Intersection Contour Plots

Dips can plot the intersections of planes on the stereonet. The intersection of two planes is a line in 3-dimensional space with Trend / Plunge orientation. An intersection line is represented as a point on the stereonet. Intersections can be plotted as points or contours on the stereonet

To plot intersection contours:

  1. In the Sidebar Plot Options select the Contours checkbox.
  2. Select the Contours > Intersection option.

Intersection contours are based on the intersection of all Grid Data Planes.

Intersection contours may be helpful for Kinematic Analysis of Wedge Sliding and Direct Toppling since you can easily see the maximum concentrations of intersections on the stereonet.

NOTE: If you have selected Contours > Intersection in the Sidebar, the Contour Plot contour plot icon button in the toolbar will plot intersection contours, rather than pole or dip vector contours.
