Graphical and Statistical Analysis of Orientation Data
Dips version 6.0 has finally arrived, a major new upgrade to our popular stereonet analysis program. New features in Dips 6.0 include a comprehensive kinematic analysis toolkit for planar, wedge and toppling analysis; significant improvements to the user interface and graphical interactivity; dip vector and intersection plotting; fuzzy cluster analysis and much more.
|Kinematic analysis, planar sliding using pole vectors, daylight envelope, 30 degree friction angle, 70 degree slope angle.||Data input spreadsheet, contour plot, rosette plot, pie chart.|
|Contour plot, user-defined set windows, mean planes.||Kinematic analysis, wedge sliding using intersections of all planes.|
|Kinematic analysis, flexural toppling using pole vectors.||Stereonet, rosette, chart and grid views.|
Dips is designed for the interactive analysis of orientation based geological data. The program is capable of many applications and is designed for the novice or occasional user, and for the accomplished user of stereographic projection who wishes to utilize more advanced tools in the analysis of geological data.
Dips allows the user to analyze and visualize structural data following the same techniques used in manual stereonets. In addition, it has many computational features, such as statistical contouring of orientation clustering, mean orientation and confidence calculation, cluster variability, and qualitative and quantitative feature attribute analysis.
Dips is designed for the analysis of features related to the engineering analysis of rock structures, however, the free format of the Dips data file permits the analysis of any orientation-based data.
