Derive Layer CS - Merge - Cross Section Software Help



Derive layer feature is one of the important features in ESurvey CADD section module, Derive layer means,create a new layer data from the reference of existing data.

For example,In the sample cross section shown below, hatching area is indicating the filling area is not correct as Layer 23 data just indicates topmost values of a layer and does not have levels to match with the slope. Derive CS Merge layer is introduced to make new layer combine data of 2 existing layer. In this example, Layer 23 and Layer 21 are merged together to derive layer 41, which can give correct area calculation.
