Create Lithostratigraphy Hydrostratigraphy Display dialog

The Create Lithostratigraphy Hydrostratigraphy Display tool is accessed by double-clicking on "ArcGIS Tool icon.png Create Lithography Stratigraphy Display" under the "ArcGIS Toolset icon.png XS2D Editor" toolset under the "ArcGIS Toolset icon.png Subsurface Analyst" toolset under the "ArcGIS Toolbox icon.png Arc Hydro Groundwater Tools" toolbox. This tool creates features representing lithostratigraphic or hydrostratigraphic data for a well. The tool will create polygon features displaying the lithostratigraphic or hydrostratigraphic unit, along with polygon features for displaying text information about the display. This tool is typically used alongside the Create XS2D Geophysical Plot Features for Well tool to represent geophysical and lithostratigraphic or hydrostratigraphic data for use in an XS2D data frame.

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.

  • Input Well Features – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Input Well Features dialog in order to specify the Well features, which are used as reference points for the lithography/stratigraphy data to plot.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png HydroID of Well defining the plot – Enter the numerical ID uniquely identifying the well feature defining the lithography/stratigraphy plot.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Well Ground Elevation (if not Z enabled) – Optional if Z enabled. Select from the drop-down the field in the Well features that specifies the well ground elevation. This should be specified if the Well features are not Z enabled.
  • Input XS2D_Catalog Table – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Input XS2D_Catalog Table dialog in order to specify the XS2D_Catalog table, which manages data about the feature classes being used to represent cross section data. The table holds information about the lithography/stratigraphy feature classes, and should be set up in advance with the Create Lithography Stratigraphy Feature Classes tool.
  • Identifier for XS2D_Catalog – Optional. Enter an additional identifier for the feature classes used for the display. Ex: "LITHO", "STRAT".
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Input Lithostratigraphy Table – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Input Lithostratigraphy Table dialog in order to specify the lithostratigraphy table.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Lithostratigraphy From Depth Field – Select from the drop-down the field that specifies the From Depths in the lithostratigraphy table.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Lithostratigraphy To Depth Field – Select from the drop-down the field that specifies the To Depths in the lithostratigraphy table.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Lithostratigraphy Display Field – Select from the drop-down the field that specifies the descriptive text to accompany the To and From Depths when displayed.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Lithostratigraphy WellID Field – Select from the drop-down the field that specifies the WellID.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Input Hydrostratigraphy Table – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Input Hydrostratigraphy Table dialog in order to specify the hydrostratigraphy table.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Hydrostratigraphy From Depth Field – Select from the drop-down the field that specifies the From Depths in the hydrostratigraphy table.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Hydrostratigraphy To Depth Field – Select from the drop-down the field that specifies the To Depths in the hydrostratigraphy table.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Hydrostratigraphy Display Field – Select from the drop-down the field that specifies the descriptive text to accompany the To and From Depths when displayed.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Hydrostratigraphy WellID Field – Select from the drop-down the field that specifies the WellID.
  • Append Features to Feature Classes – Optional. Turn on to append new features to the feature classes. Turn off to clear the existing features of the same FTYPE in the feature classes before writing the new features to the feature classes.
  • Plot a Specified Range of Depths – Optional. Turn on to only plot a specified range of depths using the "Plot Range Minimum Depth" and "Plot Range Maximum Depth" fields (below). Turn off to use the entire set of depths for plotting.
  • Plot Range Minimum Depth – Optional (required when using the "Plot a Specified Range of Depths" option). Enter the minimum depth below the well to for which to generate a display.
  • Plot Range Maximum Depth – Optional (required when using the "Plot a Specified Range of Depths" option). Enter the maximum depth below the well to for which to generate a display.
Plot Options
  • Width of Plot – Enter the overall width in map units of the plot to create.
  • Plot Position – Select from a drop-down the position to create the plot in relation to the well. The options are:
    • Center
    • Left
    • Right
  • Offset Factor – Enter the amount of distance the plot will be offset from the borehole. If a geophysical data plot is to be used alongside of the lithography/stratigraphy data, this value should be at least the width of the geophysical plot.
  • Vertical Buffer for Background Polygon – Enter the vertical buffer for the plot.
  • Vertical Exaggeration for plot – Enter the amount to scale the plot by, vertically. If a borehole has a depth of 100, and the vertical exaggeration is specified as 20, then the plot will be 2000 units tall. This is only for better visibility.
  • Plot Major Interval – Optional. Enter the major interval for the plot.
  • Plot Minor Interval – Optional. Enter the minor interval.
