    100 meter terrain data

    Can I somehow utilise FS Global 2005 100 meter interval terrain data (
    http://fsglobal2005.com/ )within Whazzup Plus and the Boeing GC in lieu of the
    1000 meter interval data from http://edcdaac.usgs.gov/gtopo30/gtopo30.asp?

    This software has made an extraordinary difference to the the fs2004 flying
    experience and it would be great to bring that detail to the rest of the
    system.


    BTW Does this terrain awareness stuff factor in to what we're doing (
    http://www.fswidgets.com ) It looks like a very interesting adjunct to the PM
    suite?

    Best wishes and thanks

    Re: 100 meter terrain data

    Hi,

    I have never looked at the 100 M data in FS, and I doubt I can recycle it...

    what would you need that for? Depicting all terrain in the ND?

    Ciao

    RE: 100 meter terrain data

    Thanks Enrico

    ...thought it would be good to increase the ND terrain display
    resolution
    from 1000 mtr to 100 mtr grids (more detail)using the FS global 2005
    mesh
    for fs2004.

    Best wishes

    Hmmm... I think that is a bit of an overkill for what the terrain display is

    intended for...

    RE: 100 meter terrain data

    What is the resolution / grid interval like in the real life terrain
    display... surely it must be greater than 1000 meters, which misses
    displaying many terrain elements?

    What is it intended for in real life? Does it have any role as a
    forward
    terrain awareness and warning system?

    Thanks Enrico et al

    Yes, that is what it is intended for, not a map display of any sort. I do
    not know what is used in real life, but 1000 meters is enough to keep you
    going into some serious terrain upon approach.

    Ciao

    Hi
    The Terrain Display is just that, a DISPLAY, for visual reference, much the
    same as wx radar.
    Terrain warnings are generated by GPWS, or EGPWS, and it is these warnings
    which are acted on by the crew.
    Regards
    Don
