80005_Arc_graphicsbuttonThe ArcEQuIS add-in for ArcGIS Pro includes the Graphics by Location button, which can be found in the top ribbon of ArcGIS Pro under the ArcEQuIS tab, in the EnviroInsite Graphics section. This button allows users to click points on the map to dynamically generate EnviroInsite graphics such as boring logs. The ability to generate strip logs and fence diagrams will be added in future builds.

 

 

Boring Logs

 

Prerequisites

 

Before generating boring logs from ArcGIS Pro, users need to have the following prerequisites in place (in addition to those required for ArcGIS Pro and the ArcEQuIS add-in):

1.Install a .pdf viewer such as Adobe Acrobat Reader on the computer running ArcGIS Pro.

2.Install EnviroInsite (and prerequisites) on your EQuIS Enterprise server as detailed in the EQuIS Enterprise section of the help page here. Note that this will not require an EnviroInsite license. The EnviroInsite_Enterprise_package_x64_{build #}.zip file will be available on the EarthSoft Community Center Downloads Dashboard, regardless of whether an EnviroInsite license has been purchased. EarthSoft hosted clients (those with an EQuIS Enterprise site hosted by EarthSoft, generally with an equisonline.com URL) can contact support@EarthSoft.com to have EnviroInsite installed on their EQuIS Enterprise server.

3.Create a boring log template named “EIBoringLogTemplate” or use the example EIBoringLogTemplate.xml. This example template can be modified in EnviroInsite, but the naming is required as is: “EIBoringLogTemplate.xml”.

4.Store the EIBoringLogTemplate.xml in the EQuIS database by uploading it to DT_FILE via the EQuIS Professional Docs and Photos Form or the Enterprise Explorer Widget.

 

Generate Boring Logs

 

To generate boring logs in ArcEQuIS, use the following steps:

1.In ArcGIS Pro, open a new or existing Map project and connect to an EQuIS facility.

2.Use the Add Data button under the ArcEQuIS tab to add a Locations Point or Polygon layer to the map.

3.Navigate to the Graphics by Location button (under the ArcEQuIS Tab). Click the drop-down arrow and select Boring Log:

 
80005_Arc_ribbon_BH
 

4.The cursor should change to this crosshair 80005_Arc_crosshair. Click a point to generate a .pdf boring log for that point:

 

80005_Arc_BHpane

 

Note: If there are multiple overlapping points or you are zoomed out far enough that multiple points are rendered as a single point, click that point to generate boring logs for all the points there. If there are multiple overlapping points or you are zoomed out far enough that multiple points are rendered as a single point, click that point to generate boring logs for all the points there.

 

Boring log pdfs will automatically open when they are finished being generated. By default they will be saved to the following location:

C:\Users\[Your User Name]\Documents\ArcGIS\Projects\[Your ArcPro Project Name]\EQuISDownloads

 

Boring logs will be saved with the following naming convention:

[SYS_LOC_CODE]_BoringLog.pdf

 

Note that if a boring log is generated for the same point multiple times (without changing the file location or name of the existing log), the new log will overwrite the existing log.

 

5.To exit the Graphics by Location tool, select another tool such as the Explorer tool, available under the Map tab on the Top Ribbon.

 

Strip Logs

 

This option is a placeholder for future functionality. As of the 7.20.2 Build of ArcEQuIS, this button is available under Graphics by Location but is not currently functional. Click this option to generate boring logs for selected points.

 

Fence Diagrams

 

This option is a placeholder for future functionality. As of the 7.20.2 Build of ArcEQuIS, this button is available under Graphics by Location but is not currently functional. Click this option to also generate boring logs for selected points.
