Station Sequences

Top  Previous  Next

If you are managing the data for a large cave system, keeping track of which station names have been used and which are free can be daunting. This option displays a list of stations that have been organized into sequences that make it easy to see which station name have been used and which are available.


Sequences. Most survey station are composed of sequences of letter or numbers. For example, “A1, A2, A3, A4” would be a typical station sequence. COMPASS would display this sequence as “A(1-4)”. The program can also show alphabetical sequences like “A2(a-f)”. (Thanks to Peter Bosted for the idea and the basic algorithm.)


Excluded Sequences. Stations that have been excluded from process by using the X flag are displayed at the end of the list in a separate section.


Here is a sample list of station sequences:
