  1. Export to Point Shapefile

    thanks molly thats perfect! I know this question is unrelated to rockworks.. but how on earth did you get that raster to display in arcscene?!?! it seems to be impossible for me!
  2. Export to Point Shapefile

    Hello! I am trying to display the 3D subsoil models created in rockworks in arc scene - the easiest way i can think to do this is to export the model to an ESRI point shapefile - but this file only contains the Z values of the data and no lithology data!! why?! In the picture attached to the help about ESRI point shapefile export - the point file seems to have a legend displaying values which i hope are the lithology values! How can i export both the z-values and the lithology? Thank you! Alice
  3. Definition of a voxel model

    Hello! I was hoping i could easily find this somewhere on the internet but i cant.. What is the rockworks definition of a voxel model? What processes does the programme go through when creating these models? What decisions does it make? Are there any sceintific journals related to the topic which rockworks used in its development? I have looked online but couldnt find anything even remotely useful! Thank you
  4. Importing 2D subsoil models

    Hello! I have been asked to find out whether it is possible to import 2D subsoil models into rockworks and then use the programme to extrapolate between these models to create a 3D solid model? Our clients will often have soil profiles which have already been created - if we could then import these into rockworks and extrapolate between them it would be very useful! Thank you!
  5. How to import data into rockworks

    I have just been investigating LAS files - is there a function in rockworks to classify the data they contain? Or must that be done by hand?
  6. How to import data into rockworks

    Thank you Alison, I was also wondering if there was a way of editing the data once you have imported it into rockworks? Would importing LAS files be the same as importing the Fugro CPT files - we just have to get our .gef files into .las format? Thanks again!
  7. Hello - I am working on a script which will hopefully automatically process out CPT and borehole data into a format readable by rockworks. Currently all of our borehole and CPT data is in .GEF format (standard in the netherlands). Does anyone have any recommendations as to which import format would be the easiest for us to transform our data into? Currently we use excel tables. There is an option for importing Fugro CPTS (we are the netherlands branch of Fugro) but i am unfamiliar with this format as stupid as it sounds..! I was also wondering if there is a way in rockworks to edit interpretation of CPTs? Thank you! I am having a difficult time find any of this data on the internet or in the help or anything!
  8. Importing Shapefiles

    hmm.. sadly they ARE different in the GIS (however the values are different to those XY in rockworks puzzlingly enough) but i have no idea why! Is there any way to manually adjust the XY in rockworks? That might be easier than worring about co-ordinate systems in Arcmap!
  9. Importing Shapefiles

    Hello! Thank you! - ive created 2 grid files from the same polygon (i transformed them both to rasters at different heights and exported them as ASCIIs). When i attempt to filter the model i get an error saying that the 2 grids have to have the same XY co-ordinates!! The grids must have the same XY dimensions. Grid #1 Name = Sand_Gulley_Grid_-10.grd Grid #2 Name = Sand_Gulley_Grid.grd Grid #1 X Nodes = 264 , Grid #2 X Nodes = 517 Grid #1 Y Nodes = 250 , Grid #2 Y Nodes = 486 Grid #1 X Min = 198,200.883565 , Grid #2 X Min = 198,200.643565 Grid #1 Y Min = 502,757.725095 , Grid #2 Y Min = 502,757.485095 Grid #1 X Spacing = 0.98 , Grid #2 X Spacing = 0.5 Grid #1 Y Spacing = 0.98 , Grid #2 Y Spacing = 0.5 They are only different by less than 1! And i created the grids from the same shapefile so they should be the same - is there any way to edit their XY to make them the same? I cant think of anyway to do this in GIS because im pretty sure that in the GIS both of their XYs are the same because theyre in exactly the same place!! Thank you!
  10. Importing Shapefiles

    Hello, I have been trying to figure out how to do this for a few days now.. If i know that there's a sand layer (for example) missing from my data - which i know is there due to my own knowledge - but we dont have borehole data for that area - how can i add this into a model i have already made in rockworks? I make a shapefile in Arcmap of the area which needs to be sand - but obviously this is only 2D and i can't quite get my head around how to easily do this by hand. I am aware i can edit 3D models but this is in no way precise and is very fiddly! If i have a shapefile of the area - is there anyway to then import it into my 3D lithology model and add a depth to it so it can be displayed in 3D? Im very confused! Thank you in advance! Alice
  11. Exporting to Arcmap

    Thank you tom that is exactly what i was looking for!
  12. Exporting to Arcmap

    Sorry i should of been more clear - I am trying to export the top layer of points and the bottom layer of points for every soil layer in the model. When i export an ASCII file it exports ALL of the points - including those between the start and the end of a layer. Is there a way to only export these points, to reduce the size of the output? so instead of this: Depth Soil Type 1 Sand 1.1 Sand 1.2 Sand 1.3 Sand 1.4 Sand 1.5 Clay I would have this: Depth Soil Type 1 Sand 1.5 Clay
  13. Exporting to Arcmap

    Hello! I was wondering if anyone had any idea how to exportspecific points to an ASCII file? Basically i only want to export the top and bottom setsof points to the ASCII file - to save both time and space! But i have no idea how to go about it!
