Over the past few weeks we’ve been polishing a new feature for “overplotting” biozone panels. This feature gives you more flexibility over which biozone schemes you can include in the same columns. It was something we allowed for in the v2.1 data model but hadn’t got around to implementing yet. And yes, I am aware that “overplot” isn’t officially part of the English language, but it does describe the concept quite succinctly!
Hopefully you are already aware that:
- Biozone intervals are always linked to a scheme.
- Biozone schemes are linked to a discipline.
- There are four panel types for biozones: one for to each discipline.
- A biozone panel in a block template has a scheme attribute. When you add a panel template to a block template, you can either:
- Choose one scheme belonging to the panel’s discipline, or
- choose no scheme (“<panel per scheme>”), in which case you will see all of the intervals linked to schemes with the panel’s discipline, either merged into one column or as separate, automatically generated panels.
In short, this means you could either select all the schemes for a discipline, or one scheme only.
Adding the overplot function makes things much more flexible, giving you complete control over which intervals will appear in which columns, and even allowing you to mix disciplines. It is a simple technique (on your side anyway!) which tells one panel to draw on top of the previous panel. Go to the full post…
