The Functional Surface toolset provides geoprocessing tools that perform analysis operations using features and various surface types.
Attributes features with spatial information derived from a surface.
Creates 3D features by interpolating z-values from a surface.
Computes the geometric intersection of 3D line features and one or more surfaces to return the intersection as segmented line features and points.
Creates a table and optional graph denoting the profile of line features over one or more multipatch, raster, TIN, or terrain surfaces.
Calculates the area and volume of the region between a surface and a reference plane.
The following tools that were available in the 3D Analyst toolbox prior to version 10.0 have been replaced by the enhanced Add Z Information geoprocessing tool.
Use the Add Z Information tool to calculate the surface length of each line input line feature based on a surface.
