Toolbar : Draw  
      Menu : GeoTools Draw Enhanced, easy 3D points command.
Command line
GT_EASY3DPOINT 
GT_EASY3DPOINT allows 3d point objects to be created easily. It mimics the POINT command but allows the elevation value to be entered at each point pick prompt.



Toolbar : Draw  
      Menu : GeoTools Draw Draw embankment hatch slope pattern.
Command line : GT_EMBHATCH  

The GT_EMBHATCH command is use to draw a hatch pattern of alternating long and short lines of the kind shown in the figures below to represent an embankment slope pattern.

Embankment hatch slope pattern                   Embankment hatch slope pattern

The GT_EMBHATCH command requires two boundaries represented as lines or polylines. The hatch pattern is created as a series of long and short lines with the specified spacing in between them. The ratio of the long and short lines is expressed as a percentage length. This command works on linear straight lines only.

The 'Hatch as 3d' option will additionally ask for elevations of the embankments and create the hatch lines in 3d. This helps in better visualization while annotating the terrain in a 3d context.

Toolbar : Draw  
      Menu : GeoTools Draw Create vegetation cover line pattern
Command line : GT_VEGLINE 


Draw vegetation cover line patterns



The GT_VEGLINE command is used to create vegetation cover line patterns. The patterns are drawn as arced polylines and you can control the size, shape and pattern of arcs as shown in the dialog box above. You can save and restore the parameters used by this command in ASCII files.

Toolbar : Draw
      Menu : GeoTools Draw Draw a polyline by joining points in sorted order
Command line : GT_SORTEDPOLY

The GT_SORTEDPOLY command draws a polyline through selected points sorted in Positive X, Negative X, Positive Y or Negative Y direction.

Sort Order

Increasing X values : Choosing the option draws the polyline in increasing (positive) X direction.
Increasing Y values : Choosing the option draws the polyline in increasing (positive) Y direction.
Decreasing X values : Choosing the option draws the polyline in decreasing (negative) X direction.
Decreasing Y values : Choosing the option draws the polyline in decreasing (negative) Y direction.
