The Compose Surface tool allows you to manage multiple surface models in the Compose Surface window. Your surface models can have several purposes. For example, you can export and thin point values from the model and apply them to a navigational product like a paper chart or ENC or calculate a slope across a surface to support pipeline planning. These products may require that you are able to trace back to where the source data came from. For traceability purposes, a surface model is never permanently deleted from the Bathymetry Information System (BIS) geodatabase.
