Borehole Commands

Borehole data can be converted to other types of objects with in GMS such as 2D scatter points, TINs, or 3D meshes. Borehole data is converted by using the following commands in the Boreholes menu:

Horizons to Solids 
Horizons to HUF 
Horizons to 3D Mesh 
Contacts to TIN 
Used to create a TIN surface from a set of selected contacts.
Contacts to 2D Scatter Points 
A set of selected contacts can be converted to a 2D scatter point set using the Contacts → 2D Scatter Points command.
Sample Data to 3D Scatter Points
Brings up the Sample Data → Scatter Points dialog that is used to create a 3D scatter point set from sample data.
Sample Data to Stratigraphy 
Opens the Sample Data → Stratigraphy dialog that allows defining stratigraphy (borehole contacts) based on the sample data.
Watertable to 2D Scatter Points 
The water table coordinates for a set of boreholes can be converted to a 2D scatter point set using the Water Table → 2D Scatter Points command. A dialog will apear asking to assign a name to the new scatter set before the conversion is completed.
Add Contacts to TIN 
Used to enter a point from a contact into the active TIN. The contact(s) are first selected and the command is then chosen from the Borehole menu. Typically all contacts which should be part of a TIN are selected before generating the TIN, but sometimes one is inadvertently left out, or more boreholes are added later.
