I am putting together a map of Aspen's Sister Cities. I am trying to find the elevation (approximate) of Shimukappu, a ski resort in the northern part of the Country.

The Lat-Long is 43 degrees 10' North, 142 degrees 18' East.

I keep finding shaded releif datasets, but can't find an elevation grid.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Thank you.

GTopo30 has that point at ~500m.

You should be able to download a DEM from here at ~90m resolution:

Thank you for the quick and helpful replies.

The ~500m is probably good for my purpose, but I will also check the GTOPO30 dataset and seamless.usgs.gov.

Thanks.

Mary
