Contour Label

The Label Contour option allows you to place contour labels on contour plots in the Plan View. A contour label represents the numerical value of a contour line. To add Contour Labels:

  1. Select Label Contour Label Contour icon from the toolbar or the Add Tool sub-menu of the Tools menu.
  2. Position the cursor over a contour line, and click the left mouse button. A Contour Label will be added at that position. NOTE: you may also enter x,y coordinates in the prompt line.
  3. Repeat step 2 for all Contour Labels that you wish to add.
  4. When finished adding labels, right-click and select Done, or press Escape.

After a Contour Label has been added, it can be formatted, moved or deleted. See the Edit Tools Overview topic for details.


  • Contour labels can be added anywhere on a contour plot. It is up to the user to place them ON contour boundaries. If a contour label is not placed on a contour line, then the label will represent the value of the NEAREST contour line. If you wish to obtain exact data at points NOT on the contour lines, then you must use the Query options.
  • If the contour data (e.g. settlement, stress) or depth is changed, the values of the contour labels will be updated accordingly. However, contour labels will in general NOT be ON contour lines once the data is changed.
