We have a GIS tool that handles only SRTM DTED level 1 terrain files. SRTM level 1 terrain files are limited to 60 deg lat. So I need to fill up the gap from 60 lat up to 90 deg lat. I have DTED level 1 data covering the area 60 deg lat and upwards that could be used for that. Is there a way to convert that DTED level 1 data into SRTM data? Very much appreciated,

Not sure but try global mapper. – Sunil Mar 11 '13 at 11:08
Wow. I didn't even know that SRTM was natively in a different format. The elevation data I work with is from the shuttle missions, but it's all in DTED format. See if you can find a different source for your data. – kmort May 10 '13 at 14:38
