Hello, I have been trying to import a digital elevation model for a terrain in gazebo. I have read about certain softwares such as QGIS to use but I could not figure out which format of DEM is compatible with gazebo. Can anyone please help me point out in the right direction about how to create a custom DEM for gazebo world. Thank you

If you look at the example : /usr/share/gazebo-11/worlds/ the dem it uses is actually a geotif.

Geotiff: /usr/share/gazebo-11/media/dem/volcano.tif

And size is 129x129

Yea I have already checked it. In that tutorial they used .dem format and the map that I need is available in TIFF format. I know that gazebo can work with raster format but I am not sure whether TIFF belongs to raster family. and also in that tutorial in visual, they have added few texture elements which i don't have for the map I have downloaded and I am not sure whether my model can work with without that particular texture elements inside the visual element. can you help me clear this out ?
