All datasets generated after 1 March 2018 will automatically be processed with a KML boundary that indicates the limits of your site. 

What can I do with the terrain boundary? 

  • Clearly see the limits of your site in a way that's consistent from one dataset to another. 
  • Create consistent whole of site Cut/ Fill or Takeoff Reports by converting the boundary to an annotation and using Volume Compare to measure the changes across your site between datasets.   

How to view the boundary 

  • From the 'Layers' menu toggle 'Terrain Boundary'

  • From the 'Layers' menu toggle 'Terrain Boundary'
  • Click the the highlighted shape on the map
  • Select 'Clamp to Ground'.
  • Click 'Convert to Annotation'
