What units are the calculated area and volume in Discover3D?


In locations such as the Feature database, solid generator or Voxel Properties; a area or volume calculation is presented in Discover3D.

What units is this displayed in?


The units is simply the units of the Projections the 3D window is in.
You can check this under 3D Map>Properties>Scale.
Note the XY Units and the Assumed Z units.

By default the Z units is scaled to the XY units, such that the 3D Length/Area/volume will be correctly displayed in simple "m/m^2/m^3", for metres based projections.
