Boring log sheets are the full page boring log descriptions that appear in the appendices of most site characterization reports. The generation of boring logs in EnviroInsite are facilitated by the Boring Log Template Design window that enables the user to create new boring log formats or to reproduce existing company formats. Once generated, these formats may be saved as xml template files that can be restored in future projects.
Data plotted in the boring logs is stored in the Wells, Borings, Point Values, and Fill tables in the EnviroInsite database files. The user may use the standard EnviroInsite fields for storage of well id, strata, or coordinate data, however, they are not constrained by the standard field list. Users may also elect to create their own set of fields within the Wells and Borings tables. Custom fields within the Wells table are used for posting text or numeric data in the log header areas. Custom fields within the Borings tables are used for posting numeric data or text descriptions associated with the strata intervals and appear in the downhole portion of the log reports. The Point Values table stores data that is posted in the downhole portion of the log reports that is not necessarily associated with a strata interval. It may be used to post text comments or to report point measurements, such as PID measurements or blow-counts.
For EQuIS database users, refer to the discussion in the Tables and Fields used to Generate Full-Page Boring Logs topic.
Example Log Templates - The standard installation of EnviroInsite includes example boring log templates for EQuIS and non-EQuIS users. These boring log templates are installed to C:\Program Files\EarthSoft\EnviroInsite\Examples\ (assuming the typical EnviroInsite installation path of C:\Program Files\EarthSoft\EnviroInsite).
•Templates in the Log Templates folder are intended for EQuIS databases. If chosen to install during the Professional installation Installing Example Files these EQuIS compatible log templates are also available in the EQuIS Professional install at C:\Program Files\EarthSoft\EQuIS\Examples\Log Templates. Please see below for images of these example boring logs.
•Templates in the non-EQuIS Boring Log Templates folder are intended for EnviroInsite databases.
Any template can be revised if different data is desired or if data is stored in a different location in the database.

The log report is divided into five parts from top to bottom:
Fields and graphic objects placed in the Data Header will appear on only the first page of the boring log report (i.e., the first page of each location). All other portions will be generated on every page of the report. There is a "1st Page Only" option available for objects or graphics in the Title Block section that allows for configuration of this setting in this section.
Available data fields are listed in the three windows on the right-hand side of the Boring Log Template Design window. Double-clicking on one of these fields will result in the field being placed at a default location within the report design. The field may then be selected and dragged to the desired location. Downhole field box widths may be resized by selecting the box and dragging the corner sizing rectangles.
