    Posted: 04.Dec.2018 at 04:54

I have a surface with elevations that are coloured depending on the elevation. I would like to display only elevations between a certain range e.g 210m - 230m, and not display any elevation outside of this range. I will be displaying an aerial image underneath the elevations and I want this image to show through where the elevations do not match this range.

Is anyone able to point me to the best solution please?

Thank you in advance

Please go to

1. Surface properties
2. Analyse Tab
3. Elevation Analysis
5. Change the ranges to display the range that you want.
6. Make sure you have a style that shows elevations only.

Let me know if you have any questions.
