Optimized Volume Calculation

Is it possible to have Global Mapper calculate the optimized Volume (chosen by user) with the smallest surface area from elevation data?

    I'm not quite sure what you mean by the optimized volume. Do you mean like the tools to calculate the height such that the cut and fill volumes for an area are equal so that you don't have to transport any material to or from the site? There are also options in the Digitizer Tool in Global Energy Mapper to calculate an optimal rotation for an area to both make the cut-and-fill equal and also minimize the total volume (i.e. amount of earthwork required). Would something lose those tools work?
