32-bit floating point GeoTIFF image and depth-colored hillshaded GeoTIFF image
The zip file contains a folder with a 32-bit GeoTIFF floating point GeoTIFF image at 5-meter resolution, a depth-colored hillshaded GeoTIFF image and the associated metadata and world files.
Use 7zip, WinZip, Peazip, pkUnzip, Keka or other uncompressing software
Access_Instructions: Data can be downloaded via the World Wide Web (WWW)
The ZIP file contains a 32-bit Floating Point GeoTIFF image compressed using the DEFLATE compression format with a world file. To utilize these data an image processing or GIS software package capable of viewing a 32-bit Floating Point GeoTIFF image with DEFLATE compression. Standard image viewing software cannot translate a 32-bit floating point GeoTIFF image. The depth-colored hillshade GeoTIFF image is 32-bit GeoTIFF with LZW compression which can be viewed in any image processing or GIS software package capable of viewing a 32-bit GeoTIFF image with LZW compression.
