Dataset of relief degree of land surface in the Green Silk Road

The Relief Degree of Land Surface is a comprehensive representation of regional altitude and surface cutting degree. Using the resampled Digital Elevation Model data and the Feng(2007) Model, the Relief Degree of Land Surface dataset of the Green Silk Road in 1km resolution was developed. The dataset includes the spatial distribution data of the Relief Degree of Land Surface, elevation, and flat area at 1km covering the Green Silk Road, as well as each country of the Green Silk Road.
