postdownload — A front-end to the usgs2sdf utility

Synopsis

postdownload file

Description

postdownload is a front-end to the usgs2sdf utility. postdownload takes as an argument the name of the gzipped Digital Elevation Model (DEM) down loaded from the US Geological Survey (ie: wilmington-w.gz). postdownload uncompresses the DEM file, adds necessary record delimiters, and invokes usgs2sdf to produce a SPLAT Data File (SDF).

USGS Digital Elevation Models may be downloaded from

http://edcftp.cr.usgs.gov/pub/data/DEM/…
Invoke postdownload with the name of each DEM file downloaded to produce a database of SPLAT Data Files.
