[Flightgear-devel] Alaska 2arc elevation data USGSDEM

2011-10-16 Thread HB-GRAL
Hi Scenery Here I provide converted and clipped Alaska elevation data (2arc seconds) from NED USGS, for testing and developing purposes. The original data is distributed from NED in ArcGIS format, I needed to convert to USGSDEM format to create a new relief for my map. Maybe this will be

The 'bad' nodes are points that are co linear with a previous segment on the same contour. When this happens, the even-odd algorithms used for clipping only see one intersection instead of two. So, as a scanline is evaluated, if we were currently outside a poly, we would then determine we were

Flightgear already has such a system for scenery. You only download what you want, or need. Very few users need scenery for the whole world. Extending this concept to the bloated aircraft section of fgdata seems quite logical. I donĀ“t think that anyone is talking about splitting apart the

Jorg and Gijs are working on the new fgdata repo now. Therefore the existing fgdata repo is frozen as of now - even commit privileges are removed - hopefully permanently for the (historic) fgdata repo. They'll start a new (temporary) repository. Once the new repo is all setup and working as
