It's hard to tell what you're looking for or what the output format would be. Could you supply an example or illustration? – whuber May 30 '13 at 17:32
it sounds like you want to drape the grid onto your dem. this sound correct? – Brad Nesom May 30 '13 at 19:16
@whuber I need the grid just at the background to show the relative position of grid with x,y and z axis. – Gunner May 31 '13 at 3:32
@BradNesom not exactly that grid or fishnet should be like box enclosing we can predict the relative position of dem point from x,y,z axis. – Gunner May 31 '13 at 3:35
Are you talking about reference grids in the coordinate planes, as in this image? – whuber May 31 '13 at 8:13
