I am trying to recreate an area in North Carolina. Has anyone tried using the USGS maps to create .RAW files or have any experience in recreating terrain this way? Would love to learn how to do this but would also be willing to pay an experienced person to recreate this area over a 9-15 grid area.

Thanks
Mike

Hi Michael,

I am not sure if you've seen this or not but Diva has a terrain generator available that pulls USGS data. I've not used it but judging by the pictures it does a great job.

Here is the link: http://www.ics.uci.edu/~lopes/terraingen/

As a North Carolinian I have to ask what area you want to recreate? If I was a betting man, I'd wager the Blue Ridge Parkway area. Regardless, I would love to see the results!

Actually when I was in the military I spent quite a bit of time running around the woods of Uwharrie National Forest. Came to love the area. Will give that site a look. Thank you so much.
