What you will learn

With this field guide application, you will learn to create a Web Processing Service (WPS) for the generation of a Digital Elevation Model taking as input a reference to a SAR product catalogue entry.

The SAR product catalogue entry contains the geographical area covered and this information is used to stich SRTM tiles together extending the geographical area half degree in all directions.

Where is the code

The code for this tutorial is available on GitHub repository Developer Cloud Sandbox SRTM DEM generation.

To deploy the application on a Developer Sandbox:

cd ~
git clone https://github.com/Terradue/srtm-dem.git
cd srtm-dem
mvn install

This will copy the application resources on the /application volume.

The code can be modified (e.g. to support other DEM) by forking the repository here: https://github.com/Terradue/srtm-dem/fork
