When printing profiles the user may choose to have LOGDRAFT place the borings at even intervals across the page or, alternatively, use some kind of coordinate system for placing the borings. This choice is made from the Scales tab of the print configuration dialog.
- If location information isn't available for the project, clicking on the No horizontal scaling check box results in a profile of borings that are evenly spaced horizontally across the page, similar to the example shown in this figure.
If location information is available, you may choose to specify a horizontal scale for the program to use when placing borings onto the profile: This scale determines the number of coordinate units per physical inch or centimeter of paper. Choose this option by entering a number into the Units per inch of paper or Units per cm. of paper field.
- When using station numbers as coordinates, the horizontal scale is specified in terms of the units used between stations: for instance, if a scale of 1 SI station per centimeter is desired, enter 1000 (1 station*1000 meters per station) into the Units per cm. of paper field.
- When using borings placed on a two-dimensional grid the horizontal scale reflects distances along a line drawn between the left and right borings of the profile.
Alternatively, you may elect to have LOGDRAFT automatically choose an appropriate scale so that all of the borings chosen for plotting will fit onto a single page (the borings will still be placed relative to each other in direct proportion to their actual distances apart). This option is chosen by clicking on the Proportional horizontal scaling check box.
