Hi All,

If I am staking out a line which has elevations at each end, what can I expect to see on the screen in relation to difference in height to the line from my measured point. I'm happy with chainage/distance along the line and the offset from the line. I would really like to know how much below or above the line I am at the distance or chainage shown.

Similarly if the same line is a breakline on a surface, loaded as a ttm file, is there a better way to do this.

Hi Doug,

If you have chosen to Stake out a line - will give you Chainage/Offset and the height above or below the line at the point you are at. Alternatively, if you have chosen to stake out a point on the line ( ie specific chainage &/or offset ) it will give you dimension for the height above or below the line at the chosen point, no matter where you are.

If you want to use a ttm/line combination, I have found the best way is to run the stake line and DTM modules concurrently, and switch between them using alt+tab or the trimble button. ( ie stake line until you are at desired location, switch to DTM for the height )

Hope this helps.

Hi Doug,

You can use DTM higts when staking out the line. Chose line - settings - (page3) use DTM higts.

Hope this helps,
