I am very new to CityEngine and I am trying to do some visual analysis of a part of Newcastle for my dissertation. However, I cannot figure out how to import height data to create a terrain- the height dataset I currently have is a 5 metre DTM downloaded from DigiMap. I cannot figure out how to copy this to my workspace.
Am I using the wrong kind of data?
If so, what do I need to download and where from?
Welcome to the CityEngine community!
Your approach with the 5m DTM seems to be feasible.
Here is a tutorial that explains the terrain import workflow:
Detailed information on terrain layers is given in the CityEngine help:
