How to get and install Space Shuttle Height Data (SRTM)

  1. Go to ftp://edcsgs9.cr.usgs.gov/pub/data/srtm/SRTM30/ and read the SRTM30 documentation first.
  2. change the directory where your desired data are placed
  3. Download only .dem.zip and .hdr.zip data.
  4. Extract (unzip) them into a directory where all SRTM30 data will be saved later so that other areas are combined automatically by Kashmir3D.
  5. .hdr file has UNIX format (CR) so convert it into Windows format (CR/LF). (The most simple way: Open it with Wordpad and save it again.)
  6. Drag the extracted .dem files from the explorer onto Kashmir3D, which converts them into .hgt data and registers these files automatically.


How to get and install Landsat Picture Data

  2. Select Map Search and input required fields (select TM and TM+) and start search.
  3. Meta file is always necessary to down load (Meta file has .met extension.)
  4. For normal picture of visible wave length, band 1, 2, and 3 are enough. (The number of band is indicated like xxxx1.tif .. xxxx8.tif.
  5. Extract the data files and put them into a directory. Rename meta file into xxxx.met, if it has .xxxx.met.txt.
  6. Drag .tif files from the explorer onto Kashmir3D, to convert them into .xem files and registers these files automatically.


How to use these data by Kashmir3D (To combine SRTM height data and Landsat pictures, it is necessary to create .mat file.)
