how Breaklines are used in terrain editor?

Is there any way to import or to create breaklines with Terrain Editor (TE)? Or any manual that i can find the way to clear the road from the distortion that created from the moving items on road.

Re: how Breaklines are used in terrain editor?

Hello,

 

You can digitize breaklines in TE stereo window by selecting Breakline tool in Terrain Editing Panel under “Terrain Editing Tools” . You also can import breaklines in 3D shapefile format (*.shp). You will see Importer/Exproter if you scroll down in Terrain Editing Panel-> Breakline Tab.

 

Please go to IMAGINE Help Tab->Workflows. Click Photogrammetry Workflows scroll down and under Terrain Editor Workflows choose Editing a DTM. You will find workflows regarding editing terrain including using breaklines.

 

Also note that in each dialog you can click Help button for detailed information about a specific tool. Go to Terrain Editing panel in TE click Breakline Tab and click Help and read about breakline options.

 

Best Regards,

Re: how Breaklines are used in terrain editor?

Hello,
I tried from the help to find out how i can import a break line shape file. 

 

First i load a DSM and in Terrain editing panel at Terrain Edit Tools the option of brake line is disabled (as you can see at the photo) so i tried to find a solution at Help and i found this as a tip: 

 

Tip: The options to import and export breaklines are disabled if a DEM is loaded in the Terrain Editor workstation.

 

and then i couldn't find a way to import 3D shape files. Then i tried without loading the DEM but every option was unable

Hello,

 

If you have loaded a raster DEM in Terrain Editor, you cannot use the breakline tool, it will be disabled. However you can use geomorphic tools. If you have a TIN format terrain such as Terramodel TIN (*.pro) or LTF (*.ltf, *.ltfx), you can load it in TE to digitize breaklines. You can also convert a raster DEM to a TIN using Terrain Prep Tool.
