The Pavement Profile/Cross-section window shows changes in the construction history along a route or portion of a route. Although the window for viewing Contracts is useful for reviewing individual pavement paving projects, it is not a convenient way to review the entire construction history of the roadway across multiple contracts. AgileAssets developed the Pavement Profile/Cross-section window to provide "one look" access to the entire history of construction activity.
The bottom of this window will display a "Section Profile (Longitudinal)" graph after clicking the icon. When you click the "Section Profile (Longitudinal)" graph, a "Cross-section" graph will be displayed on the right for the road section on which you clicked.
These graphs show a representation of the pavement structure within the limits set in the Location pane, which is shown in the upper left of the Pavement Profile/Cross-section window. Horizontal white lines differentiate between the various contracts that governed the application of the various pavement layers, while vertical white lines indicate finest partition breaks. Yellow horizontal lines with has marks indicate milling, where the amount of material removed is indicated by the width of the line.
