Qimera Export Surface Dialog

How to Start

  • Export Surface option of the Dynamic Surface in the Export drop down in the Main Menu bar

What it Does

This dialog is used to export surface information from a selected surface layer.

General Description

This dialog is launched via the Export Surface option of the Layer menu in the Main Menu bar.  This option allows the current selected Dynamic Surface or Static Surface to be exported to another supported surface. When saving the data, areas of the surface containing no data may be included with the output file if the Include Missing Data option is on. If missing data is included, a special value is written for these data points, indicated by the No Data Value text field. When writing a binary file, you may specify either writing an 8-bit or 16-bit number, or a 32-bit greyscale value containing red, green, blue, and alpha components. When exporting to ASCII X and XYZ Grids, there is an option to specify decimal precision of the Z value being written.
