Using dem files from UStopo

Post by PJPugliese » Wed Mar 13, 2013 12:00 pm

Is there a way to use the topo dem files from UStopo CDs in Geocart 3? Like richmond-e.dem. Thanks, Paul

Hello, Paul.

Geocart doesn’t read USGS DEM files directly. You would need to converted to a TIFF first using ArcGIS, GDAL, or some other suitable intermediary.

Everyone, please chime in if this is a strong need for you.

The files that were offered as an option with TOPOtoIMAGE are based on USGS dem files, but adapted for that program. Paul
