Is it possible to convert cross sections in xns files to XYZ format (Coordinate X - Coordinate Y - Elevation for every surveyed point) ? Since the cross-sections go along with network through River name, TopoID and chainage, and every chainage-point may has a coordinate; so I think we could calculate coordinate for every elevation surveyed point. Any tip for this problem?

You can extract the XY coordinates as well as Z elevation for points with markers using the res11read.exe tool.

This tool is installed in the installation folder, and can extract some data from a MIKE 11 result file. To run this tool, you have to type the res11read.exe command from a DOS prompt: this will give you the various options available for extracting data from a result file.

This res11read.exe tool is also described in MIKE 11's manual.

It can't however return the XYZ data for all points given in a cross-section in the *.xns11 file.

Let us know if you need further help to use it.

Best regards,

thanks for your information! Unfortunately that tool can only export coordinates at grid points + levels of bottom, left & right banks. So I'm writing a software reading text files exported from "Cross-section Editor" (Export Raw Data...), then calculating coordinate  for each point in the x-sections based on distance & the left-right's XY coordinates. Of course the left-right's XY has to be applied in the origin xns file before exporting. I also had to import nwk & xns files into Mike11-GIS project to update the coordinate information...
Here's the software I wrote. Focus on XYZ data, so some parameters of the cross-section maybe ignored.
This is the software's screenshot:
