ISurface.GetProfile Method

Returns a polyline with z values interpolated from the surface.

[Visual Basic .NET]
Public Sub GetProfile ( _
    ByVal pShape As IGeometry, _
    ByRef ppProfile As IGeometry, _
    [ByRef pStepSize As Object] _
public void GetProfile (
    IGeometry pShape,
    ref IGeometry ppProfile,
    ref object pStepSize
HRESULT GetProfile(
  IGeometry* pShape,
  IGeometry** ppProfile,
  Variant* pStepSize
pShape [in]

pShape is a parameter of type IGeometry* ppProfile [out]
ppProfile is a parameter of type IGeometry** pStepSize [in, optional]
pStepSize is a parameter of type VARIANT*

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.


Takes an input polyline or polygon, interpolates heights for it from the surface, and outputs the result as 3D geometry.

The input geometry should be polyline or polygon based. Portions of the input not falling within the interpolation zone of the surface will be clipped. A Null pointer ('Nothing' in Visual Basic) is returned when the input falls entirely off the surface.

If specified, the input geometry will be densified by the stepSize. This takes place before interpolating heights from the surface. The densification ensures no two vertices are spaced more than stepSize apart.
