#Real-Life #Experimental Finland Exclusive Drag and Drop
Adds 3D terrain for 186 airports / flightplaces / emergency landing places / helicopter landing areas (:P) in Finland.Made specifically to get realistic 3D runways.

This is raw data, directly from NLS elevation models. Thus it is meant to be used primarily with other additions/modifications that build on this file, as the source data omits human made objets such as bridges over taxiway underpasses. The source data also has errors that propagate from incorrect laser scanning data.List of scenery builders, whose work uses this as a baseline, will appear here, once their work goes online.

Use my other mod "DEM for Finland" and bLindye's "Finland Lake Fix",
if you wish that airport areas blend to the surrounding terrain seamlessly (most of the time).Uses priority 20 to override default airport areas without seaming. So if you want to build something that uses this as a baseline, use at least priority 21 if you do terraforming or additional heightmaps over this one.

Release notes:
V1.2
-Added Kauhava emergency landing place
-Final version to be delivered separately, possible future relases will come only embedded in "DEM for Finland"
V1.1
-Added 11 emergency landing places (Alavus, Lusi, Jokioinen, Niinisalo, Virttaa, Pudasjärvi, Ranua, Kestilä, Vuojärvi, Tervo, Vieremä)
-Added coverage for city of Helsinki
-Data aligned to bing maps tiles, better accuracy on extreme elevation variations, less aliasing.
-Only one version, matches bing maps level 14, so ground resolution varies from 5 meters in southern Finland to 4 at northern parts.
-Priority reduced to 20. Cant go much below that, because underlying stock airport areas cause elevation errors to tile seams.

    Thanks for your work, but could you please try to fix the GPS coordinates for the scenery (here on this webpage)? On the scenery map, it shows up north of Philadelphia now.

    I will once the mod is actually complete... What's the point of releasing a mod that is "I need to fix this this this this this this and this as well, before this mod is useful in any way

    Go to ski some, it will take the edge off the pain.

    Now that we got that out of the way, I do apologize for all the bugs in this version and for the lack of quality control. New version will be released.

    I think you don't have to apologize, you do a free job, you don't ask for money, you contribute to the community, my question is if people who demand something, really do something for the community.......
