FSX AsterMesh Europe 30 m

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. 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 cover Europe - to enjoy ! We are very very pleased with the results achieved and surely all users of this mesh will it enjoy as it offer a much deeper flight simulation experience comparing to now older 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.

SIMULACIÓN EXTREMA - UHMP PEVEK EXTREME RUSSIAN AIRPORT MSFS
Carlos
Loved this scenery. Very remote location. Nicely done, great frames and a very particular setting.
REDWING SIM - GENEVE-COINTRIN AIRPORT - LSGG MSFS
Rémi
Extreme loyalty, fluidity and optimization! -
Lack more the reconstruction of the interior of the main terminal, excellent job!
GODZONE VF - REAL NEW ZEALAND NZCH/CHRISTCHURCH P3D
Reydon
Great Scenery! An excellent airport and a very worthy addition for New Zealand flying.
ISLAND CREATIONS - FUERTEVENTURA AERIAL IMAGERY MSFS
Paul
Excellent product! Fuerteventura is tranformed in certain areas, especially along the coast near Corralejo, where the downtown areas are crisp and are a joy to fly over. There is an overall sense of coherency with this product, with no deviation in color and hue. And the absence of green roads makes this add-on worth the price alone. With that said, there are areas where the resolution should be higher, but overall it's an excellent add-on and improves the scenery considerably. The autogen objects also populate nicely on the terrain, and the default digital elevation model just seems to conform better with this ortho. Based on my experience with this product, I'll be purchasing the Lanzarote product because I love flying over the Canary Islands. Great work, Island Creations! Please offer a new Ortho for La Palma!
FLYTAMPA - LASVEGAS MSFS
Jeremy
I love flying in and out of this airport. Definitely one of my favorites in the entire sim. Bought it from their store when it first came out. One thing they should focus on is optimizing the airport's performance more maybe easy up on the animated terminals in a sim that is single threaded limited and surrounded with photogrammetry. The city area runs flawless and looks great at night.

Nice addition to the PMDG 777. It was worth the wait for sure.
SOUTH OAK CO - LANAI HAWAII MSFS
Chuck
I love flying between airports in the Hawaiian islands so I was thrilled to see another nicely modeled Hawaii airport for MSFS! The only knock I have on this airport is that none of the airport terminal interiors are modeled. However, there are some static people and animated passengers outside the buildings to add some life to the airport area. There's also plenty of cars in the parking areas as well as baggage carts and other items lying around which give the airport that used look and feel. The PBR textures and materials are nicely done. The attention to detail such as signs, fuel tanks, etc. adds to the immersion. All this detail and no noticeable hit to my framerates is a bonus! Well done!

The scenery is very good, I really liked it so the 5 stars are well deserved.

Nice scenery to enjoy the caribbean, thanks to the developer to bring this good quality scenery to the flight sim community.
AVIAJAM - NIZHNY NOVGOROD LANDMARKS MSFS
Evgeny
Better than nothing, but still far from good. Only one of two Bor bridges is changed. The stadium looks like a cheap plastic toy. Chkalov stairs still contain some strange buildings. I understand that it costs only 5 euros, but I'd pay 3-4 times more for a good landmarks (at least all the bridges) and UWGG scenery if it existed. Это лучше, чем ничего, но оставляет желать лучшего. Борский мост сделан лишь на половину, стадион выглядит как дешевая пластиковая игрушка, на Чкаловской лестнице всё ещё растут какие-то здания. За 5 евро пойдёт за неимением лучшего, но я бы с радостью заплатил в 3-4 раза больше за качественный продукт, если бы он был.
