Property Viewer

The Property Viewer exists in both the Modeler and Interpreter. In both cases, it can be accessed by selecting Analysis > Property Viewer or by clicking on the icon in toolbar Model Layers Icon. It allows the user to visualize cohesion, phi, unit weight, pore pressure, GSI, mi, or D.

The options available are explained below:

Property Viewer in the Modeller

Property: Select property to view


  • Show variable and constant: view all contours.
  • Show variable only: only view contours of spatially variable materials, or linearly increasing ones.
  • Pick materials to show: select specific materials to view.

Spatial Options:

  • Sample number: allows you to cycle through the samples of the analysis.
  • Show Spatial Grid: view the grid boxes (instead of the interpolated contours) that are actually generated by the field.
  • Normalize Spatial Contours: view the contours on a general legend, by their relation to their standard deviation. This is especially useful if you have materials that have very different levels of strength.

Spatial Properties:

This option allows the user to adjust the correlation length values and view the changes to the model in real-time.

  • Apply Grid Changes to Model: this box is automatically checked. It indicates that the changes you make here will be applied to the analysis. If you would like to see the effect of the values without changing your inputs in the Statistics dialog, uncheck this box.
  • Display Options: the usual Display Options are also found here.


Two additional options can be found in the toolbar. The Open New Property Viewer button (Model Layers Icon) allows the user to open a new instance of the property viewer for this model. This is particularly useful if you want to see two different properties at the same time (such as cohesion and phi for example) that are correlated. The views can then be tiled, and the Synchronize Property Viewer button (Synchronize Models Icon) would allow you to cycle through samples of both instances at once, and check or uncheck options in the Property Viewer Options for both instances.

Property Viewer in Interpreter

The Property Viewer in Interpret contains all of the options found above, with the addition of the following options:

Analysis Method: Select the analysis method to view.

Draw Global Minimum Surface for Sample: this option is checked off by default. It allows the user to see the corresponding global minimum surfaces associated with each sample. As you cycle through the samples, this surface changes.

Filter the Samples that can be viewed (Filter Models Icon): used to filter out the samples that are viewed by various different criteria.

Filter Samples Dialog
Filter Samples Dialog

Show that sample that gives the minimum factor of safety (Slip Surfaces Model Icon): displays the sample with the lowest factor of safety.
