Calculating slope and facing angle of best fit plane using DEM or TIN

Discussion created by berrymancp24 on Mar 22, 2013
Hi All,

I have been tasked with finding a way to make a few calculations using a DEM or TIN in an ArcServer application, these calculations are to Draw a line and calculate the slope absed on the DEM or TIN, and 2 is to draw a polygon and calculate the facing angle and slope of a best-fit plane through that surface.

I know it has to do with spatial analyst and some sort of geoprocessing service, could anyone help me out here?
