Spot Level Configuration

Spot Levels in LAND4

Landscaping projects can be quite complex, whether they’re part of a larger construction endeavour or a standalone project. LAND4 is designed to handle these complex challenges. It offers enhanced, direct and accurate control over your terrain models in ARCHICAD, and at the heart of it all is the LAND4 Spot Level.

Dynamic and interactive

Spot Levels in LAND4 are active and dynamic objects representing an (x,y,z)-coordinate set. They interact with other ARCHICAD and LAND4 objects, and you can easily modify, move, and edit them to achieve your desired terrain configuration.

Can be generated from existing data

Spot Levels can also be automatically generated from surveyor data, and meshes, which enables you to quickly create accurate terrain models based on existing data.

Spot Levels

A LAND4 Spot Level is a three-dimensional point, the representation of an (x,y,x)-coordinate set.



In 2D the Spot Level’s (x,y)-coordinates are indicated by a marker, e.g. a cross or a circle, and the z-value depicted as text.



Spot Levels can represent surveyor data depicting an existing terrain, or you can use them to design and generate surfaces.


Dynamic and interdependant

LAND4 Spot Levels are dynamic objects and can hold dynamic relations to other LAND4 objects. We say they show dependency. If modified and/or moved, related objects will adjust automatically.



The interpolation tools in LAND4 enables you to generate new Spot Spot Levels from existing ones. The tools are: Two-point Interpolation, Three-point Interpolation, Gradient Interpolation, and Constant Gradient Interpolation.


Fall Line

A Fall Line offers a visual representation of fall gradient and direction between two LAND4 Spot Levels. The line is a dynamic object and will automatically be updated if one or both related Spot Levels are moved.
