Section Result File Format
Two-Dimensional Section Result File Format
Two-dimensional section result file format can be ASCII (. Txt), vector (. SHP), and DXF (. DXF). Names can help to distinguish they are cross section or longitudinal section (CrossSection is the name for points in cross section and LongiSection is the name for points in longitudinal section by default). The section result file contains three columns, including name, distance to origin (in longitudinal section, the origin is the starting point. In longitudinal section, the origin is the intersection of cross section and longitudinal section. To left is negative, to right is positive), and elevation. Name suggests in which cross section this point is. E.g., CrossSection1(0) indicates this point is in the cross section named CrossSection1, and this cross section and the longitudinal section 0 are orthogonal. Elevation records the true hight of this point in the three-dimensional coordinate system. Following is the part of exported two-dimensional section result file:
Name,Distance,Height CrossSection1(0),39.510,0.025 CrossSection1(0),39.413,0.085 ... CrossSection2(0),33.884,0.000 CrossSection2(0),32.447,0.033 ... CrossSection7(1),43.774,0.000 CrossSection7(1),42.662,0.025
Three-Dimensional Section Result File Format
Three-dimensional section result file format can be ASCII (. Txt), vector (. SHP)，ASCII file is comma separated text file. The section file contains four columns, including name, x coordinate, y coordinate, z coordinate. Points are in the same section if their names are the same.
Name,X,Y，Z CrossSection1(0),323128.788,4104260.073,0.025 CrossSection1(0),323130.481,4104261.752,39.413 ... CrossSection2(0),323245.294,4104234.559,0.073 CrossSection2(0),323245.659,4104234.934,0.103 ... CrossSection7(1),323429.209,4104472.832,0.000 CrossSection7(1),323430.965,4104472.877,0.011
