When having a GlobalMapper project defined to 16384x16384 meter the exported GeoTif returns as 20000meters in CityEngine. Where does the different scale come from ? Have been using GM for years and haven't had any issues with the units between software before (Maya,Houdini etc) 

Importing the CityEngine fbx scene file into Houdini also states the faulty scale.

Forcing scale to be 16k of the terrain in CityEngine the OSM data is then not matching but matches the 20km size instead.

Anyone know what is causing this scale differences. 

Cheers J

I also noticed the scale issues being present if you download an selected extent (16384) from inside of CE. When the download is complete the actual scale of the Terrain now displays as 12280.996m in the CE scene. 

So something seem to be changed from the actual set region scale to what you actually get.
