I downloaded US Elevation Data (NED) and would like to export as a dem. Not sure if I my procedure is correct. This is what I did:

download US Elevation data (NED)
zoomed in
File menu>Export Raster and Elevation data>Export dem
drew a box to select a smaller area
saved

But when I try to open in WindFarmer it does not load.

Any suggestions?

thanks
Heather

    Heather,

    That is the correct procedure to export to the USGS DEM format. I'm not familiar with WindFarmer. Perhaps it has limitations on what specific types of DEM files that it can load or something?

    Thanks,
