Hello to All,
I’d like to ask how I can measure the area of a region, defined on a TIN surface. ( i.e. the area of the bounded topographic terrain )
Thank you in advance!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Select the Surface, right click, select Surface Properties. On the Statistics tab expand Extended. You get 2D & 3D surface area.
Thank you for the answers,
but I would like to know whether the measured area is the area of the terrain, not the plane one bounded from the boundary in horizontal direction...

How are you seeing that as being different from the 3D area?
Not quite identical. But very close.
I didn't have a surface in the drawing I had open. So I just drew 2 3D polylines and created a surface using them as breaklines. There wasn't much of an elevation difference.
Thought that's what you did.....here's one I'm working on...
I am tackling similar problem as the topic oroginator, hence my post here.
I have a project of the roundabout, in which I have created a surface. It contains pavement, footpaths, verges and earthworks. Everything within one corridor.
What I need to find is the area of the road only. Without footpaths, verges, ect.
Tho there is a function which I can use in Civil £d to obtain just an area of the road?
