I am looking for any raster database that allows free downloads of any kind of raster data pertaining to Damascus, Syria and the surrounding Turkey area. I'm trying to avoid USGS since it requires a lengthy sign-up.

I am open to any site that would allow me to query for data based on that location and extract it for free without too much of a sign up process. I don't care if its DEM, topology, orthography, lidar, etc.
