The kernel size for image correlation matching is changed to 5 by 5 pixel from 9 by 9 pixel.<br />Offset adjustmentEvery calculated scene DEM has elevation offset of -5m.This offset (-5m) is adjusted.<br />Water body detectionGDEM version 1 could detect lakes larger than about 12km2.This improves to 1km2 in version 2.<br />New observed data<br />GDEM version 2 incorporates new ASTER data observed after September 2008. The voids and artifacts caused by lack of ASTER data will be improved.<br />Updates in GDEM Version2<br />
