In order to visualize maps in 3D, and to obtain accurate info about the height of a given point at a map, GPS navigation and map viewing apps need digital elevation models (DEM).
DEM1 eases the download of those models in SRTM standard (.hgt extension), wich is used to several apps, like OruxMaps. The data downloaded by DEM1 are, specifically, in SRTM1 standard, what means that its resolution is the best available at the moment in this format (1 arcsecond, or ~100 feet) which is much better than the commonly downloaded by other apps, in SRTM3 standard (3 arcsecond, or ~300 feet).
The advantages of using such precise data are evident. Often, when we are planning a route at home, we don't have a precise perception of our track's profile, something vital if we practise mountain bike or trekking. Other times, we found ourselves in the middle of the mountain, with mist, and equipped with a GPS navigator with a map that doesn't include accurate contour lines (like ortophotos, most of the online maps and several offline).
Differences between SRTM1 and SRTM3 are obvious, and easily appreciable opening a map in any viewer, switching from a SRTM3 and a SRTM1 DEM. A simple sample can be seen here: http://goo.gl/ujBwo
Currently supported zones: Europe, the U.S., Central America and Oceania.

About Me and the App:
Hello, I'm Trey. I'm the guy that made this app.
I believe that one of the great purposes of life is to have as many awesome experiences as possible. To fill your life with stories -- this is a wonderful goal. To this end, I created this app very much for myself. I am a travel photographer, and I run the #1 travel photography blog in the world at StuckInCustoms.com -- so this is an area where I have a lot of experience.
There is a big problem that this app solves for me, personally. I have limited time, and I want the best information about where to visit and what I will see, generally, when I get there. When most people look at travel guides, they simply look for the pretty pictures and think, "I want to go THERE." This takes that experience to the next order of magnitude, and makes it all extremely practical with Trip-Planning.
Even if you don't travel, you still want to find interesting places to see and experience within a short drive of your home. Or maybe there are hidden gems right in your very town that you've never discovered. Because our algorithm is a cool mix of crowdsourcing plus human-curated lists, you'll see some really good results.
All in One:
So, this is it, Stuck on Earth. You don't need to use multiple apps, webpages, and other resources to plan your trip. All the countries, cities, and rural areas of the world are in here -- all in one place. Add photos to your trip, and they'll be available offline. Everything you need is right here in this app. Thanks, and enjoy!

ABOUT TREY RATCLIFF
Trey Ratcliff is a photographer, artist, writer and adventurer. His photos and stories capture the beauty of exotic travel destinations and the humor of bizarre situations he often finds himself in.

Trey is best known as a pioneer in HDR photography. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, a technique whereby multiple levels of light are captured for a particular scene and then combined into a single photograph. The resulting images are richly detailed and more closely resemble what you recall of the scene in your mind.
Trey’s photo, “Fourth on Lake Austin”, was the first HDR photograph to hang in the Smithsonian. He has been featured on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and the BBC, and his photos have accumulated more than 50 million views. His best-selling book, "A World in HDR" sold out on Amazon in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia. Trey has taught many thousands of people the secrets to his techniques via his free HDR tutorial and a more detailed video tutorial, both are available on his website, http://stuckincustoms.com.
Trey is also a successful entrepreneur. His endeavors include popular iOS and Android apps such as 100CamerasIn1 (over 1 million downloads!) and Stuck On Earth (a completely unique travel photography app). In addition he launched Flatbooks.com, which is a rapidly growing eBook publisher.
