Point to Profile Graph that Maintains Attribute Data

Question asked by kbo1771 on Jun 13, 2018

I am new to many of the 3D tools, but am looking to make profile graphs.  I have a GPS point file with northing, easting, elevation, and description code.  The points were collected along the length of a road in transects and the description code tells where each point was taken (edge of pavement, center line, etc).  I would like to make profile graphs from the GPS points, which I know can be done with 3D Analyst.  The problem is that I would like to classify the points in the profile graph by their description code. For example, I would like to be able to make a profile graph that shows the center line profile, the edge of pavement profile, etc.  Is there a way to link attribute data to a profile graph so I can classify by description code? Alternatively, is there a way to automatically calculate distances between points in a line, so I can export the data into Excel and manually create my profile graphs? Thanks!
