I am brand new to Infrastructure Modeler and I was just curious what the best source for information such as terrain data that can be imported into AIM.

Awesome!  Thanks!


One other question.  When you are setting up a new model and the dialog box opens up where you can define the city extents...  How do you go about doing that?  I assume it's asking for the GPS points for the corners of the area you want, but I'm not sure exactly what order to put those in as and what format to use.

You can also change and interactively define the city extend afterwards once you have loaded data. Manage -> Model Settings -> Extent

The option in the new dialog is for users dealing with huge datasets but just needing a small area so they do not have to create a huge model first.

When I import shape files all I get is a brown image in the drawing with no detail.  I've tried several different shape files from several different sites and keep getting the same thing.  Any ideas?
