- Terrain data is a key component of your InfraWorks model…because it defines the shape of the land…that you are proposing to develop.…Let's take a look at how to import terrain data…to bring your model to life in 3D.…I've opened the Chapter 2 Hotel Lynda model,…and I've selected the Import_Terrain proposal.…I'll also press the home key to set my model…to home view.…Now if you've done what I've done, we should be looking…at the same look on our screen.…I do want to point out though, that this model…is currently flat even though the aerial imagery…is very convincing that we have mountains in the model,…when we actually look at the model from the side,…we see that it is perfectly flat.…
