Symbol Fill (SymFill)
Type: Interactive/Batch Application
Fills a user-defined polygon with symbols or spot elevations.
Specified spacing is used to place symbols or spot elevation or elevation text labels in a user-defined polygon. If the area has been modeled using DTM, the points placed may be draped onto the current DTM surface.
Point type (TYPE=)
Defines the type of point that will be placed. Options are symbol, spot elevation, or text elevation, a text label of the elevation using decimal justification.
Grid resolution (GRIRES=)
Defines the grid resolution to fill line.
Grid Offsets (GRIOFSX=, GRIOFSY=)
Defines X,Y distances to add to the current grid value when filling. They are commonly used when filling an area that has already been filled to place new points in between existing ones.
Text Offsets (TEXOFSX=, TEXOFSY=)
Defines the distance from the grid point to place the text label. These values are normally non-zero when spot elevations are being placed.
Decimal Accuracy (DECACC=)
Defines the number of places to the right of the decimal point to display for elevation text labels.
Fill direction (FILDIR=)
Specifies the order in which points are placed within the polygon. Options are East ascending, East descending, East meander, North ascending, North descending and North meander.
The elevations for symbols, spot elevation or text placed by Symbol Fill are obtained from the current Z Source. If the DTM engine is active, the elevations will be based on the current DTM surface if the Z Source is set accordingly.
