uSMART Mapping Tools

Contours

The Contour routines are used to place, label and clip contours. Contours can be placed manually or automatically. A dynamic feature is also available that enables the contours to be changed automatically as the TIN is changed. This mode is called "Track SLines". Both normal and indefinite contours can be placed and individual stream settings can be configured for each.

Depression contours can also be symbolised automatically using the "Contour Symbolize" routine. Attributes will be set according to the configuration.

When placing a contour line, uSMART knows whether it is a major or minor contour by the contour interval as set in "Contour Configure". Users need never specify whether a major or minor contour is being placed.
