Search for Element Coincidence

Objective

The Search for Element Coincidence function searches all selected surveys for clusters or panels that have two to five rock art elements matching selected attributes. It is used to test a hypothesis that certain elements are frequently found together.

Processing

The first page displays the Number of Elements and five columns of Rock Art Classes. Select two to five Rock Art Classes to search by clicking the corresponding radio button. Click "None" to remove a rock art class selection.

To continue, click the Submit button.

The second page will display an 'Incidence' for each rock art class selected. One incidence will be 'Active', the others will be either 'Defined' or 'Undefined'.

The General Attributes and the Rock Art Class Specific Attributes will be displayed for the Active Incidence.

The column of check boxes or radio buttons to the left of each attribute are attributes wanted in the selection criteria. You may select any number of attributes wanted by clicking on the attribute's check box or radio button.

The columns of check boxes to the right of each attribute under the Not heading are element attributes not wanted in the selection Criteria. You may select any number of attributes not wanted. The number to the left of the Not check box is the number of elements in the database recorded with this attribute.

Check boxes are multiple choice, radio buttons are single choice within an attribute set. Radio buttons can not be clicked to remove its selection. Therefore, the first option of a radio button set is No Answer that will remove attributes not wanted from selection criteria.

The selection process is a logical AND. Each element selected will have all the selected attributes (left column) and will not have any of the attributes selected under the Not column (right column). If any attribute that has a zero count is checked, there will be zero elements found.

A defined incidence will have the rock art class and the selected attributes displayed beneath the drop down. You may change the rock art class in any incidence by using the drop down. Choosing a different rock art class from the drop down box will redisplay a page with the revised rock art class choice and the incidence will become active.

Clicking on the attributes of a defined incidence will make that incidence Active and the General Attributes and Rock Art Class Specific Attributes will be displayed for the rock art class. You may add, change or delete any selection criteria.

Hyperlinks include: General Attributes, Rock Art Class Attributes (see GeneralAttributes, RockArtClasses).

To continue, click the Submit button. The next undefined incidence will be made Active or the third page will display.

The third page displays each incidence with a rock art class and attribute selections. You may revise the rock art class to be selected in any incidence by using the drop down. Choosing a different rock art class from the drop down box will redisplay a page with the revised rock art class choice and the incidence will become active. Beneath the incidence display are the Search Clusters and Search Panels buttons.

Hyperlinks include: General Attributes, Rock Art Class Attributes (see GeneralAttributes, RockArtClasses).

To continue, click either the Search Clusters or Search Panels button.

The fourth page will show a table with all the combinations of Element Coincidence and the Number of matching Clusters or Panels. Select a Coincidence by clicking on the corresponding radio button.

Hyperlinks include: General Attributes, Rock Art Class Attributes (see GeneralAttributes, RockArtClasses).

To continue, click the Submit button.

The fifth page will show a table with a list of surveys satisfying the selection critera. You may select any number of surveys by clicking the survey's corresponding check box or none to select all the surveys satisfying the selection coincidence.

Hyperlinks include: Area, General Attributes, Rock Art Class Attributes (see ShowMaps, GeneralAttributes, RockArtClasses).

To continue, click the Submit button.

The sixth page displays each incidence with a rock art class and attribute selections. The cluster or panels satisfying the selection criteria are displayed in incidence, site, cluster number, panel letter and element number sequence.

Hyperlinks include: General Attributes, Rock Art Class Attributes, Element ID, RGB, Cluster, Panel, Element (see GeneralAttributes, RockArtClasses, ElementCaptions), Prior, page number, Next (see PageNumbers).

Buttons

  • Submit: accepts the request and takes the application to the next page.

  • Search Clusters: the application will search for clusters which satisfy the coincidence selection criteria.

  • Search Panels: the application will search for panels which satisfy the coincidence selection criteria.

  • Change Survey: takes you to the fifth page displaying a list of surveys satisfying the selection coincidence.

  • Change Coincidence: takes you the fourth page with the incidence, their attribute selections and a table with all the combinations of Element Coincidence and the Number of matching Clusters will be displayed.

  • Topo Chart: opens a new window displaying a topo chart for a survey with red highlighted cluster numbers showing the location of the elements matching the selection criteria. If multiple surveys are selected, the topo charts for the first survey will be displayed and a list of other surveys will follow.

  • Menu: takes you back to the Main Menu.
