RAMMS needs a digital elevation model DEM as required input. The DEM needs to be in ASCII format and cannot contain commas.

Forest information is optional but important for realistic avalanche simulations in forested terrain. The forest information can be imported from a shapefile or as ASCII data (0 = no forest, 1 = forest).

To achieve nice 3D visualization of the data we recommend to use topographic maps and aerial- or satellite-imagery. These datasets need to be in tif format and they need to be accompanied by a world file (.tfw) .
