LIDAR Editing

I'm trying to edit the LIDAR data after I generate contours to correct problem areas from vegetation. If I turn on the LAS layer I cannot see the contours without zooming in very closely. Is there a way to raise the contours above the LAS data?

Thanks,
Mark

    The draw order of the layers can be changed using the up and down arrows on the right side of the Overlay Control Center. The layer at the bottom of the list will appear on top of the other layers in the map window. Try moving the Contour layer to the bottom of the list using the down arrow. Also, changing the styling of the contour lines may help with seeing the lines within the lidar points.

    Cassandra,

    I'm aware of how the layers work, but the contours and the lidar points apparently are on the same z level so you cannot see the contours unless zoomed way in on the workspace. Changing colors does not help either. I have attached a partial screen shot.

    Thanks,

    OK, Another option you can try is changing the Vector Layer Ordering in the Configuration Dialog Box. Under the Vector Display tab, select the option "Order Vector Features by Layer Order First." Please let me know if this option does not bring the contours to the top.

    Thanks,
    Cassandra

    Perfect! That solved it.
