4.1.3. Project Electrodes to SurfaceΒΆ

The program surface_electrodes.exe is used to project electrodes to the discrete surface topography. This is needed when:

  1. you have a surface formatted survey/observations file, or

  2. the survey/observations file has the true elevations of the electrodes and electrodes currently located in air cells must be projected to the discretize surface topography.

Parameters necessary for defining the OcTree mesh are set in the input file; referred to here as octree_mesh.inp.

To generate a survey/observations file with electrodes on the discrete surface topography, open a command window. Next, type the path to the code surface_electrodes.exe, followed by a space, followed by the path to the input file.
