Vector to DEM
I think this has been covered before and it is probably obvious, but perhaps because of my time deadline looming over me I am not figuring out how to do it. I have a CAD file depicting 1-foot topographic contours for a site. I converted that in ArcGIS to a shapefile, with one column for elevation (FYI, the elevation numbers are truncated by GM). How can I convert that to a DEM for 3-D modeling?
