Hi everyone, I try the tutorial of Gazebo for heightmap DEM. Some links are dead and the tutorial cannot continue. I look for an elevation map provider and the link with Gazebo and the GDAL library.

Is there someone with this issue too ?

A great tool to automate the entire process to get the DEM into Gazebo is this one:

Thanks I didn't receive a notification of your answer :( I'm looking for something more precise but I don't think it exist. I stock the tool to automate that 2 months ago, I didn't get time to test it :P.
