List Boxes

Analysis Box: This box displays the type of analysis (e.g., general, human health, etc.). For a new file, only General is available. General is the default choice and simply means that the data will be used in a straightforward way without applying any other framework or models, such as risk. To use other analyses, set up human health, ecological, MARSSIM, or custom. After selecting an analysis, the interviews will change to display the appropriate actions for that analysis and the windows will change to reflect the data.

Data Type Box: This box displays the type of data. These can be media (e.g., soil, sediment, groundwater, etc.), Basic (when media is unimportant to the user or unspecified during file setup), Geobayesian, or Results Gallery (where the user dynamically saves spatial models). When a new data type is selected, the Data Name box changes to reflect the data for that data type. The interviews may also change depending on the data type selected.

Data Name Box: This box displays the name of the data. When the data type is Media, this box will list available analytes. When the data type is Basic, this box may list analytes and/or other information about the data (e.g., density). When the data type is Geobayesian, this box will display any professional judgment data names defined by the user. The Graphics Window will change when a new data name is selected.

Labels Box: This box displays information about the data set (e.g., depth, name, casnumber, etc.). When a label is selected, the Graphics Window will display the selected labels next to every data point. Note that the default setting for this box is [none].

Layers Box: This box displays the different layers for data set, if the data set is three-dimensional. To add, delete, or alter layers, see Layering Approach.
