Interesting, thanks for all info above.
I used GE couple of times few years back and captured images from portions of the map out to graphics, stiched them, then converted to greyscale, then brought greyscale into modelling tool, so must have a good look at this micordem.
I think Max can read DEM but haven't taken time to see how well.
USG site used to have DEM but have not visited in ages and problem was no easy tools to get that base data (corrected, valid corrected data used to be a real problem otherwise there were holes and messed up meshes resulting) into things and its resolution was still in the km which is only useful for expansive areas, presume in more detail these days.
