This high-resolution topographic elevation map image is provided for comparison purposes with an aerial, optical image in E01553. Radar imagery, such as that to be provided by SRTM, is instrumental in creating these types of topographic models. Both images depict the San Bernadino and San Gabriel Mountains in California, north of Los Angeles. Cajon Junction and Cajon Pass, as well as part of the San Andreas fault line, are clearly seen.
