TanDEM-X is a single-pass radar interferometer mission, which is comprised of two formation flying satellites, with the primary goal of generating a global Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of unprecedented accuracy. This paper provides a quality summary of the TanDEM-X global DEM products available from February 2016 with respect to the DEM relative and absolute height accuracy and data coverage both at the global and geocell level.
