Export Cross Section XYZ values

If you used the cross sections point cloud task in LP360 to automate the generation of your cross sections your only output options were Shapefile and DXF. What if I need those cross section XYZ values in another format.

Option 1:

Use the manual profile export available in the profile view to export your profiles. The current supported file formats are 3D Polyline Shapefiles, AutoCAD DXF, MicroStation DGN, and ASCII XYZ files.

Option 2:

  1. Use the cross sections point cloud task to generate automatic profiles into a Shapefile according to your desired settings.
  2. Convert the vertices of the profile lines to points using the ArcToolbox -> Data Management Tools -> Features -> Feature Vertices to Points tool.
  3. Add the shape geometry to the attribute table using the ArcToolbox -> Data Management Tools -> Features -> Add XY Coordinates tool.
  4. Use one of the ArcToolbox conversion tools to convert the point Shapefile to the desired format. Or open the DBF from the point Shapefile in Excel and save to the desired format.
