Chapter 13. Transportation - Sections and Quantities

In this chapter, you create design sections and calculate quantities for corridor models. The first step in the process is to create sample lines at intervals along the alignment. Sample lines are organized in a sample line group and are required for creating design cross sections and calculating quantities.

When you create sample lines, you attach section data to the sample lines. The section data you attach can then be viewed in the design cross sections or used to calculate quantities for the corridor model. You can attach surface, corridor surface, corridor, material, and pipe network section data to the sample lines.

After you create the sample lines, you calculate quantities for the corridor ...
