain characteristics, and urban development. These data are current as of December 1984.

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.
