Filter Data

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewReturn to Top Next page












The Filter Data menu item is used to remove data points from geometry objects that fall outside one or more bounded polygons or regions. It is supported for every type except polylines. The action can be inverted, to remove data points that fall inside one or more bounded polygons instead of outside them.


This action will create a new surface; the original surface will be unaffected.


This operation does not clip object data with the bounding polygon or region, it acts only as a simple filter. To crop precisely with the boundary, use the Crop with Boundary menu item.
