After cleaning up your drone data with Virtual Surveyor, the Export Elevation tool allows you to deliver a part of the elevation terrain as a new Digital Elevation Model (DEM). 

The Export Elevation tool is available in the EXPORT tab.

Quick Usage Guide

  1. Draw a boundary around the area you want to export.
  2. Select the boundary.
  3. Go to the EXPORT tab.
  4. Click on Export Elevation.
  5. Specify a filename and a disk location and then click Save.

Hint: Enable terrain modifiers to export the cleaned up elevation terrain. 

Why Export Elevation is Useful

  • You can also use the Export Elevation feature to cut out a specific area from a very large DEM. The clipped elevation terrain can be shared with colleagues and customers, or used to create a new Virtual Surveyor project, which will run faster.

Tips & Tricks

  • You can combine Export Elevation with Export Image on the same area to generate a new and lighter dataset. 
  • The exported DEM is a GeoTIFF.
