hello, I want to ask a question about terrabuilder 1.7(abbr. TB 1.7)..
I try to use TB 1.7 to build a mpt with some images , DTM and vector,
But I don't have an idea about importing vector such as shpfiles.
Could you give me a guide to import vector file into TB ?
Thanks a lot..

Hi,

It's a more flexible approach to import vector data into TerraExplorer Pro, instead of TerraBuilder. 
 
If you build your Terrain model with your vector data built into your MPT, then you won't be able to turn that data on or off in TerraExplorer.  You also won't be able to modify it.  You'd have to build your Terrain model over again any time you wanted to make a change.
 
Do you have the most recent release of TerraExplorer Pro?

hello,wilson .
first of all , thanks for your reply. I have learned the flexible approach to import vector data into TerraBuilder.
By the way , our TE pro version is 5.1 . So I'm curious about is there  a way to import vector into TB ?  thanks .

of course you can
you can use the Convert Vector Sources tool From the Tools menu
convert the shp files to mpu
then you can insert the converted file in your TB Project!

First of all ,thanks for your reply.
 
I did it with the step you taught!! ...
After Producting the MPT file, I can't see the vector data(shp files) I have built ..
I had no idea why the mpt can't show the vector ? Could you tell me how to find the bug ?
Thanks a lot!!

does the vector's coordinate is the same as the image or/and DEM?
you should check this before you create mpt!
best regards!

Please note that in most cases Skyline no longer recommends adding vector sources to an MPT. The proper way the greatest functionality is to load it in TerraExplorer.
In fact, the option for adding a vector source is discontinued in the next version of TB.
