Displaying and Annotating Alignments

As you will find with nearly every design component that you create for a land development project, creating the design is only half the job. Alignments serve as the basis for further design of a linear feature, but they also serve as a means of expressing the geometry of the feature to reviewers and contractors. The alignment by itself does not tell this story in enough detail and must therefore be stylized and annotated appropriately. In addition, alignments often serve as baselines used to express the location of other features within the project.

In this chapter, you’ll learn how to use various styles and annotations to convey important information about alignments.
