Valle de la Plata Settlement Dataset
The elevations above sea level in the three survey zones (western, central, and eastern) are provided in two GIS formats: Idrisi (Version 14--Kilimanjaro) and GEOTIFF raster files. These are compressed self-extracting files for Windows, and thus must be uncompressed on a computer running the Windows operating system. After downloading, place the files in the desired folder and double click them. Each Idrisi compressed file will produce two files with the same name and the extensions .RST and .RDC. Each GEOTIFF compressed file will produce two files with the same name and the extensions .TIF and .TFW. The cell values in the GIS files are elevations above sea level in meters, rounded to 50-m increments, as in a contour map.
