Chajnantor digital elevation models
We have made digital elevation models (DEM) of the MMA site on
Chajnantor to aid
us in the layout of the array configurations and roads and to
determine shadowing of astronomical objects by nearby mountains. The
vertical scale has been exagerated to make the topography more
striking. The partial mountain at the north central edge is Cerro

For more information, see
MMA Memo 160.
And here's the Japanese Pampa la Bola site located just to the north-northeast
