Add Features

Used to add 3D graphical elements (as terrain model features) into a previously created terrain model.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Terrain > Edit > Feature Management split button

This Terrain Model Edit tool adds more 3D graphical elements (as terrain model features) into a previously created terrain model. One example is to create the terrain from break lines in the Create From Elements tool, then add points with the Add Features tool. Another example is adding more break lines that were field collected after the original terrain model was developed.
