Anyways, ive been using the following terrain data, two different ones ,
http://seamless.usgs...less/viewer.htm NED 1/3 Arc Second ( no 1/9 was available for the area of the tutorial )
http://dds.cr.usgs.g.../North_America/ SRTM V2_1
What terrain would you go for in a route ?
Just want to make sure i havent missed some"new, undiscovered" terrain data before uploading.

I havent covered REDEM, i have never used it. In fact, for my horseshoe curve route, the one i started last year, i did the seamless NED 1/9 arc terrain with great results.
Too bad NED 1/9 doesnt have more of the US covered
I hope others in the community will help with Redem as i know nothing about it. If you will, i can upload the document to you, its written in wordpad that comes with Windows 7 64bit, quite a big file with all the pictures.
Im working on it right now actually, trying to finish it. I know there are many who want to create a prototypical / semi prototypical route, but the time to actually sit down and go through it all is a chore, it was for me :-)
Im hoping the tutorial will enable more users to take the plunge into route building, with terrain, makes it so much better. :-)

Im still awaiting Cascade Game Foundry`s next move, i wonder what they are up to, any clue Marc ?
Regarding how i do my terrain, i download BIL files, NED 1/3 Arc, i then convert the BIL files to HGT files. Same terrain as i did with my own HSC, looked fantastic ! Mind you, when i started my own HSC route last year, i downloaded NED 1/9 files as i was lucky enough to see that Pennsylvania was covered with 1/9... I did the same back then, downloaded NED 1/9 in BIL format and converted them to HGT files.

I mentioned above that BIL is resampled down to 1/3 arc second - I meant "1 arc second (30m). I'm fairly certain that the BIL files you converted to HGT were resampled to the 1 arc second supported by HGT files.
