The different ways to delete data in WMS makes it very easy to eliminate any portion or all of the data associated with a given model. One important thing to remember is that deleting in WMS does not cause the data to be permanently removed or erased from the hard drive, but rather eliminates it from core memory for a specific run of WMS. For example, if reading a TIN in from a file and then deleting the TIN, it will no longer appear in WMS but the file that was read in is not deleted from the hard disk.
The methods that can be used to delete data from WMS include:
- Deleting all data and starting over with the New command in the File menu.
- Deleting selected items (vertices, triangles, arcs, etc.) with the Delete command in the Edit menu.
- Deleting all data associated with a given module (i.e. all terrain data in the terrain data module) using the Delete All command in the Edit menu.
- Deleting object specific data such as all feature objects, drawing objects, or DXF data with the Delete command found in individual menus, or by right clicking on the object in the Project Explorer and choosing Delete.
