Create Ridge Slope

Interpolated Ridge Slope

The LAND4 Create Ridge Slope tool enables you to interpolate a Ridge Slope based on:

Dynamic object and relations

The generated Ridge Slope will be a dynamic object and a child of the LANDSurface and Ridge Line. If one of the parents are moved, elevated, or otherwise updated, the Ridge Slope will be updated accordingly.

Generate Ridge Slope

To generate a Ridge Slope:

  1. Select Ridge Line and LANDSurface.
  2. Go to:
    • LAND4/Group Palettes/Show Ridge Line Palette, or
    • LAND4 Palette/Ridge Lines.
  3. Press Create Ridge Slope button.
  4. Enter Fall Percentage in pop-up Fall Palette.
  5. Click on the side of the Ridge Line where you want to place your Ridge Slope.

After interpolation

A Ridge Slope is a projected line. It indicates where a Ridge Line’s slope would meet a LandSurface based on a set Fall Percentage.

Ridge Slopes on both sides of Ridge Line

You can generate Ridge Slopes on both sides of a Ridge Line. Differing Fall Percentages can be used for each of the two sides.

The red dependency lines at the end of the Ridge Slope show the relation between the lines and the neighboring Spot Levels used in the triangulation.
