Hi everybody,

so far I did not manage to create a real world model for Bridge Command. But I understand that a heightmap file is required.
I found a service on GitHub where you can get heightmaps from the entire world:

https://tangrams.github.io/heightmapper/

On Github there are also some Python libraries that allow to get the areas by script. I tested it by taking a screenshot from the web browser output for some islands. I was able to visualize it in a GIS renderer called "Geomorph" (Freeware). The results look quite promising.

I thought I should share this here.    (What is the English translation of  "Klugscheißer"  ;D)

Best regards
bona
