The new high resolution DEM for Africa (SRTM)

I discover that the 30m SRTM DEM data is available for the whole Africa, which was originally available only for USA. This will be very important inputs for hydrogeomorphological and environmental researches and resource planning. Here is the news by NASA (California Institute of Technology).
30m X 30m resolution  SRTM DEM for Africa. It is interesting to clearly see that Ethiopian highlands are  highly visible as Tower of Africa, along with some other spots such as Mount Kilimanjaro.
