Break Line

Viewed 749 Times 0 Comments

In an elevation model, a break line is delineated along any terrain impacting features seen in an orthophoto such as road edges, ridges, and valleys.  When the spot heights are interpolated to create a surface model such as contours, the surface disruptions defined by the break lines are taken into account. The resulting surface is more detailed and true to life than without the use of break lines.
