Does the specification for DTED 0 - 2 also apply to 3 - 5? I know the finest resolution supported by spec MIL-PRF-89020B is 0.1 arc-seconds which I think would barely cover up through DTED level 4, right? I'm guessing then that my code for reading DTED 0 - 2 using just the header information should still work for the later DTED levels but I have no way of proving this.

Anyone know where to download sample DTED Levels 3 and up? I could use that as well.

Thanks! Matthew Hanna


There is no "official" standard beyond DTED2 (yeah, citation needed...). There is data beyond that, but acceptance of that data is patchy.

For a sample of DTED3, see http://www.falconview.org/trac/FalconView/downloads (Link 20 - DTED3 for the Boulder area).

  • Thanks! At least the sample level 3 DTED will help me find if my code for reading DTED Levels 0, 1, and 2 will pass for reading level 3. – irtheman Aug 26 '13 at 18:33
  • @irtheman and, did it? – x29a Jul 20 '15 at 12:18
