Global Mapper Pro

No Scale Data In Export

ForgeSouth Global Mapper User
Hi All,

I have downloaded some ASTER DEM data and it all works great in GlobalMapper, however I want to export the heightmap to both Vue and WorldMachine. Problem is that when I import the heightmap the terrain looks nothing like it should and when I check the import in WorldMachine it says there is no scale data present in the file. I have created the GeoTIFF Header, a Prj file etc... but it is still not working.

How can I make sure the scale data is included in the file for export into other terrain editing packages?

Tried to attach the file but the uploader said it is not allowed.

Thanks in advance!

    What version of Global Mapper are you using?

    Can you be more specific about what you mean when you say that the terrain looks nothing like it should when you load it in the other program?  Is it in the wrong location?  Is it just that it looks different visually?  Does the exported data look correct when you reload it into Global Mapper?

    Can you be more specific about what type of scale data seems to be missing?

    The easiest way to upload data to the forum is to put it in a zip archive, the attach it.
