I'm using qml display with c++ logic. I have a 2D map display with MapQuickView which loads a raster map from a tiff file and it works well. Now I want to load a DTM file with heights information so calculations can take the height into consideration. (For example - I want to calculate the line of sight of a certain point in a certain direction).

How can I use this heights info with MapView if at all?? The samples use ElevationSource only in scene views, but then don't see that option todisplay  2D map with rotation, panning, zoom etc.
