RSLog Update History

May 10 2023

  1. NEW A new version of log template header/footer designer is released:
    1. Piezometer Readings: when linking a database label to borehole data, under the Groundwater group user can select Piezometer Readings. This will print a table with depth and elevation of all groundwater level measurements entered in Instrumentation tab of borehole data entry page.
    2. User can now set vertical alignment of texts.
  2. NEW A new version of Cross-Section Designer is released:
    1. Added "Vertical Exaggeration" to 3D mode to allow better visualization of larger sites,
    2. Added separate Borehole Display Sizes for 3D and Profile views,
    3. Added a new feature to export all cross-section polygons to JSON format (from Export button on the top toolbar > click List of Polygons menu)
    4. Pressing Esc button will no longer close the page; This prevents accidental closing of the Cross-Section Designer page,
    5. Clicking on a field test graph now allows customizing the appearance of the graph. The following properties were added to graphs:
      1. Data Column: user can select the column to plot. For example for a CPT test you can select to plot qc, fs, u2 etc.
      2. Style: allows user to select whether the field test data is shown as a graph or as a table
  3. FIXED Export to DXF would miss some of the hatch patterns,
  4. FIXED Print function which prevented from creating the PDF report,
  5. FIXED Polygons with solid color (i.e. no hatch pattern) would not show properly in the 3D viewer.
