Query Excavations

The Query Excavations option will automatically create Queries around ALL EXCAVATED OPENINGS, with a single mouse click. To use Query Excavations:

  1. Select Query Excavations from the Query menu.
  2. Queries will automatically be generated along the boundaries of ALL EXCAVATED OPENINGS. The Specify Query Locations dialog will NOT appear.


  • The Query Excavations option creates Queries around all regions which have been excavated, at the current stage which is being viewed. This does not necessarily correspond only to regions within "Excavation Boundaries" (as defined in RS2). Excavated regions can be enclosed by any type of boundary, or combination of boundaries (for example, a material boundary, or combinations of stage and / or material and / or excavation boundaries, etc).
  • By default, the Generate Values method will be "At each vertex" when using the Query Excavations option. If the "At each vertex" method is not suitable, then the queries can always be edited individually, to change the Generate Values method. See Editing Queries for more info.
  • The Query Excavations option creates Queries exactly on boundaries. If an offset from the boundary is required, then the Query Boundary option can be used.
  • If neither Query Excavations nor Query Boundary will create a desired Query, then it will be necessary to use the Add Material Query option, which allows a completely general, user-defined query to be created.

Once queries are generated using Query Excavations, they are identical in all respects to queries created using Add Material Query, and are edited, deleted, graphed, etc in exactly the same manner.
