Working with DEMs in ArcGIS PDF Print E-mail
Written by Glenn Letham (GISuser editor)   
23 August 2004
Geomatics Systems Inc. has released this new tool for ArcGIS users. Grid Translator Pro (GTP) for ArcGIS translates a wide range of raster DEM formats (SRTM, GTOPO30, USGS SDTS, Erdas, Vertical Mapper, Geotiff, Idrisi, Surfer, etc.) easily for use in ArcGIS. GTP for ArcGIS® opens all the functionalities of ArcGIS® to more than 38 raster formats including the formats of the major GIS industry products: Idrisi, Surfer, PCI, Erdas, Vertical Mapper, Geosoft and MapInfo. With GTP for ArcGIS®, the user can import seamlessly a GIF image, a SRTM dataset, a SPOT image or a Surfer grid within the same process and the same tool.

The import process is batch oriented allowing users to create ArcGIS® grids from multiple datasets and from a wide range of data formats using a single and unified user interface.

Whether you have a raster dataset produced by Surfer, Idrisi, PCI, Vertical Mapper, Geosoft or ENVI, a satellite image (SPOT, Radar, NOAA, NITF), a nautical chart (BSB), a bitmap image (GIF, Bitmap, Jpeg, PixMap), or a DEM (SRTM, SDTS, USGS DEM, GTOPO30, DTED); GTP for ArcGIS® will bring these data to ArcGIS® image format (Erdas Imagine) with few clicks.

Numerous Free DEM data resources are available on the Internet. Suggested DEM resources with data supported by GTP include:

See http://www.geomaticssystems.com/Products/GTPArcGIS.htm - a free 10 day evaluation version is available for download.

Note: GTP is also avaiolable for users of Vertical Mapper.
