TerraScan: Draw Plane Section Tool


A new tool has been introduced to TerraScan’s View Laser tool box called “Draw plane section” (Figure 1). This tool can prove very useful when vectorizing planar features from a dataset.  Using the previous viewing options (Draw section, etc.), it can be difficult and tedious to manually draw in a required line work at the correct position. This new tool restricts the drawing of the line work to the plane equation of the points used to create the Plane Section view.  This feat is accomplished by the sampling of points on a surface and deriving a plane equation. TerraScan then determines which points fit to that plane and draws the section view of that plane.
