Inspirational Visualisation

It is often said a picture paints a 1000 words and with today’s technology visualisation is being used more and more to portray and present complex information. This is one of the major reasons why we chose to stop development on KeyHole and move to the AutoCAD Civil 3D platform with the HoleBASE SI Extension, this environment opens up – many opportunities.

We are currently hard at work developing the next version of the HoleBASE SI Extension for AutoCAD Civil 3D. The new core will be faster, more stable and have better integration with HoleBASE SI than the first release. As part of this development work we are implementing the HoleBASE SI XYZ functionality in the Civil Extension. This will allow any down hole data to be plotted as either point groups or surfaces in AutoCAD Civil 3D,  for instance we can represent the locations of all samples, or plot the water table surface.

We now need your help, your imagination, on how you would like geotechnical data presented in 3D. I would be very grateful if you could send me example drawings or images that have been produced (by any means) to represent down hole information in a 3D model. We can then use these as examples of what we should try to achieve in plotting down hole XYZ information i.e CPT plots, Sample Locations, Contamination Levels, Water Strikes etc. Please don’t be constrained by how Keyhole worked, think of what you need to see to better understand the data or to present and explain to others.  We could use symbols sized in three dimensions, colours, labels, alter the cylinder diameter to represent values at a certain depth and many more techniques.

We will keep any information sent to us confidential and it will be used solely as a development aid to help shape the functionality and tools that we are developing within the Extension.

It is very important that we have your input at this stage as it allows us to design software to better meet your requirements.

If you have any questions then please don’t hesitate to contact me, Gary Morin

    End of Life Support Date for Microsoft Products Affecting Keynetix Software

    In the next few months, Microsoft are retiring extended support for both Windows 7 and the SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 r2 versions. For users who initially installed HoleBASE SI before 26th September 2014 (Versions less than 1.22.0.x) and users who installed KeyLAB before the start of 2015 and who haven’t already upgraded should particularly check to ensure that they are not affected.
