    In version 2.4, the performance of the Polygon Volume GP tool has improved significantly.

    Since we calculate a lot of volumes for huge areas with a lot of polygons, the performance of the tool is essential for us:

     

    To follow up earthmoving works, we want to see the value of volume below a plane and above a plane. Currently, I need to run the tool twice to get both values for each polygon. Once with the parameter 'Calculate above the plane', a second time with the parameter 'Calculate below the plane'.  I would like to have the option to choose 'Calculate Both'.

     

    Advantages:

    1. The user only needs to run the tool once

    2. Most importantly, this could make the tool perform even better: The tool can collect the part of the TIN to cover the polygon, and make immediately 2 calculations on this.
