Join Eric Chappell for an in-depth discussion in this video Import terrain data, part of InfraWorks Essential Training.
- Terrain Data is a very important aspect of your model.…After all, it defines the shape of the earth,…the very thing that you're redefining…as you build your design.…Let's take a look at how to add…terrain data to your model.…I'm in the "Chapter Two - Lynda Heights" model…and I've chosen a proposal called "Terrain".…The easiest way to add our terrain data to the model…is to simply drag and drop it.…So, I'm going to open up Windows Explorer…and I'll browse to the "Data Sources" folder…and within the "Data Sources" folder…is a "Terrain" folder.…
And then you'll find another folder named "n35w120".…This was the way the folder downloaded…from the national map viewer,…and inside that folder you'll see…a whole series of files.…The only one you need to worry about…is the one at the top here which is the ".img" file.…You'll notice it's the biggest file in the list.…And to add this data source, all I need to do…is drag and drop…into my Infraworks model.…
Infraworks will automatically open the…data source configuration dialogue…
