November 3, 2010: ASTER GDEM Explorer (DEMEX) released: a joint effort between CSISS, GMU and LP DAAC

The Land Processes Distributed Active Archive Center (LP DAAC) announces the release of the ASTER Global Digital Elevation Model (GDEM) Explorer tool (DEMEX).

This tool can be used to browse and download ASTER GDEM data based on geographic areas of interest or predefined regions, including state, province, and county (for the United States). Data output from DEMEX is available in GeoTIFF or ArcASCII format. DEMEX is the result of collaboration between the LP DAAC and George Mason University's Center for Spatial Information Science and Systems.

Please check out this page for details: DEMEX

September 28, 2010: "Facilitating Data-intensive Research and Education in Earth Science: A Geospatial Web Service Approach" book published

This book was published by LAP LAMBERT Academic Publishing.
ISBN-10: 3838397142
ISBN-13: 978-3838397146

This book is authored by Dr. Meixia Deng and Dr. Liping Di.
