It is now possible to take measurements based on the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission database (SRTM) for:
Measurement Point: elevation
Measurement Line: 3D distance, Slope, Delta Z
The SRTM is automatically selected when no DSM or DTM is available in the area.
User benefit: elevation measurements are now possible even when the user has not supplied elevation data (DSM, DTM).
Ex: for users working with satellite images only.
Limitations: it is less precise than a DSM or DTM; the SRTM resolution will depend on the area of interest.
Currently not available: SRTM display on a map, Area, Volume, elevation profile.
