MNT Grinding and 3D Surface Mapping
MNT is a grid-based mapping program that interpolates irregularly spaced XYZ data into a regularly spaced grid.
MNT Flow Chart
This flow chart illustrates the relationship between XYZ data files, grid files, and 3D surface maps.
MNT create a grid-based map from an XYZ data file. The Gridding command uses an XYZ data file to produce a grid file (MNT). The grid file is then used by MNT command to produce maps. Label Point do not use grid files. The general steps to progress from a XYZ data set to a finished, grid-based map are as follows:
