CellGrid - Grids Follow Topology

Recommended Posts

I'm using CellGrid2004a to generate a grid overlay to be used in Coastline Maker. However, I've run into a bit of a snag. The grid overlay is draped over the contours of the terrain which means that when the grid is viewed using the top-down view, the gridlines are not straight and orthogonal. This is particularly evident in mountainous areas. The grid cells are irregularly shaped which makes it difficult to use the grid with any accuracy.Any suggestions on how to overcome this problem?Thanks.

A good solution might be to use cellgrid in conjuction with LWMViewer, by Jim Keir. LWMViewer can output a bitmap of terrain scenery elements and a text file that georeferences the image.Dick
