Topography From Elevation Grid

There are two ways to create the topography from an elevation grid:

  • Right-click on the Topographies folder and select New Topography > Import Elevation Grid. Import the grid as described in Importing an Elevation Grid.
  • Import the grid using the Meshes folder and then right-click on the Topographies folder and select New Topography > From Surface.

Enter a name for the topography and click OK. A hyperlink to the elevation grid will appear in the Topographies folder under the defined topography.

Once the topography has been defined, additional height data can be added by right-clicking on the topography and selecting from the options available. See Adding Height Data to the Topography for more information.
