[Solved] Is it possible to use my custom height data?
Let's say I have a heightmap from world machine (or similar). Is it possible to use it with TerraForm somehow?
I tried to convert regular tiff to geotiff with GeoTiffExamine tool (it writes needed info inside tiff), but no luck - plugin crushed on import.
I think it would be nice to have possibility to make needed resources by hands - when you don't need GIS precision - like when you make some custom fantasy worlds.
Sorry for the slightly delayed response.
It is possible, yes. You would need to recreate some of the GIS meta data and them import the CustomHeightmap.tiff into a GIS (e.g. QGIS), then export it to GeoTiff. The meta data you need is the projection/datum of the source file, and the pixel dimensions.
Did you create CustomHeightmap.tiff by enhancing an existing DTM file in World Machine?
If it's the same dimensions/resolution, this is quite easy because you can just grab the data from the original file. If not, you will need to do some maths.
You would need to try to figure out the projection/datum some how. Where did you get the data from?
If you know where on the world it is, it should be possible to figure it out.
