SRTM Tile Grabber
Note: This tool doesn't work as of January 2021, because the data paths it pointed to on external mirrors have changed. You can download tiles from CGIAR's website here. This map may still be useful for finding figuring out which file name you're interested in downloading.
This interface attempts to ease the pain of downloading elevation data from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission. Click on red tiles to download their corresponding data.
Each tile comes in GeoTIFF format at 90-meter resolution (6000x6000 pixels), from various mirrors I've found on the web. Try Development Seed or Linfiniti or this cheat sheet for some help on doing nice things with this data using GDAL.
The files linked here are version 4.1 of an effort by the folks at CIAT-CSI to scrub, polish, and remove gaps in the raw SRTM data released by NASA. The SRTM grid originally comes from this KMZ file for browsing the same data in Google Earth.
Any download policies of the respective mirrors apply.
