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 4.8 and OpenGL 4.0. 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. Each license is valid for at least one year, e.g., if you buy a license in 2022, you'll get the 2023 version for free. If you have any questions, please send us an email. Please also have a look at tutorials.

After 30 days, the non-activated version of planlauf/TERRAIN has still all the functionality except for the import of raw data, the generation of tile files and the export of *.plfmap, *.plf3dmm, *.plftrk and *.mbtiles files.
