The existing one looks pretty good to me. Do you have some special improvements in mind?

Statto, f-ojac,

How is this data stored? Shapefiles? Where did it come from? Landsat manually traced? Could we use it to create custom scenery? What needs to be done to merge this landcover data into global landcover?

+1. There are really more important things to do if the goal is to improve this area.

Hello,

I was just looking around the flight sim community and found Flightgear in Google.
It is really amazing and happy to know that there is a Project Hong Kong with the great free filght sim software.

I am a Hongkonger and had experience to develop HK commercial product for FSX.
Wonder if I could help in this project. :)

Jacky

Hi Jacky,

You're more than welcome to join in! What are you interested in, or what did you specifically develop in said FSX product? (3D modeling, terrain generation, texturing, ...) Depending on that I could point to to some resources for FG.
