  5. Hi Jasmin, Sorry, but the RockWorks 2D striplogs capabilities were designed for cross-sections (i.e., simple & uncluttered) whereas LogPlot is designed to accommodate massive, multi-page headers complete with location maps, drilling information, company logos, etc. Sincerely, Jim Reed Geologist/Programmer
  6. Is there any way to create a single 2D striplog in Rockworks with a header in tabular form that contains the data of the borehole such as coordinates, date of drilling, etc.? Is it possible to export the striplog with header with a specific layout (defined margins and header and footer)? Thank you
  7. Interesting problem. If you set up your images for display within the Images \ Vertical \ Multiple program and then use the Graphics \ Images \ Vertical \ Images -> XYZC program, you will get a list of fifty-zillion XYZC points, one for each pixel within each image. I'm thinking that we could add a filter to this program whereby the user specifies a color so that the program would extract the XYZ for the uppermost and lowermost pixel with that color for every column within the image. The output would be a X,Y,Z1,Z2 list with Z1 being the elevation of the highest point and Z2 being the elevation of the lowest point. Grids based on this data could then be used to compute the volumetrics. But ... there is an important caveat; the selected color would have to be unique which means that gradational colors within the image and other intervals with the same color would cause problems. The solution is to use an image manipulation program such as PaintShopPro to "posterize" the images and then flood-fill the image to make sure that each zone has a unique color. If this sounds viable, send me an email (jim@rockware.com) and we'll start coding. - Jim Reed.
  8. Hi, I'm actually working as a geophysicist and we recently pur our hands on Rockwork. After some manipulations, i m confronted with a problem for which i cannot find a simple and effective solution. Context : We use images (electrical tomography imagine indicating the different horizons observed (based on resistivity)) that we lay out in 3D. However for some cases we would like to estimate the volume of these different horizons. I specifiy that we dont have precise XYZ coordinates of these horizon or GridMap. So far the ideas i have explored have been : - Using the 3D diagramm (Rockplot 3D file) and digitizing points. These are then used to create a Grid ; - Creation of a colored mask (by third party software)on the horizon and attempted to create a 3D model by color recognition ; - Finally the last try was to create fictitious drillings along the image and to define here the depths of the various horizons. Even if this method seems the most efficient (accuracy of measurements), it should take a long time to be carried out. I take advantage of my debut on the Rockwork forum, to try to find the most effective solution possible ? Thank in advance and i hope someone has the miracle answer.
  9. The easiest way to handle this is to zip up the project folder and send that to the other user. They should be able to simply unzip the folder and then select it through the Project Folder | Open menu. These projects can get pretty large, so you may want to clear out files or folders that they do not need to look at. Best Regards, Alison
  10. I can't seem to find an answer to the question on the form, but it seems it has to have been asked before... kind of newbie question. How do share a copy of my rockworks project and it's files with someone else so they can open it on their computer using rockworks?
  11. Thank you for your reply. I played around with the sink and pressure settings, at now my model flows. However, I still get the error message and there are no data to plot. Therefore, it would be great, if you wounld have a look at my SIM file. Thanks for that opportunity Test model.sim
  12. Mette Lise, I would really need to look at your model to know what is going on, but it sounds like there is a problem with your initial conditions, or perhaps with a sink or source. The runlog.out file is only created if you have chemical reactions turned on for a model, so it makes sense that this is not being created. You could look through the flow.out file for "Data Initialization" errors that might pop up before a model takes a time step. If the model does run through some time steps, then there could be "Cannot Find Parameter" errors that might indicate a problem with a sink or source setting (for example a pressure or temperature value that is not supported by the simulator). Please feel free to send your SIM file to me so that I can take a look. Best Regards, Alison
  13. I'm a new user of PetraSim wondering why my model will not run. I've read through the previous topic "Problem with runlog.out and flow.out files" as I get the same error when I try to run the model. However, I think my issue is much more basic. My model is very simple; 4 cells with standard values in most settings. For now, I'm only looking at getting the model to flow, and I have disabled the chemical simulations. The error I get is this seen below: I have access to the flow.out file, but a runlog.out file is not created. Any suggestions to what I'm doing wrong?
  14. Alison, Thank you very much for your reply. BR Mette Lise
  15. Mette Lise, This is unfortunately not possible in PetraSim. When importing files that would help to define layer elevations in a model, there is an option to rotate the data about an XY point, but this rotates the data, rather than rotating the mesh. Best Regards, Alison
  16. Does anybody know if there is a way to make a simple rotation of a grid (adding a strike to the model)? BR Mette Lise
  17. A new version of RockWorks2022 was uploaded to the RockWare website, with bug fixes, improvements, and new features. The RockWorks Revision History includes complete lists, by date, of all changes in the program. New Features: The Input Columns sub-menu that is shared by the programs within the HydroChem menu (Durov, Piper, Schoeller, Stiff, Stiff Map, Ion Balance, Total Dissolved Solids, and Ion Report) now includes options that determine if the input data is in mg/L (milligrams per liter) or mEq/L (milliequivalents per liter). A new option titled "Isolate Geobody that Includes Point Source" has been added to ModOps Solid menu. The solid display options used by many of the RockWorks programs has been re-designed such that IsoMeshes may now be plotted in combination with a voxel diagram. The IsoMesh options within RockWorks now provide greater control over which lines will be plotted and their spacing. A button titled "Close Sub-Menus" has been added to the Layout pull-down menu. The Graphics / Images / Vertical / Single program now includes a tab labeled “Margins”. If enabled, the endpoint coordinates are projected outward to accommodate additional annotation outside of the actual profile. Added 'Edit' menu item to allow user to combine two data types. This works for Stratigraphy, Lithology, Well Construction, Aquifers, Bitmaps, I-Data, I-Text, P-Data, P-Text and T-Data Types Tables. Improvements: The IsoSurface display options now includes an option to display the cap and cutaways as contoured or solid. The Input/Output Models, Cutoff Levels, and Remove Smaller Geobodies submenus within the ModOps / Solid / Filters / GeoBody Filter menu have been consolidated into a single tabbed page. The message that appears upon startup without an internet connection is more explanatory. If less than two boreholes are selected when using the Borehole Manager / Striplogs / Lithology Picker or Stratigraphy Picker, a more explanatory message will be displayed. A concentration option has been added to the Inverse Distance Weighting algorithm for gridding, It adds a non-linear weighting based on distance to the modelling to show a concentrated contouring around data points. Added menu item for Stratigraphy and Lithology Types Tables, the option to turn off all units/materials. 3D Polynomial Trend Modeling changed to use dynamic arrays so it is no longer limited to 2000 points, and all the points are added at once to eliminate re-dimensioning the array at each point. When importing RockWork data types into the Keyword editor you can now choose between the new entry and the current entry when there is a duplicate. The Keyword editor will also prompt you to save when exiting the dialog. Bug Fixes The Graphics >Animate >RockPlot 3D File now correctly generates a video when using the Advanced option. The QuickMap display of the project image was not using the World File or Manual position settings. If less than two boreholes are selected when using the Borehole Manager / Striplogs / Lithology Picker or Stratigraphy Picker, and the Continue button is selected, the program will no longer generate an Access Violation error message.

  19. Mark, also, an easy work around would probably be for you to export an ASCII file through ArcToolbox. This format is also supported in the Grid | Import menu in RockWorks. Best Regards, Alison
  20. Hi Mark; This is going to sound really lame, but ... we're currently in the process of rewriting the entire grid import code to be more accommodating to GeoTiffs. Specifically, we're switching to the GDAL library that ESRI, MapInfo, AutoCAD, etc. use. After two months, we're just a few days from releasing a beta version which I would be glad to send to you if you'd like to try it out. I've spent the last three days running USGS 1 arc-second and 1-meter GeoTiff files through the program and just discovered a bug that I'm working on this evening. Haven't had a chance to run a GeoTiff generated by ArcMap yet, but will within the next 24 hours. In the meantime, if you'd like to send me one or more of your GeoTiff files, I'll send you back a RockWorks grid(s) but I'll need to know the desired dimensions of the output grid. Best regards, Jim Reed jim@rockware.com
  21. I am trying to import a TIFF raster generated in ArcGIS to RockWorks as my ground surface. I keep getting the error "Invalid XY units - Undefined". I have checked that the xy extent of my TIFF encloses my project extent. The TIFF and project are in the same datum and units. I have adjusted several raster export settings in ArcGIS and generated several files with different settings (good ol' trial and error) and get the same error. Can you please tell me what else could specifically triggers this error?
  22. Peter, The Triangulation Surface, as well as the Gridding tools in RockWorks are really designed to work with XY "Z" data, or XY "Rho" data in your case. You would need to somehow convert your XYZ data to "XY" data where X is distance along the profile and Y is elevation. A better solution might be to create a solid model of your data through the Solid | Create | XYZG to Solid tool. This will create an RwMod file. You can then use the Solid | Profile tool to cut a profile through the RwMod file. Please take a look at these tools and let me know if you have any questions or problems. Best Regards, Alison
  23. Hi, I want to create a colored contour map of a geoelectric profile (3D-Plane). I have data in the format: X, Y, Z, Rho (Rho = resistivity) I thought that the program Utilities > 3-D > Triangulation Surface would be the right thing to use, but even though the program runs without error, there doesn't seem to be any output. Is there something fundamentally wrong with my approach? Thanks, peter 3-D-Triangulation-Surface.RwMnu XLS2RU_01.RwDat Geoelectrics_3D-Triangulation-Surface.zip
  24. Josh, Yes, you could do the same thing with a top contacts (leave them blank if the upper portion of the unit has been eroded away). Also, you may want to look into use the "Dip" gridding algorithm, which would allow you to specify a bedding orientation at contacts where this is known. You would need to populate the Dip and Dip Direction fields in the Stratigraphy Table in the Borehole Manager, which are hidden by default. Here are some steps to use to show these in the interface: 1. In the Stratigraphy table, click the Tab Manager button. The Tab Manager window should open up. 2. Make sure that Stratigraphy is selected and click "Edit Fields". 3. Click on the Top and Base Dip Direction and Dip Angle fields, and click OK (and then OK to close the Tab Manager). If you have a constant Dip Direction (which 90 degrees to Strike) and Dip Angle for all of the units in the model, I would populate these fields for all of the populated contacts. You should leave non-intersected contacts at the top and base of each borehole blank, without a depth or orientation information. When creating the Stratigraphy model, you should use the "Dip" algorithm, rather than Kriging or Inverse Distance. You might need to experiment with limiting the number of points used during the interpolation. The more points you use, the smoother the surfaces. Please feel free to send us your data if you are having a hard time with this project. We'd be happy to take a look and provide additional advice! You can send a backup of your project to tech@rockware.com. Best Regards, Alison
  25. Does the same logic apply to the top intersection, say A-Horizon, such that you make it blank and 1.5m? I have a similar 3 strat problem with incomplete units throughout. I'm having a lot of trouble trying to get a strat model from stratigraphy all dipping about 15 degress in the same direction and almost the same dip as the slope. Is there a preferred modelling method for modelling stratigraphy that is inclined as even with kriging I seem to get the search going horizontally. Thanks, Josh
  26. Hi Alison Unfortunately I've not had any success. I'll attach my files: shp datasheet (as imported into RockWorks Grid as created by XYZ to Grid the Bugreport when the XYZ to Grid crashed. I think it crashed when it should have displayed the result. I'll send the files to tech@rockware.com Thanks, Peter
  27. Peter, thanks for the clarification! You can extract elevations from the contour line vertices into the Datasheet using the File | Import | SHP menu. Once you've created an .RwDat file that contains the XYZ elevations, you can created a grid based on this data through the Grid | Create | XYZ to Grid program. The grid can be displayed as a 2D contour/color map, or as a 3D surface. Some things to mention: 1. You'll want to make sure that the units and coordinate system assigned to the X, Y and Z columns in the RwDat file are accurate. 2. You should be sure that the Grid Dimensions specified in the Dimensions tab (towards the top of the RockWorks window) match the data you've imported. I hope this helps. If you run into any problems, it would help if we could take a look at your shapefile. You can send this to tech@rockware.com. Best Regards, Alison
