Surface Area-Volume Tool

The Surface Area-Volume Tool is a tool that is used to calculate planar and 3D surface areas and volumes for tin, terrain, or raster surfaces.  Allowable raster formats are ESRI GRID, TIFF, FGDBR, SDR, and IMAGINE IMAGE.  Additionally, minimum and maximum elevation points can be queried and labeled for a defined area of interest for terrain and tin surfaces.
