This webinar will focus on the ArcticDEM project, which will produce the first very high resolution, publicly available digital surface model of the entire Arctic region above 60° North including all of Alaska, Greenland, and Kamchatka. The project converges civilian, high-quality sub-meter stereo imagery, petascale computing, and open source photogrammetry software. This webinar will provide information on their collaboration, the timeline, and the expected ArcticDEM products, as well as the data characteristics, acquisition status, and plans for the summer 2016 Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Rdar (ifsar) acquisition.
