While the profiles in DA 66 format are used for volume calculation between boundary lines, data type 54 is more suitable for volume determination according to Elling, since the 6-digit item designation is in columns 3 to 8 (column 9 may contain an additional alphanumeric index). The 6-digit position designation is supplemented by a descriptive text in a preceding line DA 53. With data type 54, it is permitted to store a point twice, in order to ensure the correct area calculation according to Elling. The data type 54 is often used in connection with the volume calculation according to Elling. Therefore there are zero profiles in data type 54, which are defined only by their station, but have no profile points.

A 55…Terrain profilesThe points to the left of the axis (distance negative) are first stored starting from the axis point, the distance being noted positive. Then the points to the right of the axis are stored.

DA 66…Datum pointsData type 66 is closely related to data type 54. It is required for volume determinations between boundary lines, which are specified as a 2-digit code number (KZ) in columns 8 to 9. The calculation position is defined in data type 68 by specifying the associated boundary lines (KZ top, bottom, left and right). The format DA 66 is used to store boundary lines in cross profiles. Each boundary line in the cross section has its own name. Boundary lines with the same name in different cross sections define a DTM.

Machine control transfers the desired points for automated profiling of the route.

Landxml…Transfers data for general machine control.Same points are connected lengthwise.

Format 001 (data type 001)…Passes a *.001 file for general machine control with:- station – y-coordinate (right value) – x-coordinate (high value) – z-coordinate (height) – elevation – rfd. Point number – if necessary. Distance of the point to the axisNote: When exporting, at the same time the file [Name of 001 file].001.C01 Generates. This can be used for the representation in the height plan.

– Y coordinate (right value) – X coordinate (high value) – Z coordinate (height)

The values must be separated by at least one space character each.

Create station table creates the stations of the cross sections and saves them in a file.
