Profile measure graph of slope steepness?

Hi - I was wondering if it would be possible to add a feature where the profile graph could have slope angle on the Y-axis, and distance on the X-axis. Basically, graph the color coded steepness measurements that appear along the bottom of the profile graph.

The site used to be able to do this, but is broken and unsupported. And I found that type of graph very useful for describing the steepness of the slope(s) along a line. I've attached a screencap of an example.

    Hi David,

    I know it's not the same thing, but if you right click on the line you've drawn and hit terrain statistics you'll see a nice visual representation of the slope angle. I'l add this idea to the list of potential features.

    Thank you for using CalTopo,
