Hi,Jonathan:

I have found two written mistakes in the Techincal Documentation.

the first one is located in page 19.Actually formulation 11 is a cube equation,but in the documentation, it is written as "quadaratic equation".

the second one is loacted in page 20. this is a formulation error. the formulation 12 should be "ShapePctile = (Shape(Elev)-MinShape)/(MaxShape - MinShape)" not "ShapePctile = (Shape(Elev)-MinShape)-(MaxShape - MinShape)" . Am I right? right now,i have been studing your documentation. Have a nice weekend!

Hi Gary:

Thanks for the feedback.

This*Technical Documentation* has lacked a technical editor and I'm sure that glitches abound. That is an important reason for the "DRAFT" designation.

Of course you are right about the cubic equation. We had previously considered a quadratic equation but found it not to be sufficiently flexible and the old language persisted... (The formatting of the superscripts within the equation was faulty as well which I have fixed...)

And yes, the shape percentile equation was also misidentified. Thanks for your help in tightening up this document! I'll try to post an updated draft soon.

These errors have been fixed in the updated Tech Doc part of Release 6.0.1
