I actually posted this in the game section but it is pretty interesting even for other things.

This is the link to the thread.

What a coincidence, Im actually these very days exploring how to make good scenery fly-throughs here in Norway!

This could turn out to be right on the spot for me

That's brilliant - and exactly what I need Right This Second (tm)

One thing - I'm having real grief finding DEM data for the Ben Nevis region. There was even a Terragen challenge on that a while back, and I just don't seem to be able to find the data on the Intertubes. Any hints on good online DEM sources?

Never mind! Got it!

I had a total Moment of Awe when I realised that "SRTM" meant "Shuttle Radar Topology Mission" - I'm sat here, in my little room, chucking around data which was collected by the blimmin' Space Shuttle. Atlantis or one of her brood swept over the Grampians, probing with radio energy fingers from her gaping bay doors, and I've just picked up that information today, with it's 90 metre resolution.

That's sodding astounding right there.
