Qimera Dynamic Surface Menu

Qimera - Dynamic Surface Menu

The dynamic surface menu allows you to perform many operations on a Dynamic Surface.  Some are export utilities while others are analysis or further processing.

Create Dynamic Surface

Launches the Create Dynamic Surface dialog.

Append Lines

Launches the Append To Dynamic Surface dialog. 

Remove Lines

Launches the Remove Lines dialog.

Unload Changes

Launches the Qimera Unload Processed Point File Dialog to save edits back to processed point files that support unloading.

Select Associated Source Files

This will clear the current line selection and select all the lines in the scene associated with the currently selected Dynamic Surface.

Re-compute Surface Illumination

This will launch a job to re-compute the surface illumination for the currently selected Dynamic Surface.  This option is relevant only if you are in Mixed Shading mode.  This is typically done automatically during dynamic surface generation.

Snapshot as Static Surface

This will launch the Snapshot as Static Surface dialog.

Extract Dynamic surface Layer

This will launch the Extract Dynamic Surface Layer dialog. 

Create Survey Area

This will open a file browser to select the name for the survey area SD object.  It will then be automatically added to the scene.  A survey area object is a Fledermaus Line SD object of the outline of the survey area.  Qimera will also report the area in square meters.

Create Flag Markers

This will launch the Create Flag Markers dialog.

Set Checked Area

This will set the checked bit flag in the cells covered by the current selection.  This option will only work if you have a dynamic surface selected and a spatial area selected.  You can then view checked areas by using the Highlight By option of the Qimera Project Layers Dock for Dynamic Surfaces.  This bit can only be cleared by using the Reset Checked Area option below.  The checked bit flag is also independent of the visited/edited areas seen in the Surface Edit Overview Dock.

Checked Area

The Set/Reset Checked Area options are no longer in the 3D Editor as they are available here and through the shortcut keys.
