Exporting Contours from DEM
« on: November 27, 2017, 01:00:43 PM »
Im wondering what the best way to export Contours is. I know I can export them from the Export Shapes Function. But is there any way we can export the also as DWG/DXF?

QGis is not able to open the generated contours from Agisoft...

Thanks

Hello GrinGEO,

Export Shapes command supports SHP, DXF and KML output formats. Which issues you have with the exported shapes display in QGIS?

Found it.... I can import the DXF file in QGis, but not the shape files.... it doesn't open it at all or doesn't show any information

Hello GrinGEO,

Just in the neighboring thread last week we were checking the SHP files display:
http://www.agisoft.com/forum/index.php?topic=8032.0
You can see the screenshots of SHP files export displayed in QGIS and Global Mapper on the screenshots.

Which information is lacking in your shape files? Labels, attributes, color?
