    Stationing goes along the bottom in the form you have so indicated. Elevations go along the side (vertically).

    i am working on this plate and do not understand how you will get the driveway profile. I have set up my grid and dont know whereto go from here. I see the examples of the right way but i dont know why or how you got to that and i dont wanna just assume and draw it.

    The driveway profile is created by plotting the elevations of the contour lines where they cross the centerline of your driveway.

    I'll have to take a look at the instructions to see what P-F is asking for. I vaguely recall they did not provide much in the way of detail/explanation which make it understandably confusing. Have you tried contacting an instructor for some clarification? You paid good money for the course so you might as well get your money's worth right?

    You are familiar with what a "section" is right? A section cut through the driveway would be in the north/south direction I believe. It would have to show the extent of the new contours at the very least.
