Optional – If you have more than one location that is very closely related to this location (eg. a second borehole a few meters away), you can press the Add button again to start a location group. This would be appropriate, for example, if the geology was recorded for only one of these two locations. When you add a second location an additional check box is added to the form so you can choose which of the locations is the main or master location. In the borehole example, this would be the one with the recorded geology.

4.        Press the Add button. A new row will be inserted and some default text will be displayed. Edit the default text with the interval name that you wish to use. Select from the Interval Type drop down list the type of data that will be monitored by this interval (eg. Groundwater Monitor). If the interval type you wish to use is not in the list, press the Int Types button to edit/manage interval types. Add as many intervals as is necessary and for each, make sure it associated with the correct location.
