Profile is a special case of 2D Segment Strip. Profiles represent plots of cross-sectional parameters against position of the cross-section. Because of that n-th point of a Profile always has n-th Base knot as its first coordinate. Another difference from general strips is that profile represents a function, which means that any vertical line intersects the profile not more than once.

Segments of a profile are called Axial Segments. Joint points in a profile are called Axial Points. Assuming that one has access to the axial Base, axial point can be determined by its index in the strip and its vertical coordinate.
