OpenTopography - publicly available elevation data
San Diego Supercomputer Center, University of California has recently launched a portal to share High-Resolution Topography Data and Tools. Visit http://www.opentopography.org to obtain the publicly available data sets and tools. At the moment the portal offers a large number of LiDAR surveys (mainly in USA) and will hopefully lead to complete-coverage publicly available elevation data sets.

Geomorphometry is the science of quantitative land-surface analysis (also known as the science of DIGITAL TERRAIN MODELLING AND ANALYSIS). The focus of geomorphometry is calculation of surface-form measures (land-surface parameters) and features (objects), which may be used to improve the mapping and modelling of landforms, soils, vegetation, land use, natural hazards, and other information.
