Creating a layer from a Digital Elevation Model (DEM) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm looking for some high level guidance and strategies for creating a bing map layer from a digital elevation model.

    I have my xyz (Longitude, Latitude, Elevation) points stored in a sql database (a good read on that process by Alastair Aitchison here --> ) .

    Next I need to transform these points into shapes/polygons that represent elevation. My thinking is that once I have polygons, I can generate a raster tile. In order to transform the points into shapes, I was hoping that there was a C# library that would perform this task. Transforming from points to polygons is where I am stuck.

    Here is a sample DEM layer that I am trying to generate (did the below layer with the Global Mapper desktop tool)


    And here is a tile from that layer


    Thank you for your time and any analysis or suggestions you might have,
