Digital Terrain Models (DTMs) of Europa in Geotiff format. The stereo DTMs cover 7 regions of Europa based on Galileo images. Two regions (Conamara Chaos and Yelland) are covered with two different resolutions. For a description of the methodology see Giese et al. 1999. The geological regions are described in Steinbruegge et al. 2020. Please also see Steinbruegge et al. 2020, Table 1 for a list of orthoimages used as stereo-pairs and for the resolution of the individual images and DTMs. References: B. Giese, R. Wagner, G.
