Deleting TIN Nodes interactively

Two tools exist to delete nodes from a TIN surface: Delete TIN Node and Delete TIN Nodes By Area.

Delete TIN node tools

Use the Delete TIN Node Delete TIN Node interactive tool to remove nodes from a TIN. Click on a node to remove it.

The nodes within the polygon will be removed from the triangulation.
