how to convert shape file to DEM FILE..


Recommended Posts

Not directly, but you can in a round about sort of way.

You'll first need to convert the shapefile to feature objects in the map module. You can use a generic coverage for this. Next, you'll need to convert your feature objects to a TIN. This will take all the nodes and vertices from the feature objects and convert them to TIN vertices. Lastly, you'll want to convert the TIN to a DEM and then you can save the file as a .dem file.
