If one of the parameter is not competed, your contribution is therefore not usable which would be a shame. Thank you!

what i dont understand is when i download a tile to my custom scenery folder there is no elevation data so everything looks flat in some places especially the airport  the parked cars look 2d

but what i have also noticed is that elevation data does get produced but it is sent to the c drive for some reason 

so here are my two questions do i move the contents of the temp file produced by ortho to the custom scenery folder in my D drive or do i leave it as is?

i tried to get elevation data from viewfindpano website but when i try to import dem file it wont let me select all in rar file so i dont know what to choose.

do i use the downloaded dem file if so which htg for that region ?,if so which one?

or do i use the ortho elevation data if so where do i place the elevation data folder?or do i leave it as is?

I'm just a newbie in ortho4xp but I have already been watching some tutorials and reading a lot to start developing some tiles. I say that first because I don't know if my answer is going to be stupid. I found this web noted in a youtube video and maybe is what your are looking for: http://www.viewfinderpanoramas.org/Coverage map viewfinderpanoramas_org3.htm

All China. It contains 1400 GB of ortho. 

Go ahead and grab some. Here's the BT seed.

BT seed file: 1.OrthoChina_Project_Download_v1.0.torrent

You can selectively download the region you need in this index picture.

Or you can go to the author's site directly.

https://cloud.igac.club:1032/

It's recommended to download it from bittorrent seed using qTorrent because the more people download it, the quicker it will be.

If I can make a contribution for Tanzania. I noticed that Arc at ZL17 is the best source for the inland parts. From Kilimanjaro down to the Ruvuma River, Arc is very good with very few clouds. Same deal with the Western Lakes and Central Tanzania, Arc looks wonderful and very detailed.

The trouble comes when you reach the coast. From Tanga to Mtwara, Arc and the other providers are subpar and showcase many clouds and patches of different textures. The only "acceptable" provider in that case is EOX. It doesn't have any clouds, but the resolution is not very good. EOX does have nice colours though, especially the very vibrant desert red. I used ZL17 as well.

I haven't tested other zoom levels, but I assume they will be just as good.

I assume these facts to also be true for Kenya as I also have Arc tiles for Nairobi. Maybe somebody else can confirm that Arc is the best source for Kenya as well (or not). I hope this will help!

@fermonroA bit late, but here's an explanation for NO2 provider.  Should be similar for Eniro.  If unsure, check Kitten/Magnus´first post on this thread.
