Borehole Properties
 
Name:
Name of the borehole will appear on report
Cross Section Properties
 
1) Name:
Name of the section will appear on report
 
2) Please indicate the depth of cross section required. Selecting a shallower cross section will produce a section with greater resolution near the surface than if a deeper cross section depth is selected. Specify depth using either:
 
Below Surface
Cross section base specified in metres below ground surface (depth is measured from the lowest elevation along the cross section)
          OR           Elevation relative to OD
Cross section base specified in metres relative to Ordnance Datum
Minimum: 1m   Minimum: m
Maximum: m   Maximum: m
Value: m   Value: m
 
 
Horizontal Section Properties
 
1) Name:
Name of the section will appear on report
 
 
2) Select base depth of horizontal section using either:
 
Below Surface
Horizontal section depth specified in metres below ground surface
          OR           Elevation relative to OD
Horizontal section depth specified in metres relative to Ordnance Datum
Minimum: 0m
