GLOBE data is located at
for South Africa use
One can get it via ftp
PASSWORD: [your email address]
: cd GLOBE_DEM/data/elev
: get [filename] or mget [filespecpattern]
For Java one has to do a byte swap
dd if=inputfilename of=outputfilename conv=swab
Create a directory for the GLOBE data.
In my setup I use C:/T3D2/DATA/GLOBE/ and a new directory that I called AFRICA or EUROPE or whatever area your GLOBE file represents
For example create a C:/T3D2/DATA/GLOBE/AFRICA directory.
Into the AFRICA directory put the GLOBE file and call it AFRICA.DEM .
It has to be the same name as the directory.
Also put a screen grab from the area as AFRICA.gif
In the T3D2 code choose from the GLOBE data your area,
type in the center coordinates of your flying site
the amount of strips , ( 1 strip is rougly 1km) towards each side
and give it a name
One can also reuse a previously defined site and modify the values and save it under a new name
