Build Status

A python program that reads SRTM1 and SRTM3 Digital Elevation Model files.

Read on how this works: https://librenepal.com/article/reading-srtm-data-with-python/

Usage

  1. Put uncompressed *.hgt files on hgt/ directory or redefine the location of this directory with HGT_DIR environment variable.
  2. By default, the code will assume SRTM3 as the data format. You can also change it with SRTM_TYPE environment variable.
  3. Enjoy
from srtm import get_elevation
print('Mt. Everest's Elevation: %d' % get_elevation(27.988056, 86.925278))
