Water Level and Particle Tracking Map

Report Name: Water Level and Particle Tracking Map

 

Description: The Water Level and Particle Tracking Map Form generates a map featuring the following elements:

1.Basemap – For no map display, specify 'None'. Three basemap styles are available, drawn from online map or photo image sources. Visit linked sites for details.

Imagery (ArcGIS Aerial Photo)

Street Map (ArcGIS Map)

Topographic (ArcGIS Topo)

The base map boundaries (minimum and maximum northing and easting values) are initialized using the values of DT_FACILITY.X_MIN, DT_FACILITY.X_MAX, DT_FACILITY.Y_MIN, and DT_FACILITY.Y_MAX. If these DT_FACILITY fields are not populated, then the values are based on DT_COORDINATE.X_COORD and DT_COORDINATE.Y_COORD. If the values are in a latitude-longitude coordinate system, they will be converted to the display coordinate system.

Note the horizontal extent for the data query is not accessible from the Form parameter menu.

2.Posted Values – Measured water levels are posted within boxes connected by a leader to the sample locations.

3.Symbol Plots – Measured water levels are represented using symbols that are color-coded to indicate the concentration at the symbol location.

4.Contours – Contours of measured water levels are drawn based on values interpolated from measured values onto points on a rectangular grid. These contours may be either simple lines or with fill between the drawn lines.

 

This form report requires that sample interval depths and elevations be associated with all measured data per instructions in this article.

 

The location of individual components such as north arrow, map scale, legends, and posted values may be modified by dragging the items within the map interface and dropping them in their new locations.

 

Once the form has been generated with the mapped content, users may select Tracks from the Form menu. This presents them with the opportunity of clicking points that describe a polyline on which track start points will be distributed. On completion of the polyline definition, users should click the right button, at which point the tracks will be generated.

 

Maps are plotted in UTM coordinates. EnviroInsite determines the coordinate system to be used based on the value in the EQuIS data field RT_COORD_TYPE.SRID. An SRID value of 4326 indicates that the coordinate values are in latitude-longitude coordinates. In that case, the display coordinates will be in UTM, within the UTM zone at the center of the extent of the location positions. SRID values starting with 326 are presumed to indicate UTM coordinates within the northern hemisphere. SRID values starting with 327 are presumed to indicate UTM coordinates within the southern hemisphere. The final two digits in either of these cases are taken to be the UTM longitudinal zone. State plane coordinates are not supported at this time.

 

File Name: EarthSoft.Forms.Library.EnviroInsite.dll

 

Language: English

 

Input Parameters: The following parameters may be selected from the standard EQuIS parameter selection interface. After the map has been generated, users may elect to double-click on individual components to bring up dialog boxes that allow for greater control of the plot contents than from the EQuIS report interface. Readers may find it useful to refer to the EnviroInsite documentation for a complete description of the generated object properties.
