Today we have released a new video in the Videos Section that shows the Course Forge Course Converter being used to import a section of the world from Bing MapsToday we have released a new video in the Videos Section that shows the Course Forge Course Converter being used to import a section of the world from Bing Maps into Course Forge as a terrain. This feature will make it easy for anyone to browse to their desired golf course in the world and import whatever terrain data Bing have available and import it as a heightmap and perfectly aligned overhead view.
Simply run course converter and navigate to the Create from Maps tab and then zoom in to any place in the world using the map based interface. Once you have identified the part of the world to import click the Generate button and wait for it to download the data. If selected at the end of the process you will be prompted to save a jpg file which is the image, the XYZ file which is your ascii grid and a heightmap file.
The heightmap file and jpg can then be imported directly into Unity and Course Forge.
