Dear GM assistant,
I would like to know if GM is able to extract elevation value at a specific point.
I explain : I overlay a DEM and a vector layer (points) and I want to extract the elevation value of each point. I hope GM allows these things.
Thank you

    Yes, you can easily do that. Simply load your DEM and point data, then use the Digitizer Tool and select all of the points (use Edit->Select All). Then, right click and select the option to add elevations to the point features. You can then export the now 3D points to vector formats and save the elevation values.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
