The coefficient of variation (evaluated at a 1km spatial resolution) of topographic information acquired by two sources: (i) the 90m NASA Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission (SRTM) for those regions below 60° latitude and (ii) the 1000m GTOPO30 for those regions above 60° latitude. The dataset is currently being used in conjunction with other datasets to help characterize ecosystem properties and biodiversity within the Canadian Boreal region (Brandt, 2009).
