Download / Purchase


planlauf/TERRAIN is designed for Windows 7/8/10 desktop and tablet PCs. It is powerful, lightweight and will work on almost any device with .NET Framework 4.5 and OpenGL 4.0 (system requirements). You can try the full version 30 days for free without any registration! If you're happy with planlauf/TERRAIN, you can purchase a license key and simply activate your trial version.

If you have any questions, please send us an email. Please also have a look at the Quick Start and the Video Tutorial.

After 30 days, the non-activated version of planlauf/TERRAIN has still all the functionality except for the import of raw data and the generation of tile files. You can always use our fully-automated Mesh decimation service to get customized tile files for selected regions at a reasonable price.
