FSX AsterMesh Alaska 30 m - Version 1

Astermesh is a new Terrain Mesh scenery for the Flight simulator - extracted from the Asterdem Version 1. We have reworked - compiled this new set of elevation data models for the flight simulator with the goal to achieve the best results as possible after some editing on some of the original dem was applyed as Aster dem is a brand new product - This is the beginning of a new era for the flight simulator which will surely change the shape of its terrains in the future.

This first package of AsterMesh covers Alaska - users of this mesh will it enjoy a much deeper flight simulation experience comparing to srtm based meshes !

"ASTER GDEM is a product of METI and NASA."

NASA OFFICIAL Asterdem V1 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Astermesh's accuracy estimates were 20 meters at 95% confidence
for vertical data, and 30 meters at 95% confidence for horizontal data."

NASA and Japan released a new digital topographic map of Earth that covers more of our planet than ever before. The map was produced with detailed measurements from NASA’s Terra spacecraft.

The new global digital elevation model of Earth was created from nearly 1.3 million individual stereo-pair images collected by the Japanese Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer, or Aster, instrument aboard Terra. NASA and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, known as METI, developed the data set.

“This is the most complete, consistent global digital elevation data yet made available to the world,” said Woody Turner, Aster program scientist at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “This unique global set of data will serve users and researchers from a wide array of disciplines that need elevation and terrain information.”

According to Mike Abrams, Aster science team leader at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., the new topographic information will be of value throughout the Earth sciences and has many practical applications. “Aster’s accurate topographic data will be used for engineering, energy exploration, conserving natural resources, environmental management, public works design, firefighting, recreation, geology and city planning, to name just a few areas,” Abrams said.

Previously, the most complete topographic set of data publicly available was from NASA’s Shuttle Radar Topography Mission. That mission mapped 80 percent of Earth’s landmass, between 60 degrees north latitude and 57 degrees south. The new Aster data expand coverage to 99 percent, from 83 degrees north latitude and 83 degrees south. Each elevation measurement point in the new data is 30 meters (98 feet) apart.

“The Aster data fill in many of the voids in the shuttle mission’s data, such as in very steep terrains and in some deserts,” said Michael Kobrick, Shuttle Radar Topography Mission project scientist at JPL. “NASA is working to combine the Aster data with that of the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission and other sources to produce an even better global topographic map.”

NASA and METI are jointly contributing the Aster topographic data to the Group on Earth Observations, an international partnership headquartered at the World Meteorological Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, for use in its Global Earth Observation System of Systems. This “system of systems” is a collaborative, international effort to share and integrate Earth observation data from many different instruments and systems to help monitor and forecast global environmental changes.
 

Aster is one of five Earth-observing instruments launched on Terra in December 1999. Aster acquires images from the visible to the thermal infrared wavelength region, with spatial resolutions ranging from about 15 to 90 meters (50 to 300 feet). A joint science team from the U.S. and Japan validates and calibrates the instrument and data products.

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - WASHINGTON LANDMARKS MSFS
andrea
ottimo prodotto, molto bello, modificata quasi l'intera città e aeroporti, tanti punti di riferimento da visitare.
NEMETH DESIGNS - AEROLITE 103 MSFS
Frank
Nice model but something is wrong with the weight calculation. With the normal weights it's for me total unstable to fly. After reducing the weight of the pilot to 8 lbs ;) the aircraft flies stable and is also easy to control. So it’s fun to fly. An own pilot model would be nice. And a revision of the motor sound and the brake noise would be great. At the moment i giving the aerolite 3 stars.
JUSTSIM - EUROAIRPORT BASEL MULHOUSE FREIBURG MSFS
Moussa
Another very nice airport by the developer. Nice gates, textures are crisp and clean, terminal is alive. Nice job!
FSDREAMTEAM - ZURICH AIRPORT MSFS
Moussa
Very nice airport for the price. Likely worth more based on the other airports here...Very detailed, nice texture. Definitely worth it. Another place to stop around the alps.

Great spot to start a Puerto Rico or longer Caribbean tour. Scenery has good performance, good texture quality, and nice buildings.
INDIAFOXTECHO - LONG EZ - MSFS
James
I genuinely want to give this aircraft more stars but in its current state, it feels more like a proof of concept than a complete experience. Comparing it to the payware rendition of this aircraft on the X-Plane store, this one feels very limited. I'd love this to be fitted with a landing light and a much better cockpit light. The current cockpit light bleeds onto the left canard and is extremely bright to the point of being unusable during flight. While I realize the intention of this aircraft is mostly VFR, the Long-EZ was famed for its use in the "Around the world in 80 nights" tour which undoubtedly saw it sporting equipment for night flight. I trust this developer to continue to improve this aircraft, and they have already come a long way in doing so. I suspect the next update will bump it up to 4 stars at least.
INFORMATICA AZ - EUROFIGHTER TYPHOON MSFS

I'm hoping this addon becomes worthwhile in the future - from what I can see from the images, the 3D model looks good, but the external and cockpit textures are amateurish, at best. It's using what appears to be all the instruments/avi-
onics from the default A320, which might be acceptable - for a VERY short while. Not sure why "thrust reversers" are listed as a feature as the IRL Typhoon does not have them. All in all, while I'd really like to support this new Dev, esp since it's a .mil aircraft, the value for money simply isn't where it needs to be. Bring the price WAY down while you fix the issues and update the work.

The only thing holding me back from 5 stars is the price. For such a simple aircraft, I feel it's a bit too expensive. That said, this aircraft is a dream to fly and has quickly become my go-to for sight-seeing any time I fly. The visual modeling is great, the sound is good, and it handles well. I do wish there was an option to model the pilot's arms/legs as looking forward/down and not seeing them does break the immersion. I'd also love to have a bit more to do in the "cockpit" as it were, maybe a simple GPS strapped to one one side of the frame which would help when navigating unfamiliar terrain, but I realize the SDK is fairly limited right now. It'd also be nice to have to maintain the engine or something just to justify the price a bit more, but that may also be impossible currently.

Very beautiful scenery! if you like Alaska panorama and the "life below zero" tv series you must have it if you don't like it, you must have it anyway
WING42 - BLÉRIOT XI MSFS
Kevin
Bought it on the Wings42 Website: Awe-
some Aircraft that gives you insight to the early days if flying. The Model and Textures are superior with lots of Details. The Flightmodel feels really nice to handle and quite tricky due to the low power this aircraft has. I really like that it comes with 3 Versions and loads of Liveries. I can definitely recommend it to people that love old airplanes
