Tick Line (TicLin)
Type: Interactive/Batch Application
Places tick lines on existing line(s).
Ticks existing lines by placing tick lines at user-defined intervals. User parameters include tick distance left and right of the base line. The elevations of the tick lines are interpolated based on the points before and after the tick line.
Parameters and Local Commands
The following parameters are used when ticking a line in interactive and batch modes. Pressing button 7 allows the entry of these parameters.
Layer for tick lines (TICLAY=)
Defines the layer in which the new tick lines will be placed.
Tick mode (TICMOD=)
Defines the method to use for line ticking. Options are “Distance” (TICMOD=0) and “Tick line ends only” (TICMOD=1). The Distance setting ticks a line each Tick distance from the start of the line. The “Tick line ends only” ticks only the beginning and end of the line.
Tick distance (TICDIS=)
Defines the distance between tick lines. This parameter is entered in ground units.
Tick length left (TICLEF=)
Defines the tick line length to the left of the base line looking upstream. This parameter is entered in ground units.
Tick length right (TICRIG=)
Defines the tick line length to the right of the base line looking upstream. This parameter is entered in ground units.
Layer of lines to tick (SEALAY=)
Defines the layers to search when ticking lines in batch mode. A number line may be entered here.
Workspaces to consider (WS= or WSTC=)
The current workspace (WS=0) or all open workspaces (WS=1) may be searched when ticking lines.
Runs tick line in batch mode. This is normally used when running Tick Line from a macro. The following is a sample macro that starts Tick Line, sets parameters, and runs the application:
SEALAY=1-10 23 25
NOTE: Lines in layers that are turned off will not be considered even if they are specified.
