I am looking for some help in displaying depths of a combined surface. I can give the client cut and fill grid ticks, but they want a map, so to speak. I have an existing surface. I have a post dredging surface. I can run the volumes and create a comparison surface. Now what I need is to display the combined surface in such a way that you can easily see, this is the area where 0 - 0.5 feet was removed, this this the area where 0.5 -1.0 feet was removed, and so on and so forth. I am sure can be acomplished, but I am having trouble figuring it out on my own. any and all help will be greatly appreciated.
If you haven't already, create a volume surface and change it's style to show Elevation Bands. The bands would show the different cut/fill depths
thanks for the help...that is what I want to do, but I do not know how...I have a comparison surface, but elevation bands are not one of the options in the display tab...do I need to create a new style...???...
The style just refers to the elevation bands as Elevation see image below.
If you really dont need a colorful map, you can just contour the volume surface and label the contours. This is how i have done the same type of map often.
Other useful information:
The default seperation can be controlled in the analysis tab. i usually change my style to range interval, with the interval set to 1'. You also use this tab to set the default color scheme.
I can get it to display now, but it seems to disreguard my criteria...I keep setting it to "range interval" but it does not change the display...then when I try to change the surface properties again, it is set to "number of ranges" again...do not know what I am doing wrong...
There are two areas that can control this information. The one i showed previously is the surface style and there is also one in the surface properties, as shown below. I believe that the one in surface properties will always overide any settings in the style.
