Datgel Fence And Map Tool

Fence and Map Tool - Version 3


The Datgel Fence and Map Tool is a collection of 22 gINT reports which provides an extensive range of data presentation options, including dynamically generated scale bars and legends/keys. The Tool is applicable to the AGS RTA database structure and DGD database structure (DGD is the structure used by the Datgel Advanced In Situ, CPT, DGD, Lab & In Situ, and Monitoring Tools).

This Tool is a culmination of years of development and optimisation by Datgel's expert gINT developers, and would take hundreds of hours to develop from scratch.

There are 5 major components of the Tool:

  • Fence reports
  • Fence post legend
  • Map reports
  • Map key
  • Scale Bars for both fence and map reports

Fence Reports

The Fence Reports optionally include a site map so you can easily visualise the positions and locations of the fence posts relative to the map. A range of page sizes are available, starting from A4 portrait and landscape, up to A1 landscape.

Point related data, such as soil/rock logging data in the form of graphs, charts, images and text, can be displayed on the left or right sides of the fence post and each type can be offset, by a variable distance, relative to the fence post. The fence reports can plot the following data on your fence posts:

  • Depth Scale
  • EOH Text
  • Material Name
  • Graphic Name
  • Origin Text
  • Formation Text
  • Geology Unit Text 1, 2, 3
  • USCS Text
  • CPT qc Rf Plot
  • Vane Shear Text
  • SPT N Text
  • SPT N Plot
  • SPT N and RQD Plot
  • Pocket Penetrometer Text
  • Sample Interval
  • Sample Text
  • DCP Plot
  • Consistency Text
  • Rock Strength Text
  • Rock Strength Histogram Plot
  • Rock Strength Bar Plot
  • Display Point Load Test
  • Major Defects
  • Fracture/Defect Spacing Histogram
  • Fracture Spacing Bar Chart
  • Fracture Frequency Plot
  • Weathering Text
  • Weathering Histogram
  • Weathering Bar Chart
  • RQD Plot
  • RQD Text
  • TCR Plot
  • TCR Text
  • Core Image Column Type

  • Drilling Water Levels
  • Piezo Levels
  • Piezo Static Level
  • Backfill
  • In-situ Perm Text
  • In-situ Perm K Plot
  • In-situ Perm Lugeon Plot
  • In-situ Density
  • ASS Data
  • Lab USCS Text
  • PSD Percent Fines Text
  • PSD D50 Text
  • PSD DMF Text
  • Lab CBR Text
  • RMR Histogram
  • UCS Text
  • Chemical Plot
  • Rock Tensile Strength Text
  • Point Load Index Text
  • Ten Percent Fines Text
  • Emerson Class Text
  • Moisture Content Text
  • Dry Density Text
  • Shrink-Swell Index Text
  • Plasticity Index Text

The fence posts can also be configured to display the material graphic, the geology map code colour, geology project unit colour and the origin colour. The colours and the graphics are all configurable to suit your project specific requirements.

Fence Post Legend

Identifying and understanding the Fence report becomes much easier with the Fence Legend. The Fence Legend is dynamically defined based on which data items are showing on the fence posts.

Map Reports

The map reports automatically defines a "proper" scale that fits the selected PointIDs in the map data frame. And the user has the ability to override the map area displayed and manually define the scale. Reports sizes from A4 to A1 are included.

Map Key

The map key and associated library tables allows the user to define the data marker for each point type, and display a dynamically defined map key on map reports and fence reports with a site map.

Scale Bar

A scale bar is automatically generated for site maps and both axes of fence reports.
