Contours

If on, displays the contours of the terrain model.

Triangles

If on, displays the triangles of the terrain model.

Triangle Vertices

If on, allows an elevation label at each vertex in the terrain model.

Flow Arrows

If on, allows configuration of arrows that indicate direction of flow across the terrain model.

Low Points

If on, allows the labeling of symbols and elevations at low points in the terrain model.

High Points

If on, allows the labeling of symbols and elevations at high points in the terrain model.

Calculated Feature Settings

Contours

Max Slope Option

Ignore Max Slope allows for the omission of contours that exceed the Max Slope Value.

Max Slope Value

Slopes steeper than this value are not drawn. The Max Slope Value is entered in decimal slope. Decimal slope is the ratio of the change in elevation per unit length in master units.

Smoothing Factor

Controls how much smoothing occurs. Ranges from 1 to 10 with 10 being the smoothest.

Smoothing

Options are None, Spline, Spline Without Overlap Detection, and Vertex. None does not smooth out contours. Contours may appear angular.

Spline produces very smooth contours. Performance may be slower.

Spline Without Overlap Detection skips detecting and correcting overlaps. In areas with sharp curvature in the contours, the contours may overlap. Use this method over the Spline method for better performance time.

Vertex uses a circular curved smoothing algorithm instead of splines.

Major Interval

The elevation range at which a major contour is drawn.

Minor Interval

The elevation range at which a minor contour is drawn.

Major Contours

Display

If on, shows the major contours.
