[osg-users] LOD levels in Terrain generation.

Hi Om,
just a simple answer and some more questions because I'm not one of
the VirtualPlanetBuilder/osgDEM coders.

The topmost LOD is the one with the worst resolution (only one tile).
The deepest LOD is the one with the best resolution.
When osgDEM arrives at the resolution of the original data it stops
since doing more levels of detail is ridiculous.

One question for me is how big is LOD 1 ???
A tile of size 512x512 pixel ??
Is it possible to reduce the LOD count while preserving that the
highest LOD is the original resolution??? Meaning, I want to reach my
original resolution no matter what I definet as LOD count.
