An overview of the Elevation toolset

The Elevation toolset contains a tool that calculates the highest known terrain or vertical obstruction in a cell.



Calculate Maximum Elevation Figures

Calculates Maximum Elevation Figures (MEF) for each polygon cell or quadrangle in the MEF Feature Layer. MEF values are the elevation of the highest natural or manufactured obstruction plus a vertical error and allowance. This sum is rounded to the next higher hundred-foot level. You use these values as labels for the MEF Feature Layer.
