Haven't forgotten about this, but it may take me a while to hear back/look into details more. I think we both have others things to do, so we're not stuck, but we'd both like to see this get made.
Yea it's not an urgent, have to figure this out today thing, but I would like to start making meaningful progress at some point soon. If you can give me some basic guidance on what you're going to try to figure out and/or what might be a good starting point for me to attempt to help with that, I can definitely do my best to assist so it's not all on you. Just let me know.
chadgolf Wanting to get this moving in the right direction. If I tried to figure out any scaling-type issues, what would I need to confirm - the height units and foot/meter measures, based on your previous post, would be 2 things I think. What else can I do to determine if this is just something I need to work around in the designer, or to finally get it lined up properly? Thanks as always.
1) It's a little bit complicated, but I'll try to find the initial flight specifications for you. That will let us know if the data was published incorrectly. Should tell us the horizontal unit, vertical unit, and what coordinate system the flight data intended to publish in.
2) The 2nd thing we'll need to look at is how much of the course is on huge slopes or mountains. If holes have a ton of vertical distance, the sat images from OSM may not always line up. This is most obvious for things like trees, where you can see the top of trees blocking and covering up the image. You may need to compromise and find the map that is the most "top down" instead of highest resolution. Trees will look circular in these views.
3) The final thing to check is, without OSM splines, do the playing surfaces, distances, and relative sizes seem to be working out. I know there were quite a few greens that don't seem playable with slow and soft green settings. As far as I can tell, the data matches google earth in all dimensions, but since we're doing the same thing as them - no guarantee that they didn't make mistakes as well.
I'll do #1 right now. I'll leave #2 and #3 to you. Our initial goal is to see if OSM or the lidar looks to be the troublemaker.

Ok, I've reached the point here where I'm going to throw this out - if there's anyone who would like to help/assist/collaborate on Pasa, please reach out. In a nutshell, it's going to take many, many hours to line up everything, and I anticipate that's something that will mostly have to be done "by hand" in the designer. It's just a huge project that I'm not sure I can tackle on my own, at least not anytime soon, but I also want this course - done right, which is important to me - in the game.
So, if there's anyone who thinks they'd like to get involved in some form or fashion, please let me know.
alejandroacantilado: the PGA is doing a great job of setup, and I think the USGA could really learn from them. The bunkers, the decision to not cut the greens when the wind is up. They have to remember that when they go back to Shinnecock in a few years...

alejandroacantilado: man, too bad Hanse couldn't do anything about those cart paths.
