Description

Points

Analyze Between Points - Reports information between 2 point locations on a terrain model (elevation difference, length and slope).

Analyze Point - Reports information about a user-specified point location in a terrain model (elevation, slope, contour, slope direction).

Inverse Points - Reports information about a user-specified point location in a terrain model (elevation, slope, contour, slope direction). Several types are supported: linear, arc, radial, perpendicular and by element. The tool is supported in both 2D and 3D views / models. The results are displayed at the cursor prompt, and optionally, the Civil Report Browser

Volumes

Create Cut Fill Volumes - Calculates cut and fill volumes between two surfaces, usually an existing a terrain and a surface (terrain or mesh) and creates a 3D mesh solid with volume attributes.

Analyze Volume - Calculates volume between 2 terrain models or a terrain model and plane (elevation). Capable of processing in an area (fence) or multiple areas and computing the volumes over a range of elevations. Cut and fill factors are also options.

Hydraulic

Analyze Pond - Analyzes terrain model for ponds (low point) located via a data point location on a terrain model (volume, area max depth).

Analyze Trace Slope - Traces along a surface either following a user-specified slope value or the steepest slope. Can trace upstream or downstream.

Reporting

Report Crossing Features - Locates intersecting line features, such as break lines or contours.

Report Conflicting Points - Reports source data used to create the terrain model with duplicate points (as defined by an X, Y location with the same or differing elevations).

Aquaplaning

Analysis of terrain surface for potential aquaplaning conditions.

Sight Visibility

Analysis of sight distances along an alignment or a corridor's control alignment based on specified design terrain or a corridor's top mesh and an optional existing surface or mesh.
