View Shed for a building with a pitched roof

CyrrusCyrrus Global Mapper UserPosts: 6
If I create a building with a pitched roof and then include it in a View Shed calculation, the building is ignored. After editing the building vertices to make the roof horizontal, the building is taken into account by the View Shed. Is this a bug with the View Shed software or just a limitation? I am using V17.2 (b052716) but have observed the same issue in V13.

    I recommend that you send a detailed description of your workflow and results (including a screen capture of your view shed options), along with your data, if possible, to Blue Marble Geographics Support (  This will ensure that the support team knows about the problem, and will expedite a solution.  Thank you.
