    Post Interesting resource for Height Maps

    While going through my bookmarks and cleaning house I discovered that I had this particular site bookmarked and suddenly realized that this is an incredible resource for us to use when making maps and we need a height map. It even has Middle Earth.

    Very nice, RPMiller. I've definitely bookmarked that link in my cartography folder. Thanks for the link.
    Cheers,

    Great stuff ! Don't forget that you can save any of these as Height.bmp and then run up my free dragon flight app to see in 3D if you dont have a better height field viewer.
