Cross Sections

Cross sections have been added as a licensed option into GIS in VDV


Cross Section icon

Create a Cross-Section Icon like any other icon and enable the Cross-Section feature.

Select Series Type, Colour, and Axis.

When an icon that has Cross-Section enabled is selected in the GIS setup it will be included in the Cross Section graph.

Below are examples of the Icon setup for Leveling point and the piezometer.

GIS map Setup

In the GIS Setup make sure the Cross-Section is enabled so that all CS data and graphs will be visible in the GIS View.


Now it is time to add items to create the Cross-Section. Navigate to the Layers menu and click the + Layer button and add a tunnel layer.

The tunnel layer menu opens and has the following properties.

Units: Metric or Imperial, depth of tunnel in eighter.

Diameter: Tunnel diameter

Elevation Property: The tunnel depth in the layer can eighter be a Z value or a feature property in the layer file.

Choose the style of the map itself: Border Colour, Border Width, Colour, Opacity.


Next, add data to the Cross-Section by going to the Marker menu

It's possible to add both Variables and Displacement Markers.

Select Variable and an Icon that suites that data for all the markers needed for the Cross-Section and add them to the GIS Map.


If the Cross-Section is enabled that will be an icon visible in the view.

The Cross-Section menu will expand and from there it's possible to create a new Cross-Section or load existing ones.

Click the green + icon to create a new Cross-Section, then click the map to draw a straight line between 2 points. Select radius and all the markers inside the bounding box are included in that Cross-Section.

Then simply click generate and a Cross-Section Graph pops up.
