To improve performance, FSX updated with SP1 loads DEM files in threads and only
the closer terrain (about 10 NM from the point of view) is rendered in high
detail, while at far distances FSX shows up its default low resolution mesh,
if it is not available a multi-resolution one. This terrain mesh file was multilod compiled from 90m SRTM2 source data, reprocessed with 3DEM to remove voids and spikes, providing a 76.4m (LOD9) horizontal resolution topography intended
for use only in FSX updated with SP1.
It covers the Cape Verde, a group of islands in the North Atlantic Ocean, that consist of two small archipelagos, about 400 miles off the western coast of Senegal (Africa), including: Boa Vista, Brava, Maio, Mosteiros, Paul, Praia, Porto Novo, Ribeira Grande, Sal, Santa Catarina, Santa Cruz, Sao Domingos, Sao Filipe, Sao Miguel, Sao Nicolau, Sao Vicente and Tarrafal (Geographic coordinates: 16ºN/24ºW).
