Data Format / Traverse Format

For each Traverse Type in the Traverse Information dialog, you will notice that there is a Data Format and a Traverse Format.

  • The Data Format in the Traverse Information dialog, refers to the format of the orientation data collected on the Traverse. This is the data format which is expected to be entered in the Grid Data view.
  • The Traverse Format in the Traverse Information dialog, refers to the format used to record the orientation of the Traverse. This is the format which is expected to be entered in the Traverse dialog, to define the orientation of a Traverse.

Summary of possible Data Formats and Traverse Formats for each Traverse Type.

Data Format

The Data Format allows you to specify the orientation format of data collected on traverses, for the following Traverse types:

  • Linear
  • Planar
  • Linear BH Televiewer
  • Curved BH Televiewer
  • Clinorule

The following Data Formats are available:

  • Dip/DipDirection
  • Strike(Right)/Dip (right hand rule for strike)
  • Strike(Left)/Dip (left hand rule for strike)
  • Trend/Plunge (use this for linear measurements or poles to planes).

By default, the Data Format for these Traverse types is the same as the Global Orientation Format (entered in Project Settings). However, the Data Format allows you to specify a different orientation format for a Traverse. This is useful when combining data from different sources or when combining measurements of Linear features with measurements of Planar structures. For example, you could record Dip/DipDirection data on one Traverse, and Strike/Dip data on another Traverse, and use the Data Format option to specify the formats.

NOTE: If the Data Format (for a Traverse) is different from the Global Orientation Format (entered in Project Settings), the data format in the Traverse Information dialog will override the Global Orientation Format.

For the Oriented Core Traverse types (i.e., Linear BH Oriented Core, Curved BH Oriented Core) the Data Format is always Alpha/Beta (i.e., oriented core measurements). This is indicated in the Data Format column, and cannot be changed by the user for oriented core Traverse types.

Traverse Format

The Traverse Format indicates the orientation format you must use for a given Traverse type. The Traverse Format cannot be changed by the user; it is determined by the Traverse type. The Traverse Format column is for information purposes and cannot be edited by the user.

  • For Linear, Linear BH Televiewer and Clinorule Traverse types, the Traverse Format is always Trend / Plunge.
  • For Planar Traverses, the Traverse Format is determined by the selection of the Data Format (i.e., Traverse Format = Data Format). For example, if the Data Format = Strike (Right)/Dip, then you must also use Strike(Right)/Dip to define the Traverse Orientation.
  • For Linear BH Oriented Core, the Traverse orientation requires three values - Orient 1/2/3 - see the Linear BH Oriented Core topic for a definition of these values.
  • For the Curved Borehole Traverse types ( Curved BH Oriented Core and Curved BH Televiewer), the Traverse Orientation is defined by entering data from a survey file under the Survey Data tab in the Traverse dialog. Additionally, for Curved BH Oriented Core, a value of Orient 1 must be entered. The definition of this value is the same as required for the Linear BH Oriented Core Traverse.
