Global Mapper v24.1

Filtering points by elevation

Good morning.

I am processing a set of more than 4000 points, and all of them have associated an elevation. The question is, can I filter these points by elevation? 

For example, use only the points that have en elevation between 600m and 700m.

Thank you.

    Hi meliorly,

    Which version of =Global Mapper are you using?

    The simplest way to filter features is to use the Search Vector Data function to find all of the features with an ELEVATION attribute value that is outside the desired range, and delete them. Once you have done this, you can export the data to create a new data set that contains only points with elevations in the range that you need. 

    If this is not what you had in mind, then please provide a more detailed description of what you are trying to do.  Thanks.

  • Thank you for the answers!

    My version is 19 Jeff, and the solution that Bob said works fine for me.
