Creating the 3D Surface

A "3D Surface" is the heart of ProCogo's modeling engine and is what contours and volumes are calculated from.

1. Import or Create 3D points

The “surface” is created from 3D COGO points. These can be points that you have calculated yourself, or imported into the program.

 

2. Create the Surface

  1. On the DTM menu, select "Create a surface".
  2. Select the points to include in the surface (drag a window).
  3. When finished selecting points, press "Enter".
  4. Now enter a name for the surface and an option description.
