The model is generated from the SRTM v4 dataset (http://srtm.csi.cgiar.org/) and using a Naturalearth Shapefile (http://naturalearth.com). It's all smoothed, meshed, and simplified using that crazy beast of unmaintainable software sitting on our server (next to terrabytes of terrain data) which we wrote for our website [http://printablegeography.com](http://www.printablegeography.com). If you need topography models (of states, counties, countries, whatever) for teaching or other exciting purposes, we'd love to hear from you!

This model is intentionally smoothed to make it "printable". If we included every elevation data point from our dataset, the model wouldn't be printable because the slicer would choke on the file size and/or because of small and sharp features. If you head over to http://www.printablegeography.... you can zoom in on the map and our server will generate high res models on the fly. You can also send us a message if you want a custom design of a specific area in a particular shape.
