Create Surface Heat Map

The Create Surface Heat Map feature is a heatmap that shows the areas of the slope that are most/least affected by the falling rocks.

Create Surface Heat Map button Select: Interpret > Create Surface Heat Map

There are two types of events that can be analysed:

  • Impact Points
  • End Points

Impact points are locations of impact from individual rockpath. With this option selected, the heatmap shows the areas that are most impacted (in red) and least impacted (in blue) by falling rocks. The image on the left shows the heatmap of a line seeder when impact points are selected.

Hide zero values is an option that, if turned on, eliminates all locations in the heatmap that have not encountered any falling rocks (either by impact or as endpoints).

End points are the end locations of each individual rockpath. This is basically where the rocks end up after falling from their initial locations. With this option selected, the more rocks end up in a location the more red (hot) the heatmap will be. The image on the right shows the heatmap of a line seeder when end points are selected.

Surface Contour Mode

Using the Contour Legend, users can switch between two Surface Contour Modes:

  • Heat map
  • Histogram

Contour Legend - Surface Contour Options


Selecting the Histogram option will display the surface heat map as a histogram (showing frequency). When using this feature, a block is not necessarily displayed for each Impact point or Endpoint. Instead, the Histogram Resolution is used to control the number of blocks displayed and allows users to control the level of detail shown in their surface heat map.
