Raimondo Taburet, owner and webmaster of FSfreeware.com and famous in the Flight Simulator world for his many terrain mesh products, has now started to release a new series of European terrain mesh for FS2002 and FS2004, based on the SRTM data from NIMA/NASA. The mesh is of a 76.4 meter resolution, which makes it a lot more detailed than the default mesh provided by Microsoft for this region.

The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) obtained elevation data on a near-global scale to generate the most complete high-resolution digital topographic database of Earth. SRTM consisted of a specially modified radar system that flew onboard the Space Shuttle Endeavour during an 11-day mission in February of 2000. SRTM is an international project spearheaded by the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Raimondo's new series is called SRTM Terrain Environment (STE) and will include all of the European countries. It is a very priceworthy product, at Euros 8.99 per country, allowing most flightsimmers to obtain all of Europe for a reasonable price.

After Europe Raimondo will continue his series moving east, covering all of Eurasia by the time he is finished.
