Structural Lineament Diagrams

  • A full circle lineament can display orientational values (e.g., orientation of lineaments), or directional values (e.g., direction of fold axes), depending on the option you choose while plotting the graph.
  • The lineament graph types include full circle (symmetric for orientational data, or asymmetric for directional data) and half circle.
