Source information

In this tutorial, we show you where to find the source of the elevation data.

Guide

Source information can be viewed either in the “Topography” menu or in the “Layer” menu (after data has been added to the project).

Source information in the Topography menu

Before you view/export elevation data, you can view the data source by clicking on a polygon in the “Topography” menu. When you click on a polygon, the attribute table will open in the bottom left. Scroll down to find “metadata_link” and click the link in the table to visit the source website.

Metadata_link is highlighted in blue 

Source information in the Layer menu

After processing elevation data, and adding a new layer to your project (e.g. contours, 3D surface, or point cloud) you can also find source information in the “Layer” menu.

Click on the layer to open the formatting menu, click on “Show Description,” then click on the metadata link.

Click on “Show Description”
