Forum user DanTDBV, spreads the knowledge again, on how to work with terrain data. Cheers !
There are multiple types of data, helpful to the trackbuilder available from the Danish government.
Such as DHM (The Danish Height model) and Orthophotos (airplane photos). DHM consists of LIDAR, that is LAS pointclouds compressed into LAZ files, different kinds of ASC surface models and large GEOTIFF images.
I will do another tutorial on getting the Orthophotos to keep this tidy.
The Danish data is downloadable from...
This is to keep others from having as bumpy, a ride into this as i have had. Many frustrations.
Finding the right way into LIDAR point clouds, is like navigating a dense jungle.
There are so many purposes and ways to use LIDAR data, that we have acces to a forest full of free and paid for software, plus lots of file formats. Ad to that, all the things you can do to those files.
What is LIDAR?
Lidar (also written LIDAR, LiDAR or LADAR) is a remote sensing technology that measures distance..
One year back (and one year before that) "as usual", Kunos prepared a big announcement for December 31st. This year is no exception, even if it also throws a glimpse to what has already happened before looking towards 2016. While it is true that hopes were to release about 50 cars in 2015, we did see no less than 32 new cars added to the game, as free bonus content or DLC. Some might argue about "countless" number of DLCs, but I/we prefer this model to any other like "full new game every year" or "renting a service to allow use of purchased content"..
Looking towards the future,...
