I have it John but I must admit I haven't played with it much. It gives a better appreciation of the terrain.

Here's one I quickly knocked up of Jacksons crossing area. The map can be spun around in various planes within the program for a better appreciation.

click map for a bigger pic...I hope.... lol

Thanks

The latest versions of OziExplorer have a direct link on their menu, to download the SRTM 3 sec for the map you are viewing.

Depending what you use it for, and the quality of your maps and Height Data, as to how good it will be for you........I use high resolution aerial photographs (<1m) with 1:5000 DEM data (1 sec or better) of selected areas to produce some excellent 3D models for Search and Rescue purposes :-) These, however, are not free, however are worth it. The free data is not too bad, just don't expect the best look in very hilly areas.

It really depends on the Data available...........

elevation profiles between two points using the height data is interesting as well.

This profile between Ballarat and Geelong

download the free version from the Ozi explorer web page.. it does almost everything the purchased one does except limit the size of the area you can 3D as well as no moving map.. good way to try it out.. I bought it after all for the $30. It's a bit of a gimmick..no reall practical benefit..
You can get the height data from the Ozi explorer web page (through links) a bit complicated to set up but I manageda fter a bt of mucking around..

Give it a go if for nothing else than curiosity

Have got and found it to be really interesting - altough I haven't yet found a practical use for it.

If you buy one of the RASTER 50K (Kimberley or S/W WA) sets avaiable through the shop you will find they also come with digital elevation data which can be used with OziExplorer 3D. I've used it to check out some interesting places in WA - such as Mount ManyPeaks, Cape Le Grand, Mount Lindsay.

I imagine the Kimberley set would also work good.
