dfs1 files for profiles
« on: February 17, 2014, 07:40:46 pm »
Hi everyone,

We are trying to extract dfs1 profiles from 2D bathymetry (mdf or dfsu files). We have tried converting the dfsu bathymetry to dfs2 but the geospatial references were lost. Is there an easy way to extract dfs1 profiles from 2D bathymetry?

Your help would be greaty appreciated!

Hi Ewelina,

please open the dfsu - file with the DatamanagerApp. Under the Tools - Menu, you can select Extract ...
You can choose, whether you want to extract by digitizing a line or loading profiles of a xyz - file.

Please specify a filename.

The extracted file is of dfs1 - Format and holds all extracted timesteps for the profile.

Hope, that helps.
