computing average elevation and slope

Hi,

I have a map that contains elevation data and boundaries that form a few hundred area features. Ideally, I would like to calculate the elevation and slope for each of those areas. Is it possible? Thanks a lot!

D.

    D.,

    If you have the terrain data loaded you can use the slope shader to graphically display slopes. There is not a way to automatically assign those values to the area features though.

    Thanks,

    thanks a lot! I understand that I cannot automatically assign elevation and slope values for those areas, but is it even possible to compute them in the first place?

    D.,

    All that you could really do is get elevation values associated with each vertex of the area. There are not currently any tools to calculate the average elevation and/or slope of a selected area features, although that is something that we have on our todo list for inclusion in a future release.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
