    ckirmser, if you tell me what you want to do over at ME-DEM I'll be able to say if I can help.

    My two main apps are Global Mapper and World Machine. GeoTerSys is also a big part of it, but tends to lie at the end of the pipeline, and so depends a lot on me finishing up stuff.

    It's been some time...
    The project has officially moved forward and we are now in new territory! That update took about a year....bit laggy this internet ain't it?!

    The northern flank of the Erd Nimrais is finished. I'm going to do some work over the next few days on the Misty Mts river exits, and then it's back into Global Mapper with this!

    Looks fantastic.

    Cheers guys

    I don't know if I've posted these before or not. I use Global Mapper. The contour map was created by hand using data from all my role playing book sources; out of maybe 70 or so books, about 6 or 7 proved helpful.
    The map was drawn in Photoshop at 10K pixels square with a 1 px wide pencil. Your computer screen is about 1K square and this full stop is 1px. Can you imagine what that was like?...hahaha..it was quite insane. I literally lived and breathed that map for maybe 3 or 4 months.

    some more with underlying terrain. This is pre- processed terrain. Not the final product.

    Oh yes I've got a texture folks can have. It's a seamless 4096 aerial view of woodland. It may well be tileable as well. I made it in imagesynth using shots from GoogleEarth of the Black Forest. Each is 40 megs.

    I can't even begin to imagine the insanity. Ravs, you gotta get this guy a straight jacket - he's foaming at the mouth, scratching the paint off the walls, and eating dirt. You are, without doubt. the most dedicated mapper here, man. Cheers and keep up the epicness.

    hahaha!...nice one Ascension. I've seem some pretty cool maps round here- the one on the front page is excellent! I especially like the little detail with the trees and bushes. Awesome that! I'm always learning. I'm beginning to wonder if there's a better way of using real world terrain data. I think I'm missing a trick there.

    Hey if any of you guys ever want seamless, tileable, textures of vegetation etc from Google I can knock them up with a little program called imagesynth. If I post links where would be the best place to do it?

    I would say the Mapping Elements forum would be the best place.
