Mesh Generator - Mesh from GEOTIFF

I can create a nice looking mesh with contours by right-clicking on this project's GEOTIFF file and simply converting to a 2D Mesh, however when I go through the Mesh Generator in order to create an "unobstructed mesh" for simulation using a large four sided polygon to capture my site area, and using the scatter set created from the GEOTIFF, the Mesh Generator only creates one diagonal triangle edge across the polygon for the mesh.

What could I be doing incorrectly here?

Fcernst, you likely have already moved on from this question, but for sake of providing an answer for others out there that may be facing a similar question, the elements are generated based upon the spacing of the arc vertices and nodes. To see a great demonstration of this, check out the meshing tutorial at the link below.
