Global Mountain Explorer 2.0

August 16, 2017

The Global Mountain Explorer supports the visual comparison of three well-known global mountain raster datasets. The first two were derived from 1km DEMs with the first being produced by Kapos et al. (2000), and the second by Körner et al. (2011). The third global mountain dataset, produced by Karagulle et al. (2017), was derived from a finer resolution 250m DEM.
