I'm having the following problem -
An 8 mile by 4 mile set of 2 foot contours.
Whenever I start the topo to raster tool, I get a constant loop of the tool running. And running, and running, and running, with no effect, even after letting the process run over 10 hours overnight.
Settings that I'm using are as follows: Cell size 5 Extent same as input Margin: 50 Drainage: Enforced input data: contour maximum number of iterations: 20 Roughness Penalty: Discretisation error factor: 0 Vertical standard error: 0 Tolerance 1: 1 Tolerance 2: 100
Any help y'all could offer, would be a great, great help. I would also be interested to know other workarounds to make a DEM from detailed contour information.
