This course was previously called "QuickStart Using gINT Civil Tools". gINT Civil tools (Update 2) allows gINT users to load gINT data in 2D models (mapping workflow for drilling plan creation and preliminary studies) as well as in 3D for subsurface interpretation and BIM workflows. In this course you will learn to connect to a gINT project file and display various aspects of the borehole data.

    Learn to Reconnect a Disconnected Database.

    Attaching Aerial Imagery                                                                                                                                                 01:41

    Aerial imagery can provide a useful backdrop to show where the borehole data is located. In this exercise you will     learn to attach an aerial image.

    Attaching Terrain Model                                                                                                                                                  00:49

    Learn how to Attach a Terrain Model.

    Adding a New Borehole Location                                                                                                                                 01:12

    Add a new borehole location to a drilling plan with the elevation of the borehole calculated from a terrain model.

    Open a 3D Model                                                                                                                                                                 01:00

    In this exercise you will explore how levels are created when data is imported into gINT Civil Tools. Data imported in     to gINT Civil Tools is created on a level specific to the Identifier. Having a unique level for each identifier creates a     simple workflow for reviewing and evaluating data.
