Capture Distance

Data queries for plots on a cross section in EnviroInsite include a parameter referred to as the capture distance.  The capture distance defines a query that filters out locations, whose horizontal distance from the  cross-section's defining polygon are greater than the Capture Distance.  The Capture Distance is specified in the query tab of individual plot dialog boxes.  The default query size is set to a fraction of the overall cross-section length and may be modified from the value specified in the Cross Section Options dialog box.  Reducing the Capture Distance will reduce the number of selected locations.  This may be useful where there are so many locations in the vicinity of the polyline that the resulting figure is overly crowded.
