  1. Josh, This is a common issue when you have some kind of filter on that you may not be aware of. There is some setting that is hiding or removing your data. It could be a coordinate system mismatch too. Check all your system settings and filters and see if you can find it. if not send your data file and the menu settings for the program to [email protected] You can save the menu settings as an .rcl file by clicking on the upper left hammer and wrench icon and save the rcl.
  2. Striplog design

    Aditya, You can try setting the "Vertical Text Position" to center of interval. If that still doesn't work you may need to manually add the text descriptions. Once you make them the size you want you can copy and paste them around which makes it pretty easy. You can even copy and paste between RP2D files. Here's an example I made where I made tags, then copied them to the other boreholes. I drew in leader lines for the thin ones.
  3. patterns fail to display in 2d Stratigraphy legend

    Mira, In any RockPlot2D window, you can add in a legend by going to the top menu in RP2D Draw | Insert and then choose a legend type. Once you pick one you want you can draw it anywhere in the window. You can delete the current one you have by selecting it and hitting the delete key. The color legend is a specific type that is not linked to the lithology or stratigraphy tables. Cheers, Brian
  4. Advisable maximum number of drill holes in project

    1000 boreholes is not really a large amount of boreholes. I've been working with a database of over 7800 boreholes, many of which I'm not using at the same time. It really depends on how many you are using at once that will bog things down. A nice way of utilizing boreholes efficiently is by creating optional fields in the Location table of the borehole manager. Using the Filter as Tom pointed out will allow you to filter by these optional fields. So for example, if you have some wells that are bad quality that you may not use but you still want to include this data in the database, create an optional field called "Quality" and assign a value to each well, maybe "Good" or "Bad". You can then filter the boreholes that have "Good" in that field and in turn the ones with "Bad" will be de-selected. Alternatively, if you have some smaller sets of holes, you can make a field that you simply put an "x" as the value. Say, you have wells that were drilled by a certain drilling company. You create a field called "Drilling_Co_X" and put an "x" as the value. Now you can filter out all of the boreholes that have an "x" in this field. Or maybe some of your wells have a different source of data, maybe geophysics or geologic log. You can set up more optional fields for these. There is virtually no limit to the number of optional fields you can have. Utilizing optional fields can make selecting your data very quick for performing certain tasks, so I highly recommend this trick for data management of larger data sets. -Brian
  5. Mira, Thanks for your question. The only thing that comes to mind immediately is whether or not you have the aquifer names in the aquifer types table. If they aren't in the types table, then RockWorks can't make the association it needs to in the database. Here is the aquifer types table for the Samples project. Brian
  6. I'll bring this up at the next development meeting and see if we can work on a solution for this. Maybe it will appear in a future update. Thanks! Brian
  7. Edward, One thing you could probably try is change the X and Y of the holes with the same location to something slightly different, say 0.1 off. Then you can zoom in to select the one you want. Alternatively, you can make separate striplogs and append them in ReportWorks, but this may be a bit more time consuming to do. Hope this helps! Brian
  8. David, Thanks for your question. You might have better luck seeing the deviated wells using the 2D Striplog Profile program. This one will better display your vertical inclined or deviated boreholes. The Section tool will not display any deviated information. Below is an example from a modified version of the Sample project of making a section from a location with two deviated wells to a location with a vertical well, and a profile with the same track.
  9. AqQA Stiff

    Unfortunately, AqQA does not have this feature. However, RockWorks software can plot custom ions in stiff plots and also plot the diagrams on a map. See this page for details: https://www.rockware.com/product/featuresLobby.php?id=165&category=367
  10. Modeling NAPLs

    Megan, As it turns out your product thickness was too small to show up with the z-spacing you were using. You need to decrease your model z-spacing to correspond to the minimum thickness you want to show. Because it's so small and you are limited to 2500 nodes in Z space, you will need to repeat the process described in the case study over several horizons in the model. So make your first model from Top elevation to 1m below, then make the next one a meter of thickness below that, etc. Once you do this, you can append the results together to reconstruct the entire product blob.

  11. Raechel, This seems to be an error we need to fix. I have reproduced the error of the resizing output. We'll try and get that fixed soon. We'll continue to look into the issue with the X images on the Google Earth output. Since we can't duplicate the issue, send us your project, project settings and data to [email protected] and we'll see if we can duplicate the issue. Brian
  12. Raechel, I'm hoping that the problem is just that you have the older version of the software. I can't duplicate this problem on my machine. Please try downloading the latest version of the software and let me know if this solves the problem. If the problem persists, we'll look into the issue further. https://www.rockware.com/product/productDemo.php?id=165 Brian
  13. Andy, You could send us your files and we can have a look. That's going to be the easiest way to see what's going on. Send them to [email protected] Thanks, Brian
  14. Andy, I would recommend Using these options shown in the attached image. These settings gave me my Grand Canyon result which you can see in the other image.
  15. Vector file export format

    Thanks for your question. This is correct. RockWorks does not support these types of output, but we will put that on our wishlist for our developers.
  16. As you may know, RockWorks does not currently support the NAD27 State Plane coordinate system as an option. If your project data is in NAD27 State Plane coordinates, you can now use the RockWorks Online Conversion tool to transform your data to a different datum. You can upload your data, or copy and paste it into one the online conversion tools found here: https://www.rockware.com/freesoftware/ Once output to the datum of your choice (We would recommend UTM WGS84/NAD83 feet or meters) you can use your data in RockWorks. This online utility can also convert NAD27 Latitude / Longitude to NAD83/WGS84 Latitude / Longitude and vice versa. If you have any questions about how to use the Online Conversion tools, this is a good place to come to ask questions or make suggestions.
  17. Extract elevation from google earth

    On a side note, you can now extract elevations through the RockWare free online converter app: www.rockware.com/freesoftware Click on the "build-your-own" menu item then check the box on the left that says "Enable Manual Data Collection". You'll get latitude, longitude and elevation. The elevation has varying precision depending on the google database for that area.
  18. Using the Earth Tools Utility of Rockworks

    Edward, I'm not sure about why your coordinates are not showing up in the right place but I have a theory. The first thing I noticed is that your northing is really large (you probably just have an extra zero). I also notice that if you take a zero off of your easting value, you actually get your point on land if you use zone 17 instead of zone 16. When I use an online utility to plot the points, like this one, https://www.rockware.com/freesoftware/ or this one, http://www.rcn.montana.edu/resources/converter.aspx both of the utm coordinates you supplied are in the ocean (when I take off the extra zero on the northing). Zone 16 is in the Pacific, Zone 17 is in the Atlantic with your adjusted coordinates. Is this where Google Earth is plotting the points? It sounds to me that you need to check the coordinate values for your points and that were properly converted or are in the correct zone. From the research I've done, it looks like the problem arises in the Costa Rica TM 2005 datum. According to this: http://georepository.com/projection_5366/Costa-Rica-TM-2005.html the 'natural origin' is -84 degrees longitude with a false easting of 500,000. This is very similar to WGS84 UTM, but the difference seems to be the origin. A UTM zone is 6 degrees wide and this is true for the Costa Rica TM 2005 datum. The WGS84 standard zone goes from -90 to -84 with the center at -87 (the 'natural origin') http://spatialreference.org/ref/epsg/wgs-84-utm-zone-16n/ whereas the Costa Rica zone centers on -84 and goes from -87 to -81 which covers the whole country. This 'natural origin' was adjusted likely so that the zone 16 and zone 17 of the WGS84 grid would not result in zone errors. I would say that your Easting needs to be offset to get you in the correct position by what it appears to be 3 degrees of longitude. I hope that helps.
  19. Extract elevation from google earth

    Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, Google Earth doesn't return an elevation value so it defaults to zero. You're not doing anything wrong, it's a limitation of Google Earth.
