Extrude 3D from 2D shapes with the Editor 3

Our new 3D map rendering functionality enables simple extruding of 3D representations from 2D shape files. Every shape has the properties FalseZ and FalseM, which allow for the attachment of additional 3D data to any shape (even a 2D shape). If you have a shape file with only a X,Y value, FalseZ and FalseM allow the creation of a XYZM 3D object. With 3D shapes containing XYZ coordinates, the FalseM property will easily create a XYZM object.
