The properties of all borehole data that GMS displays on the screen can be controlled through the Borehole tab of the Display Options dialog. This dialog is opened by right-clicking on the Borehole Data Borehole Folder.svg entry in the Project Explorer and selecting the Display Options command. It can also be accessed from the from the Display menu or the Display Options Display Options Macro.svg macro. The following table describes the display options available for the Borehole module.

Display Option Description
Borehole edges This option controls the display of the lines that show the outline of the boreholes. The color of the borehole edges can be adjusted according to the following options:
  1. Auto – draws the material color if faces are not displayed. Uses black or white if the faces are displayed
  2. Specified – used the color specified next to the borehole edges
  3. Material – displays the material color of the borehole segment
Borehole faces If this option is on then the borehole segments are displayed are filled polygons.
Diameter This value determines the display size of the boreholes in the graphics window in world length coordinates.
Num. slices This edit field determines the number of slices to display the borehole. The default is 6 making the boreholes display as hexagons.
Hole names If the Hole names box is checked, the name of each hole is displayed at the top of the hole.
Water table If the Water table box is checked, an icon representing the water table is displayed at the water table elevation of each borehole.
Horizon IDs The Horizon IDs option controls the display of the horizon id next to each borehole contact.
Cross sections edges The Horizon ids option controls the display of the horizon id next to each borehole contact. Three options are available for the cross section edges:
  1. Auto – draws the material color if faces are not displayed. Uses black or white if the faces are displayed
  2. Specified – used the color specified next to the cross section edges
  3. Material – displays the material color of the stratigraphic unit in the cross section
Cross section faces If this option is on then the borehole segments are displayed as filled polygons.
Cross section names If this option is on then the borehole names are displayed above the boreholes.
Material display This radio group determines the display color of the boreholes. The borehole segments can be colored either by the Soil or HGU assigned.
Cross Section Highlighting for Horizon Coverages Option displays of the lines showing the part of the cross sections where the material with the horizon ID of the active horizon coverage exists. This highlighting only appears when in plan view and the active coverage is a horizon coverage.
Points If the Points box is checked, every sample data point is displayed. If the Use color ramp box is checked, the points are colored according to the current dataset and the current color ramp settings.
Lines If the Lines box is checked, the sample points are connected by a series of line segments. If the Use color ramp box is checked, the line segments are colored according to the current dataset and the current color ramp settings.
Data plots If the Data plots box is checked, a plot of the current dataset is drawn next to each borehole with sample data. The width (horizontal length) can be adjusted and the options associated with the plot scale, plot axes, etc., can be accessed by selecting the Plot Options button.
Data range By default, the minimum color on the color ramp is associated with the minimum dataset value and the maximum color is associated with the maximum dataset value. The ramp of colors can be confined to a smaller interval defined by the Maximum and Minimum values. This forces all of the color gradation to be concentrated in a particular range of interest.
The Display Options dialog show the Boreholes tab.
