DETerrainClass Class

Esri Terrain data element object.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.

Description

DETerrain, the terrain data element, is used to access the global properties of a terrain dataset. These must be set at the time the terrain dataset is created. The IDETerrain interface, implemented by DETerrain, is used to set the basic properties associated with any terrain. If IDETerrain.PyramidType is set to esriTerrainPyramidWindowSize then IDETerrainWindowSize should be used to set those properties specific to window size based pyramids. Once the properties of the DETerrain object are set it is passed to the TerrainFeatureDatasetExtension to instantiate the terrain via IDatasetContainer3.CreateDataset.
