Contour Levels

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewReturn to Top Next page












The Contour Levels dialog allows the user to define their own range of values to be used for contouring.


Start, End:This is the minimum and maximum desired contour level. Note that changing these values will affect the number of increments and/or the increment value.


Increments:This is the number of contour levels, including the start and the end. Note that changing this value will affect the increment value.


Increment Value:This is the desired distance between adjacent contour levels. The value will be changed if the input value is not usable given the start and end values - in other words, changing the increment is not allowed to change the start or end values. Also note that this value may affect the number of increments as well, if the desired increment cannot be satisfied.
