Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

From now on, we will assume that you are using SRTM-3 data. Unless otherwise noted, the process for SRTM-1 is identical.
Create a new folder in your <tt>TerraGearWork/Data/</tt> folder called <tt>SRTM-30/</tt>. Now download appropriate data from ftp://e0srp01u.ecs.nasa.gov/srtm. You want ALL .hgt.zip files covering the area you want to create. Depending on the size of your scenery, there may be quite a few. The reason why the directories are called SRTM-30 is because genapts (a tool we will meet further on) will look for a few known, hardcoded hard-coded directories in it’s its working directory. SRTM-30 is one of them and this is the least confusing in that list.
Unzip all of the .hgt.zip files using your favorite software.
