I'm about to embark upon a design project for re-contouring landscape around my home. Assuming I get an accurate measurement of the landscape into the computer, and after I modify the landscape model to represent the proposed result, I want to produce the 'diff':
- A visual representation showing the volumes where dirt needs to be removed.
- A visual representation showing the volumes where dirt needs to be added.
- A report of the actual volume of dirt being moved (the sums of those volumes).
- A report of the delta (+/- of dirt that will be needed, or will need to be removed).
What software exists that can produce this report for me? I will prefer inexpensive software and software that is easy to learn quickly, but will accept any that meets the above criteria.
