Exporting vector polygon boundary from elevation (ASCII or GMG)

Hello,

I am trying to export a shapefile (polygon/area) of the boundary of an elevation data (ASCII or GMG). I used different software for this in the past, and  I was wondering if this is possible to achieve with global mapper.

Thanks!

    Hi,
    1. Use Layer | Create Layer Coverage Box/Polygon Area Features, and choose the option to create a polygon instead of a bounding rectangle.  This will add a polygon to your User Created Features layer. 
    2. Select the User Created Features layer in the Control Center
    3. Right-click and choose Layer | EXPORT - Export Layer(S) to New File...
    4. Choose Shapefile from the list
    Cheers,
    Bob

    Thanks! Is there a command I can use for "Create Layer Coverage Box/Polygon Area Features" in GM scripting?
