B

Turn surface snapping on or off.

Surface snapping provides on-demand positioning of the floating mark to the elevation surface at the current stereo cursor location. This provides the z-value at the stereo cursor position.

This feature requires the images to have statistics calculated and pyramids built with either bilinear or cubic resampling.

T

Turn terrain following on or off.

Terrain following automatically keeps the stereo cursor on the elevation surface as you pan the stereo image pair. This feature is useful in navigating the stereo display.

If you are using a very large image over a remote network connection, it is recommended that you do not use this feature, because there may be significant delays for the system to retrieve the correct information. It is also recommended that you do not use this feature in the fixed cursor mode, especially on images that have frequent and dramatic surface change, such as a DSM with dense buildings.

This feature requires the images to have statistics calculated and pyramids built with either bilinear or cubic resampling.
