EnviroInsite Development News - February 2017
Publish to the Web
EnviroInsite images can now be published to the web and viewed within dedicated web controls. From within the web control, one of the previously uploaded images can be selected and then layers turned on and off. Check out this link to a web page that hosts the dedicated control and this other link to a video that demonstrates how publish to the web. We're looking for client input on the utility of this feature and how it might be expanded, so let us know if you have an interest in seeing this feature get expanded out.
We know that our help-file documentation has seriously lagged behind the product advances. The new knowledge base, videos and webinars have partly filled the gap, but they are not enough. We're going to fix this situation with a new online documentation system and with dedicated effort over the next couple of months to fill it out.
New EQuIS Data Requirements Document
For the most part, the EnviroInsite w/ EQuIS K'Nect can be counted on to just work, however the newly available Data Requirements Document will go a long way to helping users to plan with new projects and resolve issues as they arise. You can see it online or download a pdf from the knowledge base. Also, check out the recording of our recent webinar on the same subject.
Hints and tips...
Advanced Piper Diagrams
The EnviroInsite Piper Diagrams are phenomenal in allowing for labels to be drawn that indicate the sampling location of each observation. Sometimes however users need the symbol style and / or color to be dependent on sample features such as date, elevation, depth, stratigraphic unit samples, or location. This can be done by creating two overlaid Piper Diagrams. Each diagram would query a distinct set of data and have its own symbol color and style.

Give your Data Tables Some Style
By default, EnviroInsite data tables are black text on a white background. Take time to give your data tables a little style by setting the header background to a dark shade and the title text to white. We've also recently added the ability to indpendently set the text heights for the title area and body area, and to assign text styles for non-detects and field duplicates. Watch our Spider Diagram webinar to get more ideas.
