Planar

A Planar Traverse Type is a planar surface on which joint orientation measurements have been collected over a 2D area (e.g., wall mapping).

Traverse ID

For a Planar Traverse, the default Traverse ID will have a "P" prefix (e.g., P1, P2, ...) when you initially add/create Traverses. After adding Traverses you can change the default ID values to any numeric or alpha-numeric values.

Data Format

The Data Format refers to the orientation format of the data collected on a Traverse. For each Planar Traverse, the orientation format of the data you enter in the first two columns of the Dips Grid Data view, must correspond to the Data Format selected in the Traverse Informat ion dialog. The following Data Formats are available:

  • Dip/DipDirection
  • Strike(Right)/Dip
  • Strike(Left)/Dip
  • Trend/Plunge

The Data Format option allows you to specify the orientation format for individual Traverses. This allows you to combine different data formats within the same Dips file. By default, the Data Format for a Planar Traverse is the same as the Global Orientation Format (entered in Project Settings).

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. See the Data Format / Traverse Format topic for more information.

Traverse Format

The Traverse Format refers to the orientation format used to define the orientation of the Traverse itself. For a Planar Traverse, the Traverse Format is always the same as the Data Format.

Example of Traverse Information dialog with two Planar Traverses

Traverse Information dialog

For a Planar Traverse the format of Orient 1 and Orient 2 entered in the Traverse Information dialog must correspond to the Traverse Format.

In the above example:

  • For Traverse P1: Dip = 45 / DipDirection = 100
  • For Traverse P2: Strike(Right) = 180 / Dip = 25
