    EQuIS for ArcGIS EQuIS for ArcGIS Document Transcript

    • EarthSoft’s EQuIS for ArcGIS adds powerful environmental modules and utilities to enhance the capabilities of ESRI’s ArcMap and ArcScene desktop GIS applications. ArcView, ArcEditor, or ArcInfo 8.1 or later can be used to create, EQuIS for ArcGIS query, map, analyze, and report from EQuIS project databases while seamlessly integrating the GIS with industry-leading third party software.
    • The EQuIS 3D Preview Window used to visualize a 3D contaminant plume created with EQuIS for ArcGIS’ EVS export module, aka Ctech Application Launcher (Left) 3D Annotation and Enhanced Marker Symbology Renderer (directly below). Sample custom dialogs for the EZView LayerBuilder and Lithology Feature Inspec- tor (center of page below). Sample LogPlot 2001 boring log generated on-the-fly by right-clicking on a borehole in ArcMap, and selecting LogPlot (bottom). Advanced 3D Visualization For advanced 3D visualization, EQuIS for ArcGIS is integrated with Version 5.1 and higher of CTech's 3D software (EVS, EVS-Pro, MVS, MAS). Results from any chemical layer in the GIS, as well as lithology information for any selected boreholes in ArcGIS, are seamlessly exported in EVS-compatible format. The new CTech Application Launcher will then show thumbnails of all the available scenarios (built-in or custom) for visualizing the type of data passed to it. 3D Preview Window ArcMap does not include a 3D viewing window for 3D Analyst like ArcView 3.x pro- vided. For users with ArcScene, EQuIS for ArcGIS adds a dockable window that con- tains an interactive 3D scene of the current map, and provides access to the EQuIS 3D utilities otherwise only available when using ArcScene, ArcGIS 3D Analyst. Borehole Logs Create borehole logs for one or all locations in your EQuIS Geology database directly from the GIS. EQuIS for ArcGIS can create and automate Rockware’s LogPlot and GCA’s gINT programs, leaving users with time to analyze their data rather than spend time dealing with output data formats and file structures. Fence Diagrams Interactively select borehole locations in ArcMap or ArcScene, then with the click of a button, create 2D cross-sections with RockWare’s RockWorks 99 program, or create a 2D cross-section in GCA’s gINT. ArcScene users can visualize the output from Rock- Works 3D fence diagrams, which EQuIS transfers to either traditional shapefile output, or in ESRI’s personal geodatabase format for easier management of spatial data files.
    • EZView LayerBuilder The EQuIS EZView LayerBuilder consists of a hierarchical tree view that allows you to refine your search criteria used to query analytical results or groundwater elevations from EQuIS Chemistry or Geology databases. The layers can be created as either dynamic or static layers. Static layers can be created as shapefiles or geodatabase feature classes, where they can participate in any ArcGIS operation. Dynamic queries have the advantage of a “live” link, where the current values in the EQuIS project data- base are used whenever the ArcGIS map document is reopened. Statistics and Selection Summary Tab View standard statistics and histogram on any selected map features from one of the layer’s attribute values. A selection sum- mary tab is also added to the ArcMap table of contents, which also displays counts of each unique value found in any attribute in your selection set. For example, if features from the locations table are selected, the summary tab shows the number of loca- tions selected, and all fields in the table, such as location type. When location type is highlighted, a table showing the counts of each unique location type (wells, boreholes, soil gas points, etc.) is displayed. Geodatabase and Metadata Support Geodatabase Class Extensions associated with all spatial data created provide automatic rendering of layers when added to a map or viewed in ArcCatalog using per-project customizable symbols stored in an EarthSoft style database used with ESRI’s Style Gal- lery. All geodatabase feature classes created by EQuIS for ArcGIS also populate all required FGDC metadata values using con- tact and project information from the EQuIS database. Project View Feature Inspector Drill down into any EQuIS sample location layer to view all associated data from related tables in the EQuIS project database. The EQuIS database structure is recreated in the ArcGIS framework providing access to all populated EQuIS database tables and relationships within the GIS where they can be used by any out-of-the-box or custom commands or tools, e.g. ArcMap’s ‘Select by Location’, geoprocessing wizard, and even other extensions such as ESRI Geostatistical Analyst or Spatial Analyst. Right-click on the sample ID and you can zoom, highlight, or label the location using values from the EQuIS database. The EZView LayerBuilder was used to create a Sum Of Concentrations Sum Of Concentrations Maximum: 10,000 µg/l Maximum: 10,000 µg/l chemical layer of the average concentrations of Cis-1,2-Dichloroethene Cis-1,2-Dichloroethene three chemicals of concern.

At the same time, advanced users can choose to have more control over the steps taken while in Surfer, before B-44 units: µg/l B-44 units: µg/l returning the output to the GIS.
