    Hello Korash!

    The "_rer" is just stuck to the name to diferenciate the input file and the output file, there was an error in the naming in step 4 I was using mosaico_re.tif instead of mosaico.tif, I've edited the post and hope it is clearer now.

    I usually run the commands in the same directory where the image files are, so there is no need for incluiding the entire path to the file when you run the command.

    Hope this helps!

    Well that works quite nicely!!

    I have attached a map of the Falkland Islands that I generated with this method in about 5 minutes after completing these steps outlined above. I ran the generated height field as a bump map 3 times to get the higher mountains.

    The res is not all that great 'cause when I opened the file in gimp it was set at 72 px. I cropped it in Gimp because I didn't have the coords on hand to do in FWtools, but I think that it shows the value of using the method none the less

    Repped and 5 rated by me at least

    :edit: need to spread the love some more before I can rep you again. Sorry.

    I just have one word (but it requires me to type at least 10 letters)...excellent!
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    I'm using the Google Earth overlays to get the SRTM data in ARCASCII...but I use MICRODEM (also free) to manipulate it...its pretty cool. trying to find the link to the offsite tutorial on here.
