Hi,

I'm attempting to create a contour map using a DEM file. I'm able to do it though I'm pretty sure it's measuring using metric, and I'd like to use feet. I somehow remember there being an option to change measurements in earlier versions of ArcMap?

Thanks in advance.

Check the help topic on Contour There is a z-factor that allows you to convert.

THanks Dan,

I threw in 3.2808399 as the Z factor since that's how many feet are in a meter. It seems to have done the trick.

Best,

Jared
