# Analyzing Meshes¶

Very often there will be specific regions of a set of results that are the most of interest, and in those cases it can be helpful to pull out a particular region's data for visualization in a clearer way. The LineCrossSection and SurfaceCrossSection classes allow taking cross-sections of a mesh (or some other rasterizable object) along poly-lines drawn using the PolyDraw tool, letting you make an x/z or x/z/t plot from data laid out in x/y/z or x/y/z/t (respectively). These classes rasterize the data at a fixed resolution, and then sample the data at that resolution given the underlying polylines. The resolution may be defined in the units of the underlying coordinate system.
