Generating a 3D Path Profile from a Selected Line or Area Feature
If gridded elevation data (i.e. DEMs) is loaded, the Generate Path Profile From Line option will appear when a single line or area feature is selected. Selecting this option will display the Path Profile/Line of Sight dialog with a 3D path profile of the elevations under the path that the selected feature follows. In addition, if the selected line/area is a 3D feature with per-vertex elevations, those elevations will be displayed as a separate line on the path profile.
