  1. Control points are the known depths of the formation top and bottom. You get these from borehole data, ideally although you could create an imaginary well from a good cross section. With one or more imaginary wells well you can “define” the depth of the Proterozoic at different locations on your grid. Also it looks like there is a gap between the Cretaceous and the Proterozoic in your block model that you may need to look at. Best Regards.
  2. Hi JamesH. I used RW16 in the past and use RW17 now. There is not much difference between versions so I think that maybe these suggestions could be useful. Regarding the Proterozoic cutting through the Paleozoic that could be related to the grid you are using for the Proterozoic so one option would be to make more control points to tweak your grid. Also check the number next to your units. RW interprets lower numbers as overlying units. However you may be OK there because your legend is OK. As for the map try making the maps that you need separately and then doing an append. Another suggestion is to try different gridding algorithms. I generally get satisfactory results using Inverse Distance (Kriging doesn’t work well for me in RW). Another neat trick that you can try is gridding the data in SURFER or ARCGIS if you have them and importing the data to RW using Utilities. Best of luck to you!
  3. Hi Vincent, I think that you can just turn off the well types that you do not want to show up on your section. Remember that deviated wells do not plot properly in sections. If you have deviated wells I would suggest plotting a profile. In either case, try just turning off the wells that you do not want to project.
  4. Hi, I am using Rockworks 17 Advanced and can select the "other" coordinates for custom projection without any problem. The issue is that one of my coworkers is also using Rockworks 17 Advanced and he the tab for "other" does not come up on his computer (he can only see the options of Local, SPC and UTM). What may be causing this?
  5. I use Rockworks 17 Advanced. I can create custom projections but a co-worker that also uses Rockworks 17 advanced cannot. What might be causing this?

    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
  7. Hi, I see that in Rockworks 17 2D Striplogs there is an option to plot a deviated borehole vertically. That is great, however it plots the measured depth and not the true vertical depth. Please make it so that the measured depth is displayed but alongside the true vertical length. I have achieved this effect by setting the azimuth constant and viewing the borehole head on so that I only visualize the effect for borehole inclination. This method works but would be smoother if incorporated with plot vertically in the 2D Striplog option. I suggest that there be an option for this in the borehole sections too (they plot wells vertically but of the measured depth so adjacent boreholes are not comparable to one another). I know that Rockworks can do this. Please include it in your programming language (maybe it could be done with with an RCL extension that says something like .... Inclination True, Azimuth False ... or something like that). Best Regards, Edward Charles Hakanson Gregory
  8. Maybe you could generate a P-Text file and plot it alongside your P-Data.
  9. One thing that you might try is creating rotated text in RW2D and then linking that file to your Reportworks file.
  10. Try adjusting the VE of your model and boreholes individually and then do an append. This may work.
  11. Hi. I face a similar problem when I map down hole clay samples. I have found that entering 0s works when what I want is a 2D log but if it is 3D then simply omitting values where there is no detection best. It really depends on how you want to display the data. However I would like to know what the optimum method is from an experienced Rockworks user.
  12. Hi Aditya, Another thing that you may want to try if it is the description of thin units that is causing you problems is to widen the column where the lithological text is plotted. If this is unpractical then you may want to try including the text descriptions as I-Text which would allow you to create multiline text and plot it alongside your lithologic column. This, in addition to Brian's suggestion, may help you out. Edward
  13. Hi, I need to copy some specific information from one RW16 project to another. For example, I need to know an easy way to transfer new P-data that has been entered into one Project for 59 different wells into another Project which contains the same wells. Also, I need to know how to do the same with stratigraphy and lithology data. I have tried transferring p-data to a text file and then opening it in Excel to later import the Excel file to the p-data table (which worked) but would like to know if there is a simpler way of doing it. Also regarding the stratigraphy data I tried transferring it to the Utilities Datasheet to then save the rwdat file and open it up in another Project. However when I tried to transfer that new information from the Utilities Datasheet to the Borehole manager in my second Project it didn’t transfer anything. Soon I will need to do the same with some lithology data also. I would really like to avoid having to input all of the information again when I transfer data from one Project to another. Edward
  14. Hi Anu, If your data is not associated with boreholes then your best option may be entering your data into the Utilities Datasheet. This would work great if each of these parameters have been determined for each sample and sample location. With that you could use the EZ Map to plot your data with different colors, symbols and sizes depending upon you data. Hope this helps. Edward
  15. Hi Mira, Maybe you could check the density setting of your lithology patterns. Just a thought. Edward
