The area covered by this geoid estimated is 37° < lat < 48°, 6° < lon < 19° with a grid spacing of 1.5' x 1.5'. The computation is based on the remove-restore technique, using the high resolution digital terrain model SRTM90m for the topographic reduction and the EGM2008 geopotential model. The solution has been obtained in one step only over the whole area using the FFT estimation method.
