Tools > Convert 2D to 3D


2D Vector data with point, line or area objects can be converted to 3D vector data using a 3D reference.


Set the source vector file or directory via drag & drop or browse to the file location.


Set the target file for the result dataset.

  • Optionally when target file already exists, overwrite the existing file.
  • Optionally when processing is completed, add converted resource automatically to the dataset list.


  • 3D Vertexes from Vertextes
    All vertexes of the point, lines or area objects will be separately converted to 3D vertexes.
  • 3D Boxes from Areas
  • Vertical Areas from Segments
  • Vertical Lines from Points

3D Reference

  • Attribute Value
    Select an attribute from the source vector file to be used as the height.
  • DEM Resource
  • Fixed Height
  • Pointcloud Lowest Z
  • Pointcloud Highest Z
  • Pointcloud Average Z
