The 3D terrain and real time viewer which is the combination of the MeDEM (www.me-dem.me.uk) digital elevation modelling of Middle Earth and the Outerra (www.outerra.com) 3D world rendering viewer have released a FREE version of the data and demo for you to download and enjoy.

This has been for us a 5 year or so on and off effort to recreate the whole of Middle Earth terrain in high resolution 3D mapping so that in time, we hope that we can expand on this and model some of the land marks, cities and other man made features on the top.

So if you've ever dreamed of flying around Middle-Earth, of sitting by the cool lapping shores of Lindon, of strolling through the singing forests of Lorien, or racing over the cruel spires of Mordor ... now's your chance!
Just download and install it.

You can get the downloads from several places. You will need the Outerra (Anteworld) tech demo and a copy of the MeDem data. For the instructions on where to get them I would recommend going over to the outerra forums post:
Middle-Earth World for Outerra released! (http://www.outerra.com/forum/index.php?topic=1491.0)

To whet your appetite you can watch this video but if you want more information then head to this sites main forum topic about MeDEM (http://www.cartographersguild.com/general-miscellaneous-mapping/1332-middle-earth-dem-project.html).
