Writing Z value to Shapefile

Jul 22, 2011 at 9:50 AM

Hello all,

Apologies if I’m not meant to post here, I posted in the other forum yesterday and have been really struggling with this since.

I cannot write z values to a shape file (height). If I create geometry and add a coordinate with a X Y Z or a X Y Z M, and add this geometry to a feature then the Z value appears to be in the feature correctly as I can write it to the Console. However, when I use SaveAs and save the shapefile, and open it with GlobalMapper or other GIS application only the X and Y values are present.

Is there anything specific I need to do to enable Z values to be written out? I have set coordinateType = CoordinateType.Z but no joy.
I'd be really really appreciative of any help you guys can offer me.

I reported the problem, it has been fixed to my knowledge (a few months ago):
