Command Description

The Pavement Conformance Report command is a pavement conformance reporting tool that supports measuring vertical, perpendicular, cross-fall, pavement thickness and edge data. Various options for summary display and an option to visualise output in plan-view prior to creating report.

At the top of the command pane there is the ability to load and save a tolerance setting file. Once you have populated the command with the appropriate tolerances and setting for a report you can save it in a file that can be reloaded in the future.

Vertical tab

As-built points Select As-built points to use in the report.
Design Mode Choose the Mode to use - Surface or Strings to conform the as-built points against.
Surface Choose a surface from the list.
Strings

 This will create a surface projected between the left and right strings.
Control - Select a line to use to calculate perpendicular to, between the left and right string.
Left – Select the left string to use for levels.
Right – Select the right string to use for levels.

Measure perpendicular Check if you want the points to be tested perpendicular to the Design.
Design offset Enter the level distance from the design. This is vertical or perpendicular depending on the previous setting.
Alignment Select the control alignment to report chainage and offset. This is optional but must be used for computing XFall and Edge conformance report types. Option to change the selection highlight color and to select line from Reference files.
Chainage grouping Enter the distance to use to group points on the report.
Restrict chainage
Start chainage
End chainage
Check if you want chainages to be restricted between the Start Chainage and End Chainage you specify.
Tolerances
Upper
Lower
Enter the tolerance values to check and report against. Note that the tolerance direction will be applied the same as the measure mode. ie, if you select perpendicular then the tolerances are also applied perpendicularly.
Include ID’s Check if you want as-built point IDs included in the report
Include Codes Check if you want as-built point Codes included in the report
Include easting/northing Check if you want to report the easting and northing of the as-built point.
Show non-conformance errors Check if you want errors to be included in the body of the report.

 

XFall tab

Include XFall Check if you want to include cross-fail checking in the report.
XFall tolerance Enter the cross-fall tolerance to report against from design to as-built.
Maximum chainage delta Enter the maximum distance within which points will be checked (avoids irrelevant checks).
Minimum offset delta Enter the minimum offset distance between points to be checked for Xfall.
Direction

Choose the direction you want the cross fall to be reported relative to the alignment string.
Relative to Control = Normal use for Road reporting. Reported left and right of alignment.
Left to Right = Report all cross falls left to right with chainage
Right to Left = Report all cross falls right to left with chainage

 

Thickness tab

Include Thickness Check if you want thickness checking on the road.
Bottom surface Select a surface.
Minimum thickness
Maximum thickness
Enter the tolerances to check against.
Show non-conformance errors Check if you want errors to be included in the body of the report.

 

Edges tab

Include edge report Check if you want edge checking on the road.
Left alignment Select a left alignment string. Option to change the selection highlight color and to select line from Reference files.
Left extent
Right extent
Enter the extents you want to use to search for the points on either side of the left alignment string.
Left tolerance
Right tolerance
Enter the tolerances to check against for the left alignment.
Right alignment Select a right alignment string. Option to change the selection highlight color and to select line from Reference files.
Left extent
Right extent
Enter the extents you want to use to search for the points on either side of the right alignment string.
Left tolerance
Right tolerance
Enter the tolerances to check against for the right alignment.
Check vertical on edge point Check if you want edge points to also report vertically.

 

Summaries tab

Select header summaries to include Check the summary fields you want to include in the top of the report.

 

Details tab

Title Enter a title for the report (for example, the project name).
Custom image file Select a “png” or “bmp” image file to be added to the top right corner of the report. E.g., company Logo or project image. This only appears if you have a Title filled out.
Description Enter a description for the report.
Reference number Enter a survey job reference number.
Author Enter the name of the report's author.
Custom Header Enter a user defined heading
Custom Text Enter a user defined text to go beside the Custom header

 

Formatting tab

Colors

Choose the colors to be used in the Excel Report.
Out of tolerance
Missing data
Summary background
Title background
Reset to Defaults

 

Visualization tab

Create visualization layers Check if you want conformance information to be displayed on layers in TBC.
Layer prefix Enter a prefix to add to layer names.
Text Height Select the height of the text to be displayed on screen.
Text Style Select the text style for the text displayed on screen.
Gap This is the distance in metres that the insertion point of the text will be right/left of the node it is created for.
Draw leader line with gap Check this to add a leader line when a gap has been used.
Clear visualization layers Check if you want the layers to be cleared before adding new data.
Include data prefix Check this to add a text prefix to each data value that is visualised.
Data and prefixes Check the boxes for the data you need to see on screen and adjust the prefixes that are used.
  • Survey – As-built survey levels of point.
  • Design – Calculated design levels for point.
  • Conformance – Conformance delta, design vs Survey.
  • Thickness – Thickness conformance value.
  • XFall – Xfall value from preceding point.
