The Downhole Interval plot is used to post soil classification, descriptions, or other properties. These intervals may be filled with hatch patterns based on the contents of the underlying data fields or the text contents of the data fields may be simply plotted. The former are typically used as a visual representation of changes in soil classifications, while the text contents are used to convey text descriptions of various kinds.
For non-EQuIS users, the source of data for these downhole plots is the Borings tab or table. The standard data fields or any optional data fields created by the user in the Borings tab are selectable for plotting.
For EQuIS users, selectable data sources include both DT_LITHOLOGY and DT_SAMPLE_PARAMETER. Any one of the the following fields from DT_LITHOLOGY may be selected: REMARK_1, REMARK_2, MATERIAL_NAME, GEO_UNIT_CODE_1, GEO_UNIT_CODE_2, GEO_UNIT_CODE_3, GEO_UNIT_CODE_4, GEO_UNIT_CODE_5, MOISTURE, PERMEABLE, COLOR, OBSERVATION, GRAINSIZE, ODOR, CUSTOM_FIELD_1, CUSTOM_FIELD_2, CUSTOM_FIELD_3, CUSTOM_FIELD_4, or CUSTOM_FIELD_5 or the contents of DT_SAMPLE_PARAMETER.PARAM_VALUE. For DT_SAMPLE_PARAMETER values, the user is presented with the full set of DT_SAMPLE_PARAMETER.PARAM_CODE values to choose from.
Double-click on the desired downhole interval field to add it to the report. Once in the report, double-click the downhole interval object to open the Downhole Interval Data dialog box. Modify the Options tab, Format tab, Fill Style tab, Fill Style2 tab, and Text tab as desired. Click the OK button to save changes.
