Welcome to the Global Elevation Data Testin Facility!

The Global Elevation Data Testing Facility (GEDTF) is a database of anthropogenic and natural features found around the world that are flat (or nearly flat) and large (longer than 500m and wider than 15m). An additional characteristic of these features is the homogeneity of the material from which their surface was made. At present, the majority of the features found in the database are runways. With its strict geometric and technical parameters, such as smoothness and homogeneity of the surface, runways can be an ideal test bed for a range of calibration and accuracy assessment tasks of the and space-based remote sensing systems, not only for the testing of the data product, as the name of the facility suggests. An example of how the GEDTF facility can be used is shown in a Case Study.

The financial inception to the GEDTF project was provided by the Universiti Brunei Darussalam through the Science and Technology Research Grant UBD/PNG/MoE/S&T/2 (2009/2010). A hardworking team of Students and Staff of Universiti Brunei Darussalam is also acknowledged. The project is supervised by K. Becek.
