In the oil industry a well survey is usually displayed by a series of points connected by arcs. An arc is very close to the actual path a drill will take between points on a survey. Survey points are about 90 feet apart, so connecting them with a straight line looks ugly. Which method should I override to accomplish this?
If I get ambitious, I may also consider using Bezier curves to connect points, as this could be useful to represent geological boundaries as a background for my well survey plots.
I have attached a picture showing the type of plots I need to make. The red line is a survey and the background represents geological layers. The survey is presently connected with straight lines, which makes it difficult to determine precisely where the survey intercept the boundaries.
While it is impossible to draw splines, bezier curves or arcs with SciChart out of the box, we do have a very well documented workaround on creating a Spline series using our CustomRenderableSeries API.
Take a look at the following KB article Creating a Custom Spline Line Series.
You might find this useful as a starting point. We also have a fully featured application in the SciChart Examples Suite -> Create A Custom Chart -> Spline Line Series.
