    Here is a screen shot
  4. Rockworks15 (Faults)

    Hi Tom I have a project where I have about 1/3 of the project area which is faulted. I am trying to get the 2-D models and surfaces I create for my stratigraphy model to interpolate Fault Polylines. I entered fault trace data into the "Gridding Options," Fault tab/ table and when I process there is no change made. I have tried several different ways to correct this but I cant seem to get the fault polyline to even appear on a 2-D map. Thanks Earl
  5. DEM and XYZ Temperature data

    Hi Tom. Thank you again for your imediate responce. Please have a look in the attached image. on the top left image i depict the DEM (vertically exagerated by 10). on the top right is the temperature solid model. the image at the bottom is filtering the solid model with dtm (vertically exagerated by 5). It does not seem to follow the topography. What could the problem be? Thank you in advance Nikos

  7. DEM and XYZ Temperature data

    Hi Nikos, One way to model your data is to use the Utilities gridding and solid modeling menus. Choose the Utilities Map | Grid-Based Map menu to grid the DTM XYZ. Choose the Utilities Solid | Model menu to create a solid model of the XYZ temperature data. Choose the Utilities Solid | Filters | Grid Filters | One Bounding Grid menu to filter the model with the DTM grid and replace the nodes above ground with NULL. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  8. DEM and XYZ Temperature data

    Dear Tom, Hello again. I would like to continue my question to another problem. I have the DTM (XYZ) and I have another dataset of XYZ and Temperatures measured in 18boreholes. So I want to display the distribution of temperature in the area in 3D. There is a video (using XY and sodium) in youtube on that but its not my case. Could you please help me again? My kind regards Nikos
  9. Plot Correlations

    Hi Pat, Turn off the option to "Create Pinchouts Within Linear Correlations" on the right side of the menu for Striplogs | 2D | Section pane to remove the pinchouts. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  10. Plot Correlations

    When plotting correlation lines for Stratigraphy, if the corresponding well log does not have a matching geology unit the correlation line forms a point and plots back to the originating log. See the attached graphic for an example of this behavior. Is there a setting or method to tell rockworks to not draw this line when no corresponding segment exists in the adjacent log? section.bmp
  11. LogPlot8 supports Unicode characters, but older versions did not, and many non-English-language characters were not supported. If you are a Windows10 user, here are some steps you can follow to display specific language characters in programs which are not Unicode-compatible. Open the Windows Control Panel. Click Time and Language. Click Region and Language. Scroll down, below the languages which are displayed, and click Administrative Language Settings. Under the section "Language for non-Unicode programs" be sure it is set to the desired language. Since old versions of LogPlot do not support Unicode (LogPlot8 does) you have to load this "code page". If it is not set to the desired language, click the Change System Locale button, select the language, and click OK. Click Apply and OK. You may need to restart Windows to apply these changes. Thanks to Tomo for bringing this to our attention! Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc
  12. Some customers have reported getting an Excel error: Call rejected by callee when imported or exporting files. Possible causes include: Norton Antivirus plug-in for Microsoft Office. Unplug from the network and deactivate the plugin. Unregistered or unactivated Excel. Run Excel to register and activate it with the Windows Registry . "Automation Server Busy" if there is a dialog open in Excel or a calculation is in progress. Try again later. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  13. Effective or Total Porosity in TOUGH2 EOS1

    Thanks, Alison. I've posted the same question on the LBL forum. https://tough.forumbee.com/t/3622mk
  14. Effective or Total Porosity in TOUGH2 EOS1

    Jared, I believe that you would want to use effective porosity, but am really not sure about this one. I would recommend that you submit this on the TOUGH forum hosted by LBL. The TOUGH authors are definitely the most qualified people to answer this question. Thanks, Alison
  15. New versions of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) were uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: New Features + RockWorks will now import LAS (Log ASCII standard) version 3.0 into the database. The Reader will still read previous versions 1.2 and 2.0. + You can now add a scalebar to your RockPlot3D scenes, at the top or bottom of the view. You can also specify a vertical and horizontal offset. Improvements + If RockWorks cannot load a project image, it will display a more informative message for the user. + Implemented code to protect against importing text longer than the database field size for Types Tables Fixes + The Stratigraphy Grids to Logs program now saves the correct grid-based values to the database rather than the original values + Fixed a problem causing a FireDAC error message that would occur when importing data from archived text files + Fixed a problem with Section/Fence location maps in projects with mixed X-Y / Elevation-Depth (meters v feet) units + Stratigraphy rules are improved for projects with mixed X-Y / Elevation-Depth (meters v feet) units To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside RockWorks17. Or visit our website and click on the RockWorks Free Trial tab: https://www.rockware.com/product/rockworks/#product_inquire_form_1494_tab where you can download the installation program and install the new build right over the top of the existing program. (DO NOT uninstall first.) Note that you will not be able to use this new build of the program if your maintenance has expired before September 2018.

  16. Does TOUGH2 EOS1 assume total porosity or effective porosity for water? Is there a built-in conversion from one to the other?
  17. DEM

    Hi Edward and Nikos, Thank you for your comments about RockWorks gridding algorithms. Edward: Please send your data and gridding settings in RockWorks, Surfer, and ArcGIS to [email protected] and we will be happy to pursue your request further. Include graphic examples of the contour maps with annotation indicating what you would like to change. Nikos: I agree with your comments stating that each dataset has unique requirements for choosing gridding algorithms and settings. The user should use their information about the project to choose the right interpretation. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  18. DEM

    Dear Mr Hakanson. Thank you for your comment. My XYZ data was extracted from GIS and I just used a part of it, so it was already gridded. About choosing the appropriate interpolation method, I think it is generally risky to perform automatically algorithms since all of them are designed for datasets with specific staistical properties. None of them is better or worse than others. But that is another big discussion.... I just finished my project but I have time to experiment so as to develop it Thank you again. Nikos
  19. DEM

    Hi, There are many gridding options in Rockworks and the use of each one gives different results depending on the algorithm that you choose which I find to be overwhelming since none of them are particularly attractive. I personally like the type of grids created with SURFER (Krigging) and ArcGIS (TopoToRaster). I have not found one in Rockworks that can reproduce either of these. I would suggest that if you have XYZ data and have plotted it in another program that creates a grid to you liking that you use the Rockworks Utilities Program to import that grid using Utilities/Grid/Import and select the source data format that you have your grid in. There you can give it a name and follow the other steps mentioned above. To put it in shorter terms, my experience has been gridding is NOT one of Rockworks strongpoints and needs to be improved, however it does accept grids created in other programs, which is nice. Best Regards, Edward Hakanson
  20. LogPlot 8 2018.9.10

    New versions of LogPlot8 (32-bit and 64-bit) were released on September 10th, 2018 with the following changes: Improvements + Added an option to switch Font Quality to: Non-Antialiased (current), Antialiased, and Clear Type. Clear Type provides better antialiasing than the Windows standard antialiasing, + When saving a LogPlot 8 Data Template it now populates the filename based on the current Design Template. + When LogPlot8 loads a Design Template it now looks for a Data Template file (.ldatx) with the same name and uses that to create an empty data file. + An interval check has been added to all interval data at compile time. The interval check tests for swapped intervals and intervals with 0 height. Users can choose to swap depth values or ignore then interval for each line or for all lines. Zero height intervals will be skipped. Users can also hide the interval error messages from the compile dialog. + A Smoothing option has been added to Cross Plots and Curves. + Increased the accuracy of the TVD scalebar. + Improved lithology description clipping at the top of the page and long descriptions at the bottom of the page. Bug Fixes + Lithology Descriptions and Well Construction Descriptions whose offsets exceeded past the bottom of the last page now cause the program to add additional pages as needed. + When Importing a Design Template from LogPlot 2005 or older it now creates temporary file in the current Project Folder rather than the folder where the imported file resides. + When Importing a Design Template from LogPlot 2005 or older the page sizes were not being correctly imported. + The Break Curve option was always being set on in the LogDesigner Curve dialog. + Lithology Patterns are now skipped if the interval is less than or equal to zero. For a complete list of the recent changes, please visit: https://www.rockware.com/rockworks/revisions/current_logplot_revisions.htm To download this build, use the Help | Check for Updates menu inside LogPlot8. Or visit the LogPlot Free Trial tab (https://www.rockware.com/product/logplot/#tab-product_inquire_form_1494_tab) where you can download the installation program and install the new build right over the top of the existing program. (DO NOT UNINSTALL first.) Note that you will not be able to use this new build of the program if your maintenance has expired.

  21. Creating a new project

    I thought that was the case but wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something. Thanks for the quick reply!
  22. Creating a new project

    Hi Allison, The easiest way to use a RockWorks 17 project in RockWorks 16 is to export the project to an Excel file, then import it into RockWorks 16. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  23. Creating a new project

    Can I use a RockWorks17 project in RockWorks16? Do I need to convert the .sqlite to a .mdb or does RockWorks do that for me? Thanks!
  24. DEM

    Dear Tom. Thank you a lot for your immediate response. We will try and let you know... Thank you again Nikos
  25. DEM

    Hi NikosSp, To use your XYZ DEM data in your project, choose the Utilities Map | Grid-Based Map to create a RockWorks Grid file (.RwGrd). This file can be plotted on cross-sections to illustrate the ground surface and used to constrain the upper surface of a Stratigraphy model (Stratigraphy | Model | Interpolate Surfaces Options | Constraining Surface) or Lithology model (Lithology | Model | Additional Options | Superface. To combine borehole Stratigraphy information with your datasheet, choose the Borehole Manager File | Transfer menu. Create a RockWorks grid for each surface with the Map | Grid-Based Map menu. Use the Stratigraphy naming convention (formation_TOP, formation_BASE) to add them to a Stratigraphy model. To combine borehole Lithology data with your datasheet, choose the Borehole Manager File | Export | Lithology Data -> Utilities Datasheet menu. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  26. A new version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) was uploaded to the RockWare website on August 30, 2018, with the following changes: New Features: + A new text object, called Anchored Text, has been added to RockPlot2D that consolidates text with a leader line and an optional border that can be filled. The first point entered is the origin and the second point is the position of the top left corner of the text. Move the text and the anchor will stay in place or move the anchor point and the text will stay in place + The "Overlay" option in various 2D map dialogs has been changed to "Additional Layers". The program now allows you to place RP2D layers either above or below the new map content. When the setting is for Below the layers are added in reverse order. + Added an option to switch Font Quality in RockPlot2D to: Non-Antialiased , Antialiased (default), Clear Type or Clear Type Natural. Clear Type and Clear Type Natural provide better antialiasing then the Windows standard antialiasing. Improvements: + Added an option to "Include disabled rows" in datasheet Column Math + Increased precision for the drawing of Stratigraphic Fences + Scientific Notation can now be applied to RockPlot3D Color Legends built from tables + Eliminated banding in RockPlot3D Stratigraphy Model sides panels. + Eliminated jagged edges in RockPlot3D Fence diagrams that require high precision. + RockPlot3D Iso-Surfaces are now drawn with more precision to avoid wavy surfaces. + The P-Data and I-Data GT Compositing now lets you select a maximum cutoff instead of a minimum cutoff. + The Shapefile Exports from RockPlot2D and RockPlot3D now let you select an existing ESRI Projection File (*.prj) to be used with Shapefile. + The Borehole Manager and Utilities Borehole Survey program now adds the ability to only display a report for the depths in the survey data + The Borehole Survey program now allows the user to create a report at only the depths listed in the orientation data. Fixes: + Lines in the RockPlot3D Reference cage have been thickened so that they display more reliably + Surfaces in RockPlot3D weren't calculating normals correctly which caused incorrect lighting artifacts + Thin lines in the RockPlot3D Reference Grid would hide at certain viewing angles + GT Grade X Thickness program was not clearing the correct tracks + Contours in Sections, Profiles and Projected Sections are now drawn correctly + The filename edit is sized out of it dialog in Windows 7 using large fonts + The ReportWorks border options for the Pattern Legend were displaying on the wrong tab. + Plotting gridded 2D Contours generated spurious contours when the G value range was very large. + Sieve diagram symbols are now plotted. + The Stiffmap diagrams were not being rescaled correctly. + The Stratigraphy Picker now prompts for adjustment when the Save button is clicked + The Stratigraphy and Lithology Pickers did not display units correctly when using collar elevation + The Stratigraphy and Lithology Pickers did not display logs hung from the top correctly when using the collar elevation + The Auto-offset now works better in Stiff Map. + The extents of a RockPlot3D scene weren't being set correctly when created from Volumetrics/Extract Solids + The RW15 to RW17 file converter program's items were rearranged, and now the procedures are correctly called.

  27. DEM

    Hello! It is my first time in the forum I have a set of almost 200 boreholes in the borehole manger, so I can make-visualize my stratigraphy and lithology volumes. I also have a DEM of the area in an ascii file (XYZ) which I imported to the utilities And my question is: how could i combine these two datasets? Can i incoporate the DEM to the stratigraphy-lithology data? Thank you in advance Nikos
