1 Answer 1


SRTM at 1-arc second resolution has been published for this area. The spatial resolution is approximately 30m. Vertical accuracy is generally within your limits but, like any SAR DEM, varies with topography and land cover.

You can search and download them from USGS EarthExplorer (Data Sets -> Digital Elevation -> SRTM).
