    3535 * For the Styria region of Austria, 10m resolution data licensed as CC-BY-3.0-AT can be downloaded from: http://data.steiermark.at/cms/beitrag/12014326/97428847/
     36 (Currently you can't directly convert this for use by aven though).

    39 Currently Aven expects the terrain data to be in a ZIP file (which is how you'll usually download it, so just don't try to unzip it yourself).
     40Aven 1.2.18 and 1.2.19 expect the terrain data to be in a ZIP file (which is how you'll usually download it, so just don't try to unzip it yourself).

    4142Inside the ZIP file, the following are currently supported:
     
    4344 * An STRM `.hgt` file (which is the format Viewfinder Panoramas provides).
    4445 * An ESRI `.bil` file and associated metadata files (which is one of the smaller options for downloading SRTM and ASTER data from Earth Explorer).
     46
     47Aven 1.2.20 adds support for the same formats, but with the files directly on disk.  You will probably find this useful on Windows, where the wxWidgets zip file reading code always seemd to fail to read data with "generic read error".
     48
     49The terrain data currently needs to be in WGS84 lat/long.

    4651If you have data in a different format, then [http://www.gdal.org/ GDAL] may be useful for converting it.
