zip.png Cat Island LandXML Strawman Design HOT

(0 votes)

Download

This file when unzipped should have an xml extension.  With the LandXML Import Tool in the CARET-Toolbox open this file.  Be sure to set the working spatial reference to Mississippi State Plane East FT NAD83 as the coordinate system is not stored in this file. You may need to reference the CARET-Toolbox User's Guide when using this tool. But you want to build the polyline DTM and then build a raster surface from the DTM with the tool. The left image is the polyline DTM and the right image is the raster surface draped over the DTM.
