Title: Data for DEM2TOPO
Post by: Tsnake on September 03, 2008, 08:54:01 AM
I have been downloading the dem data for Illinois.  I am downloading the GeoTIFF format to use with GPSMapEdit.  When I receive the zip file, it containes the .tif file plus .aux, .prj, .ftf all with the same number.  Plus there is a lot of files for METADATA.  Do I need any of these besides the .tif to get DEM2TOPO to run correctly?

I don't think you need any of the other files.  I have never removed them; I just open the tif file and once I process the contours I delete all the files.
