Hi, what do the black triangles in the terrain profile view signify? And further, what does the up facing and down facing of the triangle mean?

    Hi John,

    The black triangles signify markers that are very near or on the line that the terrain profile is drawn for. If the markers have labels, these would show up as well next to the triangles. Up vs down is just which side of the profile the markers get drawn on- for example, if the elevation profile is going down (losing elevation), then the triangle is drawn above so that the label doesn't obscure the line.
