I have been trying for half an hour, but haven't been able to download any maps yet, but these are apparently the best earth maps to date.

Be careful - these are DEMs (digital elevation models), not you standard topo maps. I managed to get one tile downloaded yesterday but then the site crashed.

I finally got around to getting some tiles of this. But, I dunno how to use these files. Does anyone know how these are supposed to be viewed? Or how they need to be manipulated in order to show the elevation data? Thanks.
