An overview of the Features toolset

The Features toolset contains tools that create cartographic features for topographic products.


Calculate Magnetic Components

Calculates the magnetic field at point locations for given date and altitude.

Calculate Max Elevation Figures

Calculates the maximum elevation figures (MEF) for each polygon cell or quadrangle in a polygon layer. These values are used as labels for the MEF feature layer.

Generate Adjoining Sheets Features

Generates features necessary for display in a typical topographic map adjoining sheets diagram.

Generate Elevation Guide Features

Creates data required for an elevation guide diagram surround element as required by various supported map product specifications. This tool uses existing banding and thinning parameters to generate output elevation band features, spot height features, and hydrology features.

Generate Location Diagram Features

Generates location diagram features for a Joint Operations Graphic (JOG), Operational Navigation Chart (ONC), or Tactical Pilotage Chart (TPC) map sheet. The location diagram must include JOG_Index features, WAC_Index features, ONC_Index features, or LandPoly features for the area surrounding the processed sheet.

Generate Spot Heights

Creates elevation point features based on contour tops and depressions. Elevation points are created in each top and depression. Point height values are populated based on a digital elevation model.

Generate Topographic Contours

Creates and smooths contours from an input raster.

Identify Contours

Identifies types of contours and applies hypsographic codes to input features.

Validate Spot Heights

Validates that spot heights are higher than or equal to their respective contour top, and based on the contour interval, that a contour top is not missing a contour line between it and a spot height.
