The department is responsible for editing and quality controlling data under the international TREx-programme (TandemX High Resolution Elevation Data Exchange Programme). The work is carried out as part of SDFE’s general cooperation with the Danish Ministry of Defense (MOD) and the result is a global digitalized elevation model, the first of its kind in the world. Data from TREx is also an element in the agency’s work in the mapping of Greenland.
The department consists of 19 highly specialized employees including both technicians and academics, who excel in working with large amounts of data in an international environment.
