Description

The Open Terrain dialogue does not specify supported terrain file formats. I was also unable to find this information in the manual.

By trial and error I figured out that hgt is supported. Is that currently the only supported file format?

The formats currently supported are documented here for now:

https://trac.survex.com/wiki/TerrainData#Formats

It's not currently in the manual so we can easily update it between releases, though it isn't evolving as rapidly as it was.

We'll probably use GDAL (http://www.gdal.org/) to do the reading eventually, which should then mean we support almost any format.

Thanks. Support for GeoTiff? would be very handy.
