I already have a python script for pushing the magic carpet around
from lat/lon to lat/lon in FG for extracting ground elevations.  If
it seems to you like a reasonable thing for me to do, I'll start
generating ground elevations for chunks of this dataset?  There
are over 100,000 objects in the FAA's Digital Obstruction File, so
it's bound to take a while.  If there's an ASCII format you'd
prefer to get the data in, I'd like to see a line or two of it so
that I can send stuff to you in a way that's simplest for you.
Also, if there's a particular subset of the data (e.g. cooling
towers) you'd like to see first, that's easy enough to do as well.
