    Downloading Data off of World Wind into a GIS

    Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to download the data of a view in World Wind, to be used in a Geographic Information Sysytem such as Arc View, or ERDAS Imagine? I am currently researching for my 3rd year dissertation at The University of Sheffield, and for my project i would like to get an SRTM topographic base, overlayed with a landsat image (essentially what has been done in world wind, eg. Mt. Everest Screenshot). It would be really helpful if anybody could suggest anything as i am having difficulties getting the SRTM data myself off USGS Eros system. I am grateful for any responses on this matter!

    You are lucky, you will finish your dissertation fast, look what I found for you: https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/spaceimages...hp?id=PIA03332 and landsat images essaytyper.
    Hope it helps.

    Another source for SRTM or NED elevation data is USGS's seamless data viewer.

    http://seamless.usgs.gov/

    IIRR, STRM is 30m and NED (US only) is 10m and 30m. While STRM outside the US is 90m. Unless your lucky enough to have access (military and other agencies) to the higher resolution world STRM data.

    Another source for US data.

    NED= national elevation dataset
    STRM=shuttle topographic radar mission

    A good source for Landsat & STRM data is the Global Land Cover Facility's Earth Science Data Interface (GLCF's ESDI): http://glcfapp.umiacs.umd.edu:8080/esdi/index.jsp
