Alignment Report

Prints a listing of the Points near a string including the point offset and height differences.

Output File

The report will be written to this file which is created using the current job name.
The format is mostly fixed fields layout for easy reading but has commas after each data field so that it can be read into Excel as a CSV file for easy manipulation.

Incr_Dist Tolerance

The incremental distance bewteen each point is computed and compared to this value.
An error is displayed if the incremental distance exceeds the entered tolerance.


The Alignment String is A - B - ...
For the Point Pt1, the Offset distance is computed
The 'OffsetPt' is the nearest string point to the square offset IP from Pt1.

Exception Points
Some points (Pt2) do not strictly have a square offset IP on A-B or B-C.
In these cases it adopts the chainage of the nearest string point.
All points in the area of the orange dotted lines will be treated in this fashion.
