Create BoreLines dialog

The Create BoreLines tool is accessed by double-clicking on "ArcGIS Tool icon.png Create BoreLines" under the "ArcGIS Toolset icon.png Features" toolset under the "ArcGIS Toolset icon.png Subsurface Analyst" toolset under the "ArcGIS Toolbox icon.png Arc Hydro Groundwater Tools" toolbox. This tool creates BoreLine (3D polyline) features from vertical data related to point features (e.g. Wells). Tool inputs are a point feature class and a table with vertical data, which are related through key fields. Features can be attributed with a GroupID which can be used to categorize the BoreLines (for example, into hydrogeologic units).

The following fields are available. Required fields are marked with a ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png icon. Fields marked with a ArcGIS Error icon.png icon may either not be supported or the table doesn't exist.

  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Input Point Features – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Input Point Features dialog in order to specify the point features representing the location where the borehole data were measured.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Unique Point Identifier Field – Select from the drop-down the unique identifier of the point features. The unique identifier is used as a key field to which vertical data are related.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Input BoreLine Features – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Input BoreLine Features dialog in order to specify the feature class storing the 3D features created.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png BoreLine Related Identifier – Select from the drop-down the key field associating BoreLine features to the point features from which they were created.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png BoreLine GroupID – Select from the drop-down the attribute of BoreLine features used to classify them into categories (e.g., hydrogeologic units).
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Input BoreholeLog Table – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Input BoreholeLog Table dialog in order to specify the table containing vertical data from which the BoreLine features are created.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png BoreholeLog Related Identifier – Select from the drop-down the key field associating vertical data with point features.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png BoreholeLog GroupID – Select from the drop-down the field in the attribute of the BoreholeLog table used to classify intervals into categories (e.g., hydrogeologic units).
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png BoreholeLog Top Elevation – Select from the drop-down the field in the BoreholeLog table representing top elevations.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png BoreholeLog Bottom Elevation – Select from the drop-down the field in the BoreholeLog table representing bottom elevations.
  • Append to Existing BoreLine Features – Optional. Turn on to append new BoreLines to the feature class. Turn off to clear the target feature class prior to creating new BoreLines.
