Contours and Volumes

With the optional DTM routines, you can create a TIN model and then generate contours from it. You can also calculate the difference between two surface to get volume reports.

Note! These features are only available in the DTM version.

Features

Lines and arcs have the following features and properties.

  • Fast TIN generation (50,000 points in 10 seconds).
  • Break-line support.
  • Clip surface with a boundary.
  • Major and minor contour intervals.
  • Easy contour labeling.
  • Adjustable contour smoothing.
  • Label spot elevations and cut or fill.
  • Raise or lower an entire surface.
  • Calculate Volumes between two surfaces.

Contour labeling

With the optional DTM routines, you can create a TIN model and then generate contours from it. You can also calculate the difference between two surface to get volume reports.

Adjustable contour smoothing

Apply just enough contour smoothing to soften the contour lines without grossly distorting them. You have complete control as to how much smoothing to apply.

Raise or lower a surface

Take your TOPO shots using an assumed elevation. You can then raise or lower the entire surface to the correct elevation at any time.
