Other than Digital Terrain Method (DTM) and Grid Method, software also provides End Area Method for earthworks volume calculation.
This method is only available after DTM analysis has been done.
To calculate Earthwork Cut/Fill volume using ‘End Area Method’, go to Earthwork>> Cut/Fill>> End Area.
Select Input and click once at the input screen to activate snapping.
Draw a cut line as a reference line of the End Area Method and insert cut line interval.
Once the line interval has been inserted, locate the range of cut sections. Select the cut sections generated and click Calculate.
The “End Area Method” earthworks calculation would be generated at Excel Report.
