Create Elevation Grid from 3D Vector Data - Failure

Hello everybody!

I am attempting to convert a .map file into a regular grid. I have an area approx. 20 km x 20 km with a mixture of 1, 5 and 20 m contour line intervals.

After working for about an hour Global Mapper shuts down without errors. I am monitoring my memory (32 GB) and the CPUs (12 of them) and they don't seem to be the limit...

Any help is appreciated :)

    Which version of Global Mapper are you using and is it the 32-bit or 64-bit version? If you can use the 64-bit version I would recommend it.

    Otherwise, you are likely hitting a 32-bit memory limit and crashing. Try using the Gridding tab when starting the process of creating the elevation grid to break it into smaller pieces (say maybe 9 pieces using a 3x3 grid) and see if that works.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
