- It can be used just for viewing terrain meshes or to see your tracks and waypoints projected on the terrain mesh. Personally, I'm using DG Terrain Viewer very enthusiastically, when I go out to geocaching or ride my bicycle, and use my GPS, when I'm back at home, the first thing I do is turn on the computer and see my track and waypoints over and between the mountains.
- Since any kind of vectorial information can be loaded on 3 different GPS formats, DGTV is being used for civil engineering purposes such as Hydraulics and terrain slope analysis in cyties. Flight Simulator Scenery Designers are using it to preview the SRTM tiles before converting them into BGL.
- DGTV is reported to be used all around the world: Mountain trackers on the Philippines and Indonesia, BTT riders from the French Alps, 4x4 riders from Morroco, Saudi Arabia and New Mexico, are using it enthusiastically, both to post-view their rides and to plan them, after drawing possible tracks over a map using GPS programs such as GPSu or GPSTM, they use DGTV to plot all the tracks on 3D, analyse them projected across the mountains and after that, choose the most thrilling one.
- Most of the people are using DG Terrain Viewer every time they take a long ride around the country, the first thing they do when arrive home is to download the Data from the GPS receiver and plot it over the terrain mesh with DGTV.
- The New Video Sequence Feature, that is still experimental, also led DGTV to be used to illustrate TV programs such as Off-Road Racing. It is also being used by the military to show on 3D the animated tracks of Experimental Flights, Ground Attack paths and Air-to-Air interception. Rocket Enthusiasts are plotting near parabolic tracks that go up to 5km altitude.
NOTE: see links on the left to download this elevation data. All the needed converters are supplied along with DGTV on the DGTV zipfile
