Reports and Research Functions

The Reports functions includes seven functions available to users with recorder level logon IDs. These reports are also included on Rock Art Inventory DVDs.

  • Survey Reports is a hyperlink into the wiki enabling recorders to write a report describing the findings of the survey.

  • ShowElementsByClass displays cropped elements for a selected survey from one or more rock art classes.

  • ShowImagesByCategory displays images for a selected survey from one or more image categories.

  • ShowTopoCharts displays the topo charts generated for a selected survey.

  • PanelReports displays five reports for the selected survey. Panel facing and inclination reports are displayed in tabular and graphic form. Panel attributes, detail topography and element counts by rock art class reports are displayed in tabular reports.

  • ElementReports displays four reports for the selected survey. Elements by rock art class and element sizing reports are displayed in tabular and graphic form. Element attributes and detail element data are displayed in tabular reports.

  • SurveyRecap displays for the survey selected, cluster or panel level data with thumb nail images.

The Research Section contains eight search, comparison and report functions available to users with research-level logon IDs. An ninth function, ShowNotebook, is available to all users.

  • SearchByAttributes searches all selected surveys and displays the rock art elements with attributes matching the selected criteria.

  • SearchForElementCoincidence searches all selected surveys for clusters or panels that have two to five rock art elements matching the attributes selected.

  • SearchElementComments searches, in all selected surveys, the Comment or historical text field, for element comments that match the search text.

  • CompareSurveyStats compares (displays) number of elements and the percent of elements by rock art class for the surveys selected.

  • CompareSurveys compares cropped elements by selected surveys and rock art class.

  • CompareSurveysByAttributes compares rock art class attributes from multiple surveys and highlight those attributes that have elements common to multiple surveys or unique to a single survey.

  • SliceAndCompareSurveysByAttributes is similar to CompareSurveysByAttributes, but first divides the elements within one or more surveys into groups using the attributes of a selected attribute set. These groups of elements are then analyzed for attributes that are common to multiple groups or unique to a single group.

  • ShowElementsByPatina sorts and displays cropped elements for a selected survey by the differences in the color of pecked areas and adjacent natural patina.

  • ShowNotebook is a research tool allowing users to selectively collect images and cropped elements from any number of surveys as entries in a notebook or work area.
