A grid is a geometry object containing a pattern of criss-crossing X and Y lines that form a rectangle. The spacing of these X and Y lines can be regular, irregular, or a combination of both. The definition of grids ensures that there is a unique elevation value stored for every X-Y intersection. This guarantee of uniqueness makes grids easy for surface data definitions in an SVOFFICE model.

 

NOTE:

 

SVOFFICE 2006 and SVOFFICE 2009 use grids as the standard 3D surface type. Newer versions of SVOFFICE also support meshes.
