Hello Scott,It is really up to you. LOD 9 would interpolate some of the points, but there is more resolution.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/142748.gifThis is from an old project from a few years ago, where I wanted to see the difference. As you can tell, there is a lot more detail.It seems to me that we should be aiming for more realism, not accuracy. In any case, it is impossible to make totally accurate mesh, because the sampling techniques displace the elevation points, and those points were not necessarily the most adequate anyway.Anyway, nobody is going to measure the mesh to see how well it correlates with reality. People only want better detail, that is, rugged mountains, sloping valleys, etc.Best regards.Luis

Good points. My area is small (Galapagos Islands) so I can try both ways and see what it looks like. Your example displays really nice and makes your point! scott s..
