The file consists of 7 AHN2 32 bit height maps combined into one displacement map, that counts 55.000 x 2.000 pixels with a total of 10 million height points. The virtual drone camera travels with a velocity of 450 km/h at an altitude of 325 meter. According to the WGS84 the latitude of the LINEA RECTA is 5 degrees, 42 minutes and 7.131 seconds.
