Does anyone know how to easily distinguish between SRTM vs DTED programmatically without opening file metadata header? both are .dt1 or .dt2 extensions.


SRTM is a data product, while DTED is a data product and a transfer format (MIL-PRF-89020B). SRTM data in DTED format can't be easily distinguished from DTED (it wouldn't be of much use to DTED readers if it were).
