German term or phrase: überhöhter Geländeschnitt
In an expert's report on a problem with drilling and laying a pipeline, he says "Ihm [the writer] liegen entsprechende Procedere-Beschreibungen für die Durchführung der Arbeiten vor ... ein **überhöhter Geländeschnitt** mit eingetragenem Baugrundverhältnissen. Aufgestellet von X Ingenieurbüro." I presume Geländeschnitt is a cross-section or profile of the terrain, but what does "überhöht" say about it?

Thank you for the explanation. I think, however, that it's not called "heightened".
