Earth Systems Modeling Tools
The GISLab provides applications development and customer support at
a variety of levels for GIS users. Applications developed for earth
scientists span the range from minor enhancements and general assistance
in developing procedures, such as developing an Avenue script for ArcView
3.2, to full-blown, robust applications, such as a rapid mapping application
built on the ArcGIS and the Component Object Architecture (COM) that
interfaces with ArcSDE and Oracle.
Examples of ArcView 3.2 and
1. EES Lithologic Log Tool
The tool enables the user to create an ordered (high elevation to
low elevation) lithologic log for a single point or a group of points.
You can define the point set to use by interactively selecting points
on a map or by using an existing map layer of points. A map layer
of water table elevations can be used to limit the list of ordered
lithologic units so that only the units above the water table are
listed. A map layer (or layers) for infiltration rates can be used
to also return the infiltration rate associated with each selected

2. EES Chart Tool
This tool enables the user to create a scatter plot for well and model
point layers to explore and compare how attributes vary by depth.
After identifying the model and point layers, the user can begin charting
these layers, separately or together, using the EES Chart Tool. The
model and well layers are three-dimensional representations, so that
many points will be collocated at the same X-Y location. However,
each point at the same X-Y location will have a different Z value
(elevation or depth). The tool allows the user to chart all the points
sharing an X-Y location, so that the Z value can be plotted on the
vertical axis and an attribute value (say, saturation) can be plotted
along the horizontal axis.
