Setting Elevation for GIS Objects and Images

You can set the elevation for GIS objects and images by:

  • Using a fixed elevation
  • Using the elevation data from one of the object’s attributes
  • Using the elevation data from a surface in the project

The options available depend upon the type of object.

Fixed Elevation From Attribute From Surface
GIS lines X X X
GIS points X X X
2D grids X - X
GIS lines drawn in Leapfrog Geo X - -
GIS lines extracted from polylines X - X
Images X - -

To set the elevation for a GIS object or an image, right-click on it in the project tree and select Set Elevation. The Set Elevation window will appear, displaying the available options. Select the option required and click OK.
