Overview
The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM), which flew on the NASA Shuttle Endeavor in February of 2000, collected a spectrum of data using its C-Band Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (IFSAR). The base resolution after processing these radar returns is better than 30 meters. Ground data processing being performed at JPL will convert the radar holograms into digital elevation models for use by terrain applications. In addition, the amplitude backscatter patterns reveal a rich and colorful world of 2 and 3 dimensional pictures.

Take a look at some sample composites - all generated from SRTM data:
