The Linkless Corridor

I’ve been messing around with some commercial site and pond corridors the past 24 hours or so, and I was trying to figure out a way to get a simple breakline/feature line assembly.  I asked Nick if a Marked Point would work… I was thinking that just an assembly made from the Marked Point subassembly run along an alignment and profile might do the trick.  He said it should be ok.  So I tried it.

My original thought was to use it as a flowline in a parking lot or similar circumstance, but just for kicks i ran it through my stream from last night.

Suddenly, bells started going off.  This is much easier to digest than lots of complex targets, and I see it being quite useful in commerical site corridors.  There are no targets.  Just my alignment baselines and profiles.

I will be writing more on this subject- but take a look at this corridor built from last night’s stream…


The TIN isn’t quite as smooth as the full blown link corridor…. but the design effect is almost identical, and far less work to build.

Ok.  James has some real work for me to do.  Back to the word processor.
