Create multi-column stratigraphic charts from tab-delimited text spreadsheet data.

1) Use StratChart 2 to create single or multi-column stratigraphic charts (from text files).
2) Create several charts at the same scale (save as a PICT file or copy to the clipboard).
3) Assemble the charts side-by-side in a graphics application, such as Canvas or Intaglio, etc.

Open a tab-delimited ASCII TEXT file that contains the stratigraphic information.
The column specifications must be organized into a file with at least* 3 columns as follows:

Name (text)[tab]top(number)[tab]base(number)¶

1) The first column must contain names or text to print in the box.
2) The second column must contain the top location of the box.
3) The third column must contain the base of the box.
4) Save results to a file, or copy to the clipboard and paste into a montage.
Data output is formatted as PICT.

*Other, more detailed, data input formats are available.

The timescale below was created with StratChart, SequenceStratColumn and
assembled in Adobe Illustrator.


Here is a simple 3 column example of Tertiary biozones
that required very little post-plot work with Intaglio.
