Importing georeferencing and draping maps and images onto different surfaces in Leapfrog including the topography surface, can be very useful for tying 2D surface data into the 3D modeling environment.

Please note: In late 2020, Leapfrog Works received a significant update to its user interface. While the current version of Leapfrog looks quite different from the version used to record this video, most of this content is still valid as the layout, location of functions, and workflows remain largely the same. For more information about the latest new features, please see the Leapfrog Works product page (
