We’ve previously seen that our Air Safaris Scenic flight was close to the advertised flight path. To add some 3D information I’ve found a 8m DEM.

I’ve used the QuantumGIS 2threejs plugin to show the side view – both the flight and terrain data are now in three dimensions.

Now that we have a DEM, we can drape any imagery over the top.
