Everything - it's all there.

Sixth release completes the outstanding geographic
regions of the ArcticDEM production domain:
the Russian Far Eastern Federal Districts,
European Russia, and Scandinavia north of 60° latitude

The ArcticDEM
team is proud to announce high resolution terrain data is now available for
*97.4%* of the Arctic - an additional *32%* from past releases. Release
6 adds *21,751* 2m strip DEM components at 2m resolution to the ArcticDEM
inventory, with an additional *2,875* mosaic tiles at 5m resolution. This
brings the total number of available 2m DEMs to *74,929* – covering
over *70.5 million
square kilometers* – and the total number of 5m mosiac tiles to *2,462*,
covering nearly the entire Arctic.

Stay tuned for the final release of ArcticDEM in mid 2018! This next
release will focus on hole-filling of previous releases, and will update
all ArcticDEM data with the improved filtering methodology that was used
for Release 6.
