The plan view is a graphical guidance screen that displays an overhead view of the design terrain. The plan view is useful for helping you navigate around the site, and for positioning your machine on designs.

The plan view is only available for systems under the following conditions:

  • One or more 3D sensors are installed and operating

  • A site plan file, at least, is loaded

If it is available, the plan view is the first guidance view that is displayed on the screen of the display after start-up.

Plan View Information

The information that is displayed in the plan view varies according to the design type that is loaded.




Illustration 1g01429004

The plan view displays the following types of information:

Horizontal alignment features:

  • Design boundary

  • Site map

  • Background linework

  • Roading alignments

  • Sloping surface alignments

  • 3D lines

  • the selected horizontal guidance line and offset

Note: The horizontal alignment features are created on the design with AccuGrade Office Software.

Avoidance zones:

  • Site

  • Design

Map recording information:

  • Coverage

  • Ripper

  • Radio coverage

  • Terrain map

  • Cut/Fill

Machine information

  • Machine type

  • Focus point

  • guidance point(s)

Note: The plan view shows the boundary around the design surface as a light gray line. If a design does not contain boundary information, no boundary appears.

Road Design

The plan view of a road design file shows a master alignment which, unlike a sloping surface master alignment, can be straight or curved. A road file can also contain additional road alignments. Additional road alignments are arranged on either side of the master alignment. Road alignments appear as black lines.

Sloping Surface Design

If a sloping surface design is loaded, the plan view shows the centerline as a straight black line.

3D Lines design

A 3D line is displayed in the color that the 3D line was designed with. When a 3D line is selected for both horizontal and vertical guidance, the 3D line appears red. When a 3D line is selected for vertical guidance and a different line is selected for horizontal guidance, the 3D line appears blue.

You can also change the width of the design surface defined by a 3D line when selecting the line. The extents of this design surface are displayed in the plan view with a light gray line.

Plan View rotation

The plan view can be configured to rotate with the machine or the plan view can be configured to keep the linework pointing in the direction of north.

When the plan view is set to rotate, both the linework and the machine icon rotate to keep the machine pointing toward the top of the screen. The following two screens illustrate the plan view rotating as the machine turns right.




Illustration 2g01429226

As the machine continues to turn right, the plan view rotates 90° to the left. The machine keeps pointing toward the top of the screen as shown in Illustration 3.




Illustration 3g01429228

When the plan view is not configured to rotate, the linework remains fixed in the one direction. The machine icon rotates around the plan view as the machine moves across the design surface. Illustration 4 shows how the machine turns and moves toward the bottom of the plan view.
