Hi guys,

I've busted my skull over this one for the past 2 weeks, left it then come back to bang my ahead against it all over again.

I just don't get why I can't convert this dem map into a polygon mesh that is in similar to detail of the displacement render:

Instead of getting the result I want, this nurbs plane...

...comes out looking like this staccato mess of a mesh:

I've resigned myself to the reality that I'm in need of some major obiwankenobi-help!

If anyone could help me to figure out what I'm doing wrong, I would be truly thankful. I originally thought it was because of a lo-res map as it shoud clearly be easier than this so I'm adamant it is a user-side error.

I've uploaded the test file and tiff file for anyone able to put me back on the right path:

I appreciate any help I can get.
