Hi every one,
I'm writing a python script to calculate the volume of a polygon on raster using Cut/Fill tool and i see in some online service (for ex: DroneDeploy.com ...) for volume calculation there are 2 type of base plane: Best fit and lowest point:
Currently, i script seem to produce the result as same as DroneDeploy.com with their Best Fit base plane.
I want to writing another script to calculate volume with Lowest Point but don't know where to start with. You guys have any ideas about this problem?
Thanh you very much
are you looking for how to extend the base polyline parallel in the x,y direction and drop the z values of the upper polyline down to intersect with that plane? could be emulated with a 2d buffer of the lower step and a 3D intersect with the upper polyline. That would give you the back wall plane from which you could then determine the volume assuming you have the front and side planes
