 Important Note: Global Mapper is commercial software which costs like $500, **you cannot make ArmA 3 terrain of decent size with the TRIAL version.** If you do not have full / commercial version of global mapper I suggest you read Ross's QGIS real world data tutorial instead, QGIS is a free open source software. Important Note: Global Mapper is commercial software which costs like $500, **you cannot make ArmA 3 terrain of decent size with the TRIAL version.** If you do not have full / commercial version of global mapper I suggest you read Ross's QGIS real world data tutorial instead, QGIS is a free open source software.

 Just a small side note, until these PMC Editing Wiki tutorials, there was no **comprehensive step by step** tutorial sets how to make real world data terrains, few guys had global mapper / qgis tutorials but none were complete tutorials from having nothing to getting terrain in-game. Just a small side note, until these PMC Editing Wiki tutorials, there was no **comprehensive step by step** tutorial sets how to make real world data terrains, few guys had global mapper / qgis tutorials but none were complete tutorials from having nothing to getting terrain in-game.
