  3. Rockworks17 Installation

    Hi Mohammed, I will contact you by email with a solution. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  4. Rockworks17 Installation

    Dear all, I have installed the demo version of Rockworks17 few months ago on my pc. Then, I deleted it at the end of the trial expiry date. Recently, I purchased an academic version of Rockworks17, however, when I tried to re-install it to activate my licence, an error message pops out: Your Trialware has expired. This version will not load. Could you please let me know what is the best way to re-install Rockworks17 to activate my licence? Regards, Mohamed
  5. Latitude Longitude Format

    It sounds like you have the Long/Lat entered on the Other Coordinate Projections but haven't converted them to your Project Coordinate System (UTM). There's a "To Easting/Northing" button on the Other Coordinate Projections tab where you can do them one at a time or go to Edit/Coordinate Converter (to Easting/Northing) to convert all your boreholes.
  6. Latitude Longitude Format

    Hi Mitch: I am also mapped in the Pacific Ocean and this is Day 2 of my using the Rockworks 17 software. My Excel spreadsheet that I imported into the borehole manager has columns with lat and long, which show up in the Borehole Manager, Borehole Data, Location, Other Coordinate Projections, Lon/Lat window correctly. When I manually enter the Lat and Long into Google Earth, the points are projected where they belong, Wyoming. When I click on Borehole Manager, Map, Borehole Locations-Google Earth (simple), the points are mapped in the Pacific Ocean. My whole project is in UTM 13, WGS-84, feet. I use a negative before my longitude, I recalculated all of my northings and eastings using Zonums, verified that my data points map correctly by themselves. Is there, perhaps, a bust in my wells some place that can put the whole map in the ocean? Also, I have not used the Utilities tab yet, so maybe I am premature in asking about the ocean location. I was just clicking around to see where my data set maps. Thanks for your help!
  7. Thank you very much @TomB Your tips helped to clarify a few things for me, I am really glad to be in this forum where a good personalities like you exist in.
  8. Hi Sarika, You can use Excel without the PowerPivot add-on to import and export data between RockWorks and Excel. RockWorks data can be stored in separate sheets in Excel to mirror the database structure in RockWorks. For example, the Location table in RockWorks is stored in an Excel sheet named Location, and the Lithology table in RockWorks is stored in an Excel sheet named Lithology. Refer to the Excel files Samples Training01.xlsx and RockWorks Data Import.xls in the RockWorks \Samples\ folder. You may want to refer to the Microsoft help regarding PowerPivot tables. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  9. Hi Folks, I am new to this Rockwork software. Am glad to keep in touch with you all, I just got access to use this site, I got some trouble with creating PowerPivot Data Model in Excel. Can anyone please give the ways to move further steps. Any suggestion, guidelines are very much appreciated. Thanks for considering
  10. RockWorks16 uses wrong UTM zone?

    Thanks. That does seem to be it.
  11. RockWorks16 uses wrong UTM zone?

    Hi JPascal, It sounds like the projection for the new datasheet is incorrect. Set the correct zone in the pane to the right of the sheet. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc.
  12. I have two utilities worksheets that have identical coordinates in the same project. The one created some time ago will create a map and place it correctly in Zone 13. The one created today with exactly the same numbers creates a map and places it in Zone 12. I've changed no settings. These are two utility databases in the same project. I simply load the other file and render a map with the exact same values. Earlier I transferred my utility datasheet to boreholes and the program converted UTM meters to the appropriate UTM feet. When I transfer the new data sheet to boreholes within the same project it converts the numbers to crazy things. Easting 358713.362 UTM meters is converted to Easting -627396.6969 UTM feet. It should be 1176881.1089 feet. If I create a new project and tell it not to use a template but to use new settings and set everything up fresh with zone 13 and import my data sheet from excel and if I have *exactly* the easting and northing that I want, be they in meters or if I already have them converted to feet and I am careful to have them properly labeled for UTM feet with the correct units specified, the program applies a conversion to them and I get the same crazy -600,000 numbers and maps that put me in Zone 12. I am at a complete loss to understand why UTM feet in the utility table would have a conversion applied when transferred to the borehole manager with the exact same units specified.
  13. Error: "RockPack III has expired"

    When you run the program As Administrator, you'll probably see the RockPack III - Registration Form window. Name: Enter your name into this prompt. Company: Enter your company name into this prompt. Serial Number: If you purchased a license, enter the RockWare-supplied Serial Number into that prompt. If you are using the software in Demo mode, leave the Serial Number field blank. Click OK. The main RockPack III program window will be displayed. Use the Help menu to access documentation.

  20. A new version of RockWorks17 (64- and 32-bit) was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following changes: New Features: + Vertical Images to Polylines and Vertical Image To Polyline programs have been added to the Utilities / Imagery menu. It takes a raster image and splits it to the segments of a polyline (RwDat). + Deviated and Inclined boreholes can now be plotted in TVD (True Vertical Depth) in 2D Logs, Sections and Projected Sections. + EZMap 3D creates a 3D Delaunay Triangle Network and displays color contours based on a G Value for display in RockPlot3D. + Dogleg Severity and GridX (horizontal distance from KB x) and GridY (vertical distance from KB y) have been added to the Borehole Survey Report. + The RockPlot2D Export to RockPlot3D now exports Profiles as vertical panels. + The RockPlot2D Scalebar can now also be displayed with an alternating bar style. + Added ability when creating a new project from an existing project, to copy of any/all of their other project files: RwDat, Rw2D,RwGrd, RwMod, Rw3d, RwRpt, Rcl (or for RockWorks15 ATD, GRD, MOD, RK6, R3DXML, RW6, RCL - converted) Enhancements: + Users can now select a specific aquifer to plot in 2D striplogs. + RockWorks Data Dictionary version was updated to version 33. This adds 3 fields to work with Custom coordinate projections + The single point coordinate converter calculates only the output projections selected. + The Borehole Manager Other Coordinate Projections was re-worked to use a common frame for the projection information. + The Transfer between the Borehole Manager and the Utilities datasheet will use feet/meters for projection units (SPC, UTM, Local) + Prompts are displayed on startup for missing Documents or AppData folders. + The Symbol color for the vector symbol for each borehole was not being exported (Text and Excel) and therefore not being re-imported. + To compliment the sub-project feature the section, profile, fence and projected section pickers now display all the enabled boreholes in a project. The Truncate option has been exposed in the section selection dialog so that it can be disabled fro selecting boreholes outside of the project. + Comments for the Location can now be imported (Text/Excel) when the comments are greater than 8k. This was an issue when using SQL Server as the database engine. + The Polygon Clipping using RockPlot2D polygons now ignores polylines (e.g. contours) and polygons that are hidden. Fixes: + I-Data Striplog colors didn't match the model colors for the same value when using a color table. + Borehole Manager Adjust Total Depths will now work when the data for Stratigraphy has only Tops + When working with Stratigraphy Types Table, RockWorks will check both the Stratigraphy and Production tables for any deletes or reassignments of type values + The single point coordinate converter was not always correctly determining if the user was looking for values to be in feet or meters for the output. + RockPlot 2D once again allows coordinate conversions to Longitude/Latitude in Decimal Degrees. + Excel writer was not dimensioning the array sufficiently for the added PJParams value in the Units tab + An issue with Windows Large fonts setting has been fixed. + Fixed a text size issue with Windows 10 and builds starting with 17134 when set for large fonts (>100%) that caused some menu items to not be visible. + Fixed text placement in the 2D Log Designer window. + The Section, Profile, Fence and Projected Section selection map no longer display at a reduced size. + The defaults for the Superface and Subface replacement values is now the RW NULL. + Solid | Filters | RockPlot2D Polygon Clip no longer creates an error if the RP2D map does not contain any polygons.

  21. Printer for LogPlots

    There are many printers that capacity to print of longest lent of papers or continues the length of papers. Epson Stylus Color printer has more capacity to print long paper size because of it has large ink cartridges. Ricoh printer support is very expert in mange cartridges problem or issues when it long run happens
  22. Excel import window not displaying correctly

    Oh boy! Thanks, Tom. Yet another one of those pesky senior moments!
  23. Excel import window not displaying correctly

    Hi Charlie, Specify the Excel file name and the program will display the Excel sheets and columns and the corresponding RockWorks table names and fields. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  24. All, This occurred on my machine today (screenshot attached), running W10 Home (64-bit) with the latest updates both to the OS and RW17. The window for importing Excel files, either as multiple tables or as single tables, is not showing the full array of tabs, menus, options, etc. The import windows for other formats are displaying correctly. I just re-installed the latest version of RW17 this morning thinking corrupt file(s) somewhere, but behavior still manifests. Any ideas? Also, probably not remotely related, but running a database integrity check told me my bitmap file name field was too long and was being shortened from some huge number (like 32,***) to the standard 80 character length. Thanks much, Charlie
  25. Export to MODFLOW

    Dear Alison, thanks for following up my post, great news! I am so excited to try that new feature in the coming versions of Rockworks. I'll appreciate to have any further information about it. Sincerely, Rudy
  26. Export to MODFLOW

    Dear Rudyabo, Thank you for your input, we are currently working on some tools that will allow both RockWorks RwGrd files and block models (representing lithology, permeability, etc) to be imported into the Groundwater Vistas MODFLOW interface. If you are interested in learning more about these, feel free to contact me and I will send you additional information (we are currently working on a case study covering these tools). Best Regards, Alison Alison @ RockWare.com
  27. Export to MODFLOW

    Dear Rockworks Developers, In some cases, a lithological model can replicate complex geology and aquifer heterogenities better than stratigraphic models. Rockworks is already integrated with an attractive tool requiers more attention and effort for further development. As already known, Rockworks are being used by hydrogeologists for decades, helping by interpreting and modeling their hydrochemical and hydrological data, thus, it would be great to see type of link or coupling between Rockworks and available groundwater modeling GUI (e.g. Aquaveo GMS, GW Vistas, Visual Modflow..). So far, the Export - Modflow function utilize a .Dis dimesnion file to export different zones of each specified G Value, but constructing a conceptual model requers thicking about different way to do that.. So it would be so great to make it possible to export a lithological model into another Modflow format (e.g. .NAM, .IN ...etc). thanks for your consideration
