Any ideas on a simple tool to convert a DEM in ASC format to either RAW or USGS DEM format?
MacDEM is not compatible on my OSX macbook and MicroDem for PC doesn't seem to offer this translation.

GDAL should be able to do it:

Chris,

In my shop I would use Vertical Mapper to read the ascii file and save it back to a USGS DEM format.

If you run out of options drop me line (or .zip file) and I will attempt to convert it for you over the weekend (when the kids are sleeping)
At no cost of course.

Regards,
Chart
