Currently it is necessary to download DEMs in the
seamless format then to do some command line
conversions so that the application can then work with
the data. It would be very useful if FlightTrack were
able to just use the DEM data in the available format,
and with the header information (.hdr and .blw files)
that is provided. The command line steps to change
these files are well defined, so FlightTrack should be
able to just read in the data in that format.
If not, at least a menu item that says, "convert
DEM..." that can take the download format and do a
single conversion would make it easier to deal with new
maps.
