  1. Hi, I am having a problem that didn´t occur previouosly. With Rockware 16, Level 5 I am copying data from the borehole survey screen to the utilities data sheet so that I can use the EasyMap tool to plot some points of interest. I know that I could do this point by point from within the borehole survey tool but my need is to plot various points so that is why I copy them into the Utilities datasheet to plot them using EasyMap, however the X and Y coordinates get all messed up (the z coordinates are alright). I have done scan datasheet and it shows the coordinates are way off. It seems as though maybe somewhere in the program the actual coordiinates in the table may be being multiplied by some factor or something. Can you help me with this?
  2. Hi, We are having a problema with Rockworks. One of my coworkers is unable to access the network license because she is getting a message saying that the license server is versión 1.01 and that it needs to be 1.03. Can you help us with this?
  3. Hi, When I start up Rockworks 16 Level 5 I get a message that there is a previously installed update of the program on my computer but when I try to install it, it says that the file is corrupt.
  4. Hi. I am trying to do a batch export of my borehole data to Excel. Previously I could do this with no problem but now an error message is showing up that says it appears that Excel is not installed on this computer. Wierd.
  5. Hi. I am getting a message on my computer that there is an upgrade for RW16 available but when I try to download it I get a message that the file is corrupt.
  6. Hi, I was wondering if an svg or vectorial pdf export file format is possible with Rockworks. Currently I do not see either one of these options. Edward
  7. Hi, I have noticed that when I export a RW2D file as a shp file that when I open it in SURFER all lines come out as black lines (color is lost), all points and text locations show up as little crosses. Also, all layering done in Rockworks is lost. How can these shortcomings be dealt with? Edward
  8. Sounds like it will work Jim. Thanks for your attention to this matter.
  9. I am getting this error: Acces violation at address 011FACAB in module ‘RockWorks16.exe’. Read of address 1891FFF8.
  10. Thanks Mitch, Is there a way to snap to points? For example if I have a strip log of P data plotted as points and I only want to join some of the points with a line (rather than all of them).
  11. HI Mitch, Smart Snap works flawlessly with stratigraphic columns and logs. You write that lines should snap to vertices in lines, rectangles, polylines and polygons. Is that done with the Shift-Click or Ctrl-Click option? I imagine that it should be the opposite for snapping to specific points along a line, rectangle, polyline or polygon. Also, It would be extremely convenient if the snapping feature were added to the "edit vertices" tool.
  12. Hi Jim, Thanks for your comments. Do you think that a program could be written such that it would be interactive and based on actual survey data or on a planned borehole path. The wells that we drill start out vertically down to the KOP (kick off point) depth and then we begin to construct angle up to a given maximum inclination which we hold on tangent to the end of the well. It seems that your suggestion would only work for a borehole with constant dip from the surface. Maybe this could be achieved if you include the following parameters in the Widget: KOP, BUR (build up rate), azimuth (instead of borehole direction) and maximum inclination (instead of borehole dip). I also think that the reference x, y, z coordinates do not necessarily need to be collar coordinates but rather any x, y, z coordinates along the borehole path so that on the fly calculations like "how much further do we need to drill to get to the fault plane?" can be made easily. Just out of curiosity, how would this be done from within the borehole manager, as you mentioned? Regarding Alison's comment I like the idea because in addition to visualizing the length of the borehole needed to intercept the fault plane it would allow you to click on the 3D model at the intersection to get the corresponding x, y, z coordinates, although approximate. However I think that Alison's suggestion is best suited for creating a model once the initial calculations have been, say from within a Widget. Is there a way to add thickness to the fault trace so that it is visualized as a slab rather than a plane? I ask because generally faults have a zone of influence that varies depending on the magnitud of the fault.
  13. Hi I have been exploring the Utilites module of Rockworks and the different calculators that it has in the Widgets and have not yet found out how to use rock works to do the following calculation. If I have a fault plane of known strike that I want to assign a dip and determine at what measured depth a well trajectory crosses the fault plane. A vertical well would be simple because I simply take the MD and TVD when I get to the fault trace bur as the dip increases I consequently increase or decrease the distance required to drill to get to the fault. This is similar to a true dip or apparent dip problem but I am not clear on how to do the operation. Basically what I need to get out of the program is the distance that the fault plane moves with depth at a constant dip and then take that distance and use it in the borehole survey report to determine the total measured depth required and the xyz coordinates where I can expect to intersect the fault. Any suggestions?
  14. I simply draw a polygon in RW2d and then when I right click I get the option to save the drawing to a polygon file. When I select that option is when I get the error. The problem is not saving the image that the polygons are drawn but rather saving the polygons themselves to polygon tables. I do not think that I am filling the polygons with patterns from the Stratigraphy, Lithology or Aquifer tables. However, when the error arises again I will send the bug report with a screenshot. Thanks
  15. Hi, I am trying to save some polygons drawn in RW2D to a profile and I get an error message that says "Dataset not in edit or insert mode". How do I fix this?
  16. Hi, Here in Costa Rica we are on a coordinate system called CRTM05 which uses the datum WGS84 (previously we were on the Costa Rica Lambert System with a datum in Ocotepeque, Clark 1964). For the CRTM05 system can define the easting and northing parameters easily enough in Rockworks but the geographical data is not displayed correctly in Google Earth. We are in zone 16N in the UTM system but I think that does´t have too much to do with the CRTM05 system because the numbers are not the same. An example of real coordinates in one of our field areas is 352000 E, 11820000 N. Other than the Easting and Northing correction is there anything else that I need to take into consideration so that I can get the images created in Rockworks to display correctly in Google Earth? Regards, Edward
  17. Hi TobB, Just thought that I would let you know that I have discovered a satisfactory way to export high resolution png images from Rockworks via the ReportWorks Utility. You get much better quality png images there than you do with the 2dRW Utility. Regards, Edward
  18. Hi Mitch, I am relatively new to Rockworks but I have used the Multiple Tables option successfully for similar operations. I think that during the import process maybe you could create new fields to allocate the column/location fields that you are importing. Regards, Edward
  19. Hi Mitch, Thanks for your comments. I found that I can easily reduce the size of the jpg file in Paint and then save it as a png which is much more manageable. I wasn't aware of the differences between jpg and png files before. Thanks again for your help.
  20. Hi Mitch, Thanks for your comment. Do you think that I might be able to overcome this problem by converting the jpg file to a png with the Rockworks raster converter tool (Utilities / Imagery / Raster Conversion) before I import it to RW2D?
  21. HI Mitch. Thanks. I just uploaded the image to via email so that you can try to see what is happening with it.
  22. Hi, I am importing a photo to Rockworks using the Import/Raster Image/ option and when I save the image it increases the size from 1Mb to 10 Mb. I experienced a similar problema when rectifying images previously and when I reported it, Rockworks kindly modified the file format the Rockworks produces from .RAW to .png and the like. Could it be posible that the same problema is being presented here? Oh, by the way, I think that It was Molly that helped me out the last time.
