Use the Road Profile Viewer window to graph several types of data at once. In the window, you can select which columns are to be graphed. You then right-click in the Select Parameters to Display pane or select Actions and select Show Linear Diagram to open the Road View Linear Diagram window that shows graphs of the selected columns.

Note: The Road Profile Viewer window always uses the base linear referencing system regardless of what is selected in the Location Reference field on the left side of the browser window.

Panes in the Road Profile Viewer Window

The Road Profile Viewer window contains the following panes:

  • The Select Route pane: This pane contains a list of all routes in the road network. The route you select in this pane is what will be graphed in the Road View Linear Diagram window.
  • The Select Start & End Mile Points pane: This pane shows the route selected in the Select Route pane and its end points. You may graph a portion of the route by adjusting the mile points, direction, or lanes of the route.
  • The Select Parameters to Display pane: This pane identifies the data that will be graphed in the Road View Linear Diagram window. It shows one record for each table with data that can be graphed.
    In this pane:
    • To select whether the road segments for a table will be graphed, insert a check mark in the check box in the Select column.
    • To select by what column's values the road segments for a table will be colored on the graph, use the Color By right-click command.
    • To select whether the road segments for a table will be displayed on the graph in one line or expanded to a line for each column value, use the Expand By right-click command.
    • To further constrain the portion of the route to be graphed, use the Edit Scope right-click command.
    • To display the Road View Linear Diagram window, select the Show Linear Diagram right-click command to view graphs of the selected columns.

Actions and Right-click Context Menu Commands

When you right-click or select Actions in the Linear Diagram pane, a menu is displayed. This menu contains the following special commands (in addition to the common commands):

  • Color By: This command displays a new window, from which you select the column whose values will color the line graph, with each value having a different color. Select the No Column entry in the drop-down list when you don't want to color by any column's values.
  • Edit Scope: This command displays a new window, from which you set further constraints on the portion of the route to be graphed. These constraints are based upon the data pertinent to the route. This window has the same capabilities as the Filter window available from reports.
  • Expand By: This command displays a new window, from which you select the column whose values will expand the line graph, with each value being on a different line. Select the No Column entry in the drop-down list when you don't want the column expanded.
  • Set Description Column: This command displays a dialog box, in which you may select the column that contains the descriptive information for what will be graphed in the linear diagram.
  • Show Linear Diagram: This command displays a new window, which shows the road segments for the selected tables in a linear diagram graph. Across the top of the graph is a scale showing each mile to graph for the route. Down the left side is a list of the tables for which road segments are to be graphed. In the body of the graph are a series of parallel lines, one for each table (or, if the Expand By capability is used, then one for each selected column's value). Each line is colored by the column value as selected using the Color By command.

Additionally, when you right-click a road segment in the body of the graph in the Linear Diagram window, a menu is displayed that contains the Show Information command. This command opens a new window that shows the data pertinent to the road segment which you right-clicked.
