Hi Yiannis,looks like the data are in UTM projection. You should first convert it to Geographic / WGS84 projection with ArcDegrees as units (Tools > Configure > Projection) and then export as BIL. Then load the BIL, go into Export Raster > Export BIL and use the information in the Sample Spacing and Export Bounds > Global Projection to build you inf (or, alternatively, use the data directly from the .hdr file).Make sure that you know about the limitation that FS will only display mesh if the data completely fills the corresponding LOD sections. See http://www.fs-traveler.com/tips-d.shtml . When dealing with smaller areas it's often necessary to either include mesh from other sources around the edges or increase the LOD level.Good luck!Cheers, Holger
