DT2 file extension - DTED Digital Terrain Elevation Data level 2
What is dt2 file? How to open dt2 files?
File type specification:
The dt2 file extension is used for special Digital Terrain Elevation Data format. In support of military applications, the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) has developed standard digital datasets (Digital Terrain Elevation Data) which is a uniform matrix of terrain elevation values which provides basic quantitative data for systems and applications that require terrain elevation, slope, and/or surface roughness information.
DTED2 is the basic high resolution elevation data source for all military activities and systems that require landform, slope, elevation, and/or terrain roughness in a digital format.
DTED2 is a uniform gridded matrix of terrain elevation values with post spacing of one arc second (approximately 30 meters). Due to extremely sparse area coverage there is no catalog listing for DTED2.
The information content is equivalent to the contour information represented on a 1: 50,000 scale map.
