I would like to know how to display measured topo point cut/fills when compared to an active surface. This can be done in SCS900 and displayed on the data collector screen. Would be very useful if this function is available in TBC
Great question Pat.- If you have created an Isopach (to create a Cut Fill Map, you can create a Copy of the Points that you surveyed on a new layer and then use the Change Elevation command to set the copied points to the elevation of the Isopach Surface. Then you can use Label Points to Label them with Elevations and you will get +- Elevations where + means that the Surface 1 - Surface 2 Value is Positive (High) and - means the Surface 1 - Surface 2 Value is a negative value (i.e Low) but you have to have a Cut Fill Map or a Volume Difference Isopach to achieve this.
You can also run the Pavement Conformance report (Corridor Menu) that compares the Measured Points to the Target Surface and generates an Excel File of Station, Offset, Elevation, Delta Elevation with optional N and E values. If you report the N and E values and then in Excel delete the Station, Offset (or keep those if you have an alignment for the checks), and substitute the Delta Elevation for the actual elevation, you can then import the Point, N, E, Z, D or Sta, Off, Elev data like we showed you last week at PUG and create points with the Deltas as their Elevation and then Label those or turn on the values using View Filter Manager - this will give you what you need today. (it is a work around)
We have noted your requirement here (and others have given the same feedback) and I hope that we can have this labeling need in a future release - that will cover this workflow and also that required for labeling Bridge Beam Deflections etc, (Watch this space)
