Hi There

I've just managed to get my hands on quite an extensive library of DTED maps and also a key to reading where they are on the ground. My next step is to try to import one of these into SBPE with a view making a scenario/map of my local area. Is there any reference in the manuals on how to do this??

I think importing DTED files are only available in the Pro version - at least I saw an import DTED file option in the map editor of the Pro version which I cannot recall to be present in Pro PE.

But I would really be interested in those DTED files you are talking about ;)

Hi Daskal

thanks for the reply. I do have access to SB PRO and also perhaps the whole world in DTED.

The files are in a DT1 format if that means anything to anybody.

Irish,

PM 12Alfa or Dark Angel as they're both very knowledgable when it comes to making maps in SB. They both helped me out when I got started.

The DT1 file means that it is DTED Level 1 imagery. There are three available levels:

Level 0 has a post spacing of 30 arcseconds in latitude direction (ca. 900 meters)

Level 1 has a post spacing of 3 arcseconds (ca. 90 meters)

Level 2 has a post spacing of 1 arcseconds (ca. 30 meters)

So, the higher the level, the more detail it has.
