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, the data source is the fields within the dt_lithology data table.
To modify the display options for a particular soil type, select the Fill Style tab. Then select the soil in the central list box and then modify the hatch and color using the dialog controls to the right.
