One more method. If you are only interested in the profile place, points with a constant elevation around the center line shots. make a breakline of the centerline shots then create a surface. the surface will be accurate at the centerline only!. Then pull the profile. I teach surveying and use this method to create a profile and cross sections from level notes. As long as you create breaklines using "good" data then the sections and profiles will be accurate.
