    Improvement of the Stack Profile tool, and related documentation, as follows:

    - clarify in the documentation that this tool currently requires the section line to start within the bounds of one of the datasets to work correctly

    - add links from the 3D Analyst profile tool and LAS dataset profile tool documentation so that people know the Stack Profile tool is an option for generating profiles

    - enable the tool to generate a profile of the data without requiring the section line to start within the bounds of one of the datasets

    - allow the tool to add point data (similar to the LAS dataset profile tool, but all point data, not just LAS datasets) to the profiles, based on a buffer distance from the line

     

    A somewhat related post is linked below, but is not specific to the Stack Profile tool:

    To add to the request for improvement: allow this tool to section Terrains at the highest resolution. Please see the thread below for details:
