I'm
redesigning my webpage for a class, and wanted to try a DEM after a
hillshade in the background with a seperate white background cell in
front. More specifically, anyone have one that can be mosaiced cleanly,
like it looks continous, other wise I'd run back to the lab and try to
find a DEM that might work. Thanks for any help.

Crater
Lake data by the USGS.... it's public domain, so anybody can use it. I
would credit USGS somewhere on your site though. :) "

There
are some nice hand done shaded relief files (TIFF formats or EPS I
think) for some National Parks at the NPS GIS data depots

mike,
off terrainmap.com I followed a link to atdi-us.com which it says has a
free DEM available. even on this page which atdi hosts, [url="http://"http://213.186.44.91/mapserver/mapping.htm"]http://213.186.44.91/mapserver/mapping.htm[/url]
it says click here to get the free USA 100m dem. but no luck. any
suggestions? i just want a general purpose dem for usa (even if only 48
contiguous states). "

I'm
not sure where you can get a free complete DEM for the entire USA, my
guess would be USGS somewhere, but it would not be of high resolution.

SRTM30 would be a couple tiles at most and easy to work with, not to mention an appropriate resolution.
