MapInfo Pro Advanced and 3D Maps

Product Affected: MapInfo Pro Advanced™
MapInfo Pro Advanced does not support 3D Maps when the image is opened as a "Raster".
The Pro user has to select the "Grid Image" option while opening the data, instead of "Raster Image", in order to use the 3D Map functionality.

There are two ways MapInfo Pro Advanced can help with generating the Grid Image format file for 3D Map support:
1. While using Create Raster option, for "Output File" field, select the "Save as type" as "ESRI ASCII GRID (*.asc)"
2. Use the Convert tool to Convert the GRD file to "ESRI ASCII GRID (*.asc)" file

Once  the .asc file is generated as output, open it as Grid Image to enable the 3D Map option.
