Hello All!
well, i decided to restart my work on this project, this time using the brasil-2014 shapefiles from IBGE. I know it's still a long way to go and i still have to learn some of the tools i need, but i think i can make a little progress by now
if someone has some ability with gis, wed, taxidraw and terragear and wants to help, just reply here.

That's how the shapefiles look so far

I plan to also use OSM data in this project, and also the latest airports from the Xplane Gateway

Really nice, there're people that often fly in Brazil in FG, getting some type of terrain updates, OSM data and xplane airports we can get a whole new better experience and realism

This looks really good. In case you need help with terragear or so, I have created a few sceneries with it, so if you want you can ask ;) Good luck!

Guys, i'm a bit worried about the resolution of the shapefiles i have. Would like to hear the opinion of more experienced developers.
This is the area of Rio de Janeiro and Guanabara bay. what do you think?

This is the same area on OSM
https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=11/-22.8591/-43.1831&layers=H

Also, i have the impression that more important cities and populous areas are a bit more detailed than the other areas but i still cannot confirm it.

so, I look forwarrd for comments. Sorry for my slow development, i've been busy with work and college things

Hello, guys!
Sorry for my abscence, i've been very busy.
so, i'm slowly restarting this project. I've just downloaded the entire set of data for Brazil from OSM. It's a crazy amount of data! :o

Again, i don't have much knowledge on scenery generating, so any help is welcome! If you want to help, just PM me.
