This submenu shows two options that allow the user to create topographic profiles from an imported terrain model. The options under this submenu are the shown in the following figure:

Figure 1. Extract Topographic Profiles submenu

The available options for extracting topographic profiles from a terrain model are:

  • Radial topographic profiles: Allows the user to extract multiple topographic profiles by choosing a starting point (also referred to as "the center"), and a radius (which will be the length of each topographic profile). The obtained profiles will match the radii of the circle with the specified radius and center point.
  • Profile between two points: Allows the user to extract a single topographic profile between two points of the terrain model.

Selecting any of these options will call the matching command, see Annex 1: PE Module Commands for more details.
