I have orthophotos regarding the area I am working on. I would like to get roughness lengths from GM by using this input. Is it possible? When I click on roughness tab I do not actually get anything. Does GM have the ability to give roughness lengths automatically? Could you pls help me?

Thanks in advance,

    You would need to have land cover data loaded to generate roughness lengths using a defined table of land cover types to roughness lengths. There are several built-in mappings for land cover types to roughness lengths for common land cover databases (like CORINE and NLCD, both of which are available using the File->Download Online Imagery/Data menu command). You can't generate roughness values just from imagery though.

    Hey Mike,

    Thank you very much for your useful and quick answer. Support of yours is exactly perfect. I downloaded Corine and now have roughness for my terrain. Thank you again..
