My colleague has several hundred xyz files (*.xyz) and wants to make a DEM to use it in ArcMap. Files have three columns witohut first lane (variable names).
I suggested her:
- to add first line with x, y and z column names (i know just manual way)
- to convert xyz to dbf or similar
- to add it in arcmap (as add x y data)
- finally to use point to raster tool
I would probably know how to make a script for step 3 and 4, but i don't have any ideas how to solve step 1 and 2.
Or maybe there is an easier way (a tool,script) for direct conversion from xyz to dem?
