A terrain dataset's properties are set throughout various stages of the terrain dataset creation process. The following is a list of the main properties of a terrain dataset:
- Average point spacing
- Height source
- Surface feature type (SFType)
- Terrain pyramid type
- Overview terrain
- Embedded feature classes
- Pyramid resolution bounds
- Anchor points
Consider how each property is represented prior to building a terrain dataset. For more information on each terrain dataset property, see the above topics.
The terrain dataset properties can be accessed in either ArcCatalog or ArcMap . To view the terrain dataset properties in ArcCatalog, right-click the terrain dataset and click Properties. To view the terrain dataset layer properties in ArcMap, right-click the terrain layer in the table of contents and click Properties. The terrain dataset properties in ArcCatalog are more complete and provide more information about terrain schema definition.
