Importing Tiff/ .LAS into QT Modeler.

QT Modeler

Importing Files

- First export the files you would like imported into QT Modeler from the Mapware website.

Open the model then in the lower right hand corner click "Export". I window will open and select all files you wish to download.

From there go to the Export tab on the models page in which all the files you selected for download will be there. Click the three dots to the left and click download. 

- QT Modeler has two ways to import Geotiffs and .LAS files.

First way is to click “File” in the upper left corner, then in the drop-down menu click “Open             Model(s)”

A File explorer will open, form which you can navigate through your files and select the files you want to import. Multiple files can be imported at a time.

The second way to import files is the “Drag and Drop” method.

While QT Modeler is open, Click on the “File Explorer” icon on your windows tool bar at the bottom of the screen.

Then navigate to the file or files you wish to import (multiple files can also be imported at once from this method).

Highlight the file/files, then left click on the mouse and hold the left mouse button down.

While still holding drag the file into the gray area of the program

The green bar below shows the status of the files importing into the program from left to right.

Once the file is imported in you can later add more files to the model viewer. This can be done by using the same two methods explained above. With the drag and drop you will now drop the file into the black background area

Hiding and Deselecting

- While working in QT Modeler with multiple files open, you will notice it will get noisy and it will become hard to tell one file from another as seen below.

In QT Modeler you are able to turn files off and on.

            On the left hand side, you will see all the files, folders, and layers.

            The blue check mark next to the file name means the file is displayed in the viewer.

Click the blue check mark to turn it off in the viewer. To turn it back on just click the open box to where there is a blue check box again.
