Hi all developer team;
I have a question about plugging my own elevation to WWJ. I surveyed this forum before. I see some approaches on that issue. However, I cannot meet efficient and real solution.
Firstly, I have a elevation file in DTED, DEM, JP2 or TIF formats. After my research in forum, I've decided to create tiles of my elevation file. I perform this operation with Global Mapper 9 at 13 level detail and saving with .jpg extension. The folder name is formed like this: 0->0364->0364_0588.jpg, 1->0728->0728_1177.jpg bla bla.. I've read tiling system of WW. It creates tiles with row and column numbers (e.g 0_8.dds). But I am not sure for my tiling. How can I integrate my own tiles to the WWJ. Is it sufficient to see my own elevation in WW application? And also if my tiling way is wrong, how can i correct it?
Then, because of my failure in tiling, I tried something about .bil files. I can convert my elevation file to the .bil files in 150x150 resolution with Global Mapper 9 too. That program also create a xml file for my elevation file. I looked at geodan's walktrough example. This example is developed for .net version of WW. But I can't find Earth subfolder under Config folder in WWJ source which I will put xml file which Global Mapper creates. So I don't understand how i integrate elevations from my bil file to the WWJ. Anybody know it?
My last question: for plugging my own elevation from my elevation file in WWJ, what is the way to follow? Is it possible to implement it? My sayings in above are logical? I am very new in WW. But answers of these questions is vital for me since using them in my Senior Project and also time is limited..
Thanks for advance..
