Import/Export Surface Analysis
Digitally signed app
The app exports surface analysis and corresponding properties to text by selecting the export analysis type and a surface with that type of analysis applied to it. Then, as needed it will import a selected text file (previously exported) and apply it to a new surface with the exported analysis information. It also has built in option to verify the style has been created correctly for viewing the analysis - alleviating the user from wondering why an analysis may not be appearing.
The app handles 5 different surface analysis types; Contour, Directional, Elevation, Slope, and Slope Arrows. Installing the app provides separate Import and Export commands for each analysis type, housed under one drop down ribbon button.

It gives you the ability to quickly copy an analysis to another drawing without going through a tedious hand entry routine. Plus you get a record in the form of an import/export file.
Does work with TIN and GRID surfaces which is good. Be better if I could apply the analysis to multiple surfaces at once though. Instead of one by one. Very cumbersome. I have 35 grid surfaces to update!
Works great. Constantly setting up surface analysis gets old, and I always miss something. This definitely streamlined the whole process.
