Im having problems importing my .osm file into cityengine. It throws the error "import failed, data is located too far away". My .osm file of Rome, NY is in the spacial reference "+proj=longlat +datum=WGS84 +no_defs"  and my height map is in WGS84 UTM 18N (I believe Rome, NY is in the UTM zone 18N.) Even though both the height map and the osm file are in WGS84, i still obtain the "import failed" error. I have attached the .osm file. Any help would be appreciated. Thanx!

The datums appear the same (WGS84) but one appears to be a geographic coordinate system (ie units in decimal degrees) which the other is in a UTM projection... do note, WGS84 is not a coordinate system, although often assumed to be so
