You will need the MSFS SDK for "Custom Terrain Texture" development. I have a link to the MS SDKs on my "Resources" page. You may find other areas of my website useful as well.GTOPO30 data for Canada is available at no cost. While not extremely detailed, it is usually significantly better than the default mesh. This might be a good place to start. FSTerrain (by Martin Wright) works well with this data, but does seem to limit you to processing only small subsets of the data at a time.Stevewww.fs-traveler.com
