Viewing .csv file without DWC



  • Is there a stand alone app that can read the .csv file and show the height map, or do I need DWC.



  • Just open it in a notepad. CSV files are just text



  • You can open up a CSV in Microsoft Excel as well and use the chart tools to view a 3D representation of it similar to DWC

    Yes I have done that.
    But I was asking for help on a different site and they asked to see the map and I said all I have with me was the file. But they wanted to see the map.
    Thanks

    Not very good with Excel, I cannot seem how to do it. I'll just wait until I am in fron of my printer.
    Thanks for your time.



  • It's pretty easy to view it in Excel if you have one of the modern versions of Excel.

    Open the CSV, highlight all the grid data points (starting at the 4th row), then go to Insert, and on the ribbon there are some chart buttons, find the one that has bar graphs going above and below, in there will be a 3D surface map. Choose that option and it should drop in a little graph window showing your heightmap in 3D. You can right click on it, and choose 3D rotation, which opens a control panel that gives some rudimentary scale and rotation functions to view the map from different angles.

    Here's a picture that kind of shows everything.
