Profiling Tool added as Standard

October, 2021

One of our most popular mapping programs, “the Profiling Tool”, has been added to the FarmMap4D Standard product.

The unique topographic tool allows you to overlay a directional line anywhere across your mapped property and calculate a vertical cross-section of the path making it very useful in calculating new or existing pipeline and fence infrastructure.

Once an elevation profile has been established it makes it easy to calculate appropriate pump and pipe size for water infrastructure and length and type of fencing saving substantial time and money in the process.

The Profiling Tool becomes very powerful when combined with our NRM Terrain Base imagery, which allows you to see elevation in different colours.

The colours stretch within a set data frame highlighting local differences in elevation and making it useful to run the best line of sight for profiling analysis.

This is all now available on our FarmMap4D Standard product adding a powerful tool – -particularly for water management and property infrastructure line planning.
