The instructions on the first post don't seem to be working for me, I installed the SRTM thingy for Google Earth and nothing shows up. I'm using Google Earth Pro 7.1 on Windows 10 64-bit
Honestly though it'd be a hell of a lot easier if I could just find a nice big heightmap of Canada (2048x2048 and bigger) that includes the major rivers and waterbodies like lakes. I want to make a HUGE Canada scenario so that people like me can have fun trying to cover the expanses of Canada with roads and rails. I want a huge map so I can have the space to place most of the major towns and cities as well as space for industries.
If someone could help me get the data for all of Canada to make my own heightmap, or if someone could just generate a map for the entirety of Canada, either would be great (though the latter would be better since I have no idea what I'm doing with DEM and satellite stuff)
EDIT : It'd be nice if I could get this kinda detail for Canada's waterways as seen in this map http://kurld.com/images/canada-map/canada-map-04.jpg
I imagine that kinda detail may require a height map around 4096x4096.
