I've
just discovered that as of January 2, USGS no longer offers the 1:250K
DEM data. I need four files for New Mexico. Any ideas where they might
still exist?

Can you not download the equivalent resolution NED from the seamless server?

I
don't know how to get it in exact 1-degree tiles from the seamless
server. The nice thing about the 1-by1-degree tiles was that I could
snap them to lat/long lines.

"Dennis,

see if you can find what you need at this site:

[url="http://"http://edcftp.cr.usgs.gov/pub/data/DEM/250/"]http://edcftp.cr.usgs.gov/pub/data/DEM/250/[/url]

Looks like it still has data posted.

"Thanks,
Rob . I panicked when I saw on the USGS page ""This information no
longer exists"" because, of course, I'd promised a map using shaded
relief yesterday and put off doing the DEM stuff until the last minute.

As
I discovered last night, it's still hiding on the FTP server. I wonder
if I should go ahead and grab all the ones for the areas where I do
regional maps. "
