Graphical representation of elevation data.

  1. May 14, 2015 #1
    What other ways other than a typical contour map and a line graph, are there to graphically present elevation data from a levelling run etc?

    Any help would be great appreciated.

    Thank you.

    A color map? A 3 D surface? A 3 D surface with equi-height contours?

    A 3 D surface with color mapped to heights.

    Any of the above with dots labelled with actual data points.
