EQuIS for ArcGIS Flyer

  1. 1. EQuIS® for ArcGIS 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 ArcGIS 8.1 or later can be used to create, query, map, analyze, and report from EQuIS project databases while seamlessly integrating the GIS with industry-leading third-party software.
  2. 2. The EQuIS 3D Preview Window used to visualize a 3D contaminant plume created with EQuIS for ArcGIS’s EVS export module a.k.a., CTech application launcher (left) 3D Annotation and Enhance Marker Symbology Renderer (directly below). Sample custom dialog for the EZView LayerBuilder and Lithology Feature Inspector (center of page). Sample LogPlot 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 CTech's 3D software (EVS, EVS Pro, MVS and 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 provided. For users with ArcScene, EQuIS for ArcGIS adds a dockable window that contains the 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 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 are rather than spend time dealing with output data formats and file structures. Fence Diagrams Interactively select borehole locations in ArcMAP or ArcScene, then with a click of a button, create 2D cross-sections with RockWare's RockWorks application, or create a duty cross-section in GCA’s gINT. ArcScene users can visualize the output from your RockWorks 3D fence diagrams, which EQuIS transfers to either traditional shape file output, or an ESRI's personal geodatabase format for easier management of spatial data files.
  3. 3. 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 for groundwater elevations from EQuIS databases. The layers can be created as either dynamic or static layers. Static layers can be created and 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 database are used whenever the ArcGIS map document is reopened. Statistics and Selection Summary Tab View standard statistics and histograms on a selected map feature from one of the layer’s attribute values. A selection summary tab is also added to the ArcMAP table of contents, which also displays counts of each unique value found in any act view in your selection set. For example, if features from the location table are selected, the summary tab shows the number of location selected, and all fields in the table, such as location type. When location type is highlighted, a table showing the contents 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 an ArcCatalog using per-project customizable symbols stored in an Earthsoft style database used with ESRI's style gallery. All geodatabase feature classes created by EQuIS for ArcGIS also populate all required FTDC metadata values using contact and project information from the EQuIS database. Project View Feature Inspector Drill down into any EQuIS sample location layer to view all associated data for related tables in the EQuIS project database. The EQuIS database structure is re-created 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's 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 layer builder was used to create a chemical layer of the average concentration of three chemicals of concern. Multiple analyte queries are rendered using pie charts symbols sized according to concentration, with slices proportional to each constituent’s concentration. Golden Software's Surfer for Windows is seamlessly integrated to grid, contour, and return the Surfer output back to the GIS. And just like many of the modules in EQuIS for ArcGIS, the end user can still take advantage of this third party software without even knowing how to use it. At the same time, advanced users can choose to have more control over the steps taken while in Surfer, before returning the output to the GIS. The resulting Surfer grid, contours, and/or vector map (showing magnitude and direction throughout the grid) can all be seamlessly imported back into the GIS in ESRI formats, with FGDC metadata written documenting the various options used to create the grid/contours. Using the Project View Feature Inspector, custom labels for multiple analytes are easily created. The font, color, alignment and spacing of these and the majority of the symbols used by EQuIS for ArcGIS can be customized on a per-project basis using the ESRI Style Gallery.
