"Height files have the extension .HGT and are signed two byte integers.
The
bytes are in Motorola "big-endian" order with the most significant byte
first,
directly readable by systems such as Sun SPARC, Silicon Graphics and
Macintosh.
DEC Alpha and most PCs use Intel ("little-endian") order so some
byte-swapping
may be necessary. Heights are in meters referenced to the WGS84 geoid.
Data
voids are assigned the value -32768."

You're going to need to do some processing before you can use these
files.

Subject: [Gdal-dev] how to read SRTM files


Hi folks,

I'm downloading SRTM NASA ziped files from=20
ftp://e0dps01u.ecs.nasa.gov/srtm/South_America/ but I saw that I don't=20
know this file format(.hgt)

runnig "gdalinfo" one .hgt file I only got:

ERROR 4: `N01W050.hgt' not recognised as a supported file format.

GDALOpen failed - 4
`N01W050.hgt' not recognised as a supported file format.

Or my GDAL tools is missing something?

Is there any free software that can read this files?
