In this article, I will go through the steps of creating a new local elevation source that you can use in the 3D map we added to MapInfo Pro v2023.
As we discussed in an earlier article, MapInfo Pro v2023 comes with a global elevation source, MapZen Terrarium, but it's not kept up to date and the resolution may also not always be as good as you need. No worries, you can create your own using your own local data.
I'll use a digital elevation model in the form of an MRR covering a 2 by 2 km area. This DTM has a resolution of 40 cm. In the map below, you can see a larger elevation model that I clipped out my 2 by 2 km DTM.
