Hello! I am working on maybe an unusal project right now. I have downloaded a race route from my Strava account as a GPX file and then used the GPX to Points tool in Arc. What tool should I use that would and parameters so that this current point route (attached) could be converted into a straight DEM file. The current shapefile has a Z value… (Show more)

Hi, I am currently editing a layer and in doing so I am losing the ‘z’ values of various features. I do have a TIN model wih which I may interpolate and regain the ‘z’ values.  However I would like to know if it is possible to interpolate ‘z’ values of just the selected features and not all the layer.

Click to view contentI have a USGSDEM file downloaded from NRCAN. It has a known geographic coordinate system (GCS_North_American_1983) so I don't have to define the projection. I want to project this dem into a UTM coordinate system so I can eventually delineate a watershed. When I run the Project Raster tool it shows that it is processing but it never produces an… (Show more)

Hello, If you were to take a certain elevation threshold (contour line) and select all area ABOVE that line, you might end up with a polygon that is essentially a mountain top. I work for a non-profit organization that works primarily in watersheds but we also work in places like the buffer area surrounding the Mt. Kilimanjaro National Park and… (Show more)

I have created a Hillshade effect and would like to use the Contours tool on the 3D Analyst toolbar to show me the Contour Elevation in feet. Right now it is giving me something like. 118.258 instead of 7.8 feet How can I change this?   Thanks

Team,   The default or first option for any raster re-sampling / re-projection geoprocessing tools is "nearest neighbor". This re-sampling algorithm is explicitly for integer or categorical data. The other two options are for continuous data and represent interpolation schemes.    Because "nearest neighbor" is the default re-sampling algorithm,… (Show more)

I have a Digital Elevation Model and polygon shapefile and I want to make an effect that polygons follow terrain structure according to DEM. If I just overlay it over DEM the polygon will be flat. I know how to do that in ArcScene, but I want to do that in ArcMap and not sure how. I have tried with Window\Image Analysis but without success. I… (Show more)
