Thanks. I'll give it a shot. Rather excited about this development for 2016.

Yes, it's confusing because it doesn't follow coordinate convention.
But base definitions are like that, and the reasoning behind this is to flatten bases

Indeed. I initially had it reversed as well, but quickly ran into the mismatch while copy/pasting base coordinates.

Second that. Better leave it as it is.

Still playing with it. I do not see any surface flattening at the site on Pavonis Mons. However I do know that something is occurring. If I rotate the camera view to view under the surface, I do notice an effect much like a cone under the surface and reaching up to the surface but no surface flattening. Sorry I forgot to take a screen capture.

Is the one line sufficient in the .flt file or are more needed?
