JSC2000-E-02647 (12 February 2000) --- The rectangle in the center of this map marks the area in New Mexico upon which the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission first devoted its attention. Only 10 hours and 55 minutes after the STS-99 launch, first data were sent to Earth for quality checks. At the mission control center in Houston, the checks were performed on the SRTM X-band data with a quicklook processor. It uses a super fast algorithm developed at DLR. Other images in this series display the various data gathered in the area, north of El Paso, Texas. Note: All X-SAR imagery and related charts and maps are provided by DLR, Germany's national aerospace resource center as well as the national space agency.
