Most major lakes in Tanzania reworked from SRTM Water Body Data (SWBD) and altitude adjusted to fit in SRTM-based mesh sceneries. By Chris Butenschoen.

There are quite a few mesh sceneries out there, that are based on data from Nasa's Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM), producing very detailed landscape models in FS. The downside of this approach is, that things like airports and an lakes keep their original elevation. In east africa this leads to the phenomenon that most lakes appear as elevated pools.

For this project most of Tanzanias lakes were reworked from SRTM Water Body Data, to produce exact coastlines and adjusted to real world elevations.

This file was made for my personal flying pleasure. So it's quite possible, that it contains errors in areas, that i don't frequent in FSX.I take no responsibility for any damage you cause by using this file. Especially bathing in East African lakes is not advisable, as almost all are inhabited by parasites.


Simply drop the bgl-file in any active scenery-folder or create a new folder and activate as usual.

The archive has 4 files and directories contained within it.
