3.6 How to generate an Elevation profile on Get3D Cloud

Generate an Elevation Profile

1. Open an 3D model

2. Select the 2D or 3D view. The 3D view is recommended in order to ensure the correct starting and ending points are picked.

3. Select [Line], then click the point at the desired location to start drawing, and double-click the point to end drawing.

4. On the right, on the details panel, click Generate elevation profile.

Measure on an Elevation profile

On the bottom panel, move the mouse along the curve to display the elevation and its location on the profile. Zoom in for more precision.

The horizontal axis represents the length of the line whose origin (0 value) corresponds to the first clicked point.The vertical axis corresponds to the elevation of the model.

The elevation is computed on the DSM for each pixel of theline. By default, the resolution is the ground sampling distance (GSD) of the 3D model.

Export an Elevation profile

In the Elevation profile panel, click Export excel to export the Elevation profile as a CSV file and save to desktop all its 3D points.

The following columns are exported:

X, Y: horizontal coordinates in the output coordinate system.

Z: vertical coordinate in the vertical output coordinate system.

Distance: ground distance from the origin of the profile.
