Graph Pile Data

To graph pile data:

  1. Select Graph Pile Data from the toolbar or the Graph menu. You will first be prompted to pick the pile(s) to graph.
  2. You can select piles with the left mouse button, or multiple piles with a window, or all piles by using Select All in the right-click menu.
  3. When you are finished selecting, press Enter, or right-click and select Graph Selected from the popup menu.
  4. You will then see the Graph Pile Data dialog, which allows you to select the data type to plot, as well as plotting data from multiple stages on the same plot. You can also choose whether to colour-code the lines according to the pile type (if you are plotting different pile types on the same graph), or according to the stage (if you are plotting data from multiple stages).
  5. When you have made the desired selections in this dialog, select Plot and the graph will be generated in RS2. Alternatively, data may be plotted in Excel or copied to the clipboard, by selecting the Plot in Excel or Copy Data buttons. See the Plot in Excel and Copy Data topics for more information.
    • If you have both the viewport and the graph windows open side-by-side, click on a data point in the graph, the corresponded node will be highlighted with a red circle in your viewport (see GIF below).

Pile Data Graphs

  • Note the ID numbers at the end of each curve. These correspond to the pile ID numbers, which are automatically displayed whenever pile data is graphed. The ID numbers also indicate which end of a pile (on the model) corresponds to the end of each curve (on the graph). This is important, and you should always check where the pile ID numbers are on each pile, to make sure you are interpreting the graph correctly. To turn OFF the display of the ID numbers after graphing, you can uncheck the Pile Numbers option in the Display Options dialog. Alternatively, a convenient shortcut is to right-click on any pile, and uncheck the Pile Numbers option in the popup menu.


  • A shortcut for graphing data for a single pile, is to right-click ON a pile, and select Graph Pile Data from the popup menu. The procedure is then the same as steps 4 and 5 above.
