Where can I find an open detailed DEM/DTM model of Israel for some research?

I have found:

This one below is 25m and is nice (from the link), but a pdf, not the raster, is provided.

Israel Hall et al  1990s

    What is the highest-resolution raster you've been able to find so far? – csk Dec 21 '20 at 18:05
  • the one in diva gis... not sure what's the resolution, but it's poor. – Oliver Amundsen Dec 21 '20 at 19:41

The resolution of the DEM from diva GIS is 30 seconds, which is about 800 to 900 m at 30 degrees latitude. That raster is aggregated from CGIAR-CSI source data, which is accurate to 3 seconds. That's about 90m resolution. You can get that 90m DEM here. It's broken up into separate tiles, and Israel falls across the dividing line between tiles, so you'll need to download multiple tiles.

  • Super, thaks so much. Any ideas as to the 25m raster that was developed by Hall et al in the 90's? – Oliver Amundsen Dec 22 '20 at 12:57

If you are an academic you may be able to source it from land info or purchase it from them , they appear to be offering it even down to 5m resolution?
