Surface Options dialog box


 When choosing to also create a surface from a set of points that have just been imported, the user has the following options:



Import triangulation object (TIN):  Select this option to create a surface from the set of points, using the triangulation algorithm.



Import surface contours:  Enable this option if you want to create contours from your data set. Two sets of contour lines will be generated, each one represented by different colour (that can be defined by the user). The following attributes can be specified:

Base elevation:  The altitude of the lowest contour line

Minor Interval:    The difference in altitude between two consecutive minor contours

Major Interval:    The difference in altitude between two consecutive major contours


You can also select specific layers on which the major and minor intervals will be created, or let Plex.Earth assign them automatically.
