  1. Importing excel

    Hi Archana, I cannot duplicate the problem with our files. You are welcome to send your files and a description of the procedure that you perform to [email protected], and I will follow your description to reproduce the problem. Include the LDFX, DAT, and Excel files. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  2. LNAPL and Aquifer surfaces

    Hi Kahn, It looks like you are modeling the LNAPL surface floating on top of the groundwater surface. In areas where the LNAPL is absent, RockWorks searches the entire project area for data. To restrict the LNAPL surface to the area that has data, model it separately and specify a Max Distance filter in the Additional Options section of the Gridding Options menu. Another option is to use Polygon Clipping to clip the RwGrd file to the inside of a polygon. Create a Polygon Table with the XY coordinates of the polygon boundary, then choose the Utilities Grid | Filters | Polygon Clip menu to clip the LNAPL grid. You could also try a different modeling algorithm, such as Triangulation, that restricts the surface to the convex hull surrounding the data. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  3. Programming suggestion for striplogs

    Hi David, Copying orientation data to the zero depth is useful for your data, but this procedure may introduce errors for other sources of orientation data. I will add your request for this option to the suggestion file. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  4. Hi Kahn, Use the Aquifers | Model menu command in the Borehole Manager to plot the aquifers as surfaces. Save the RockPlot3D .Rw3D file, then append the Lithology fence diagram. You may want to turn off the sides and bases of each aquifer to make the diagram less cluttered. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  5. With the September 2019 update to RockWorks 17 and LogPlot 8, the Network versions now require version 1.09 or higher of the RockWare License Manager. If you get this error, contact [email protected] to get the download link for the current version. The graphic below applies to RockWorks17, but the error occurs with both LogPlot8 and RockWorks17. Warning! Could not obtain network license from server for RockWorks17. Message The License server must be at least version 1.09, current version is 1.0x If you have any questions, contact [email protected] Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc

  7. Striplogs in profiles...multiple bar charts

    Hi David, I-Data values for different data types do not have to have the same "from-to" depths. They can cover any interval. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  8. Importing DEM

    Hi Katherine, Using UTM or State Plane is better than decimal degrees for vertical plot scaling, distance, area, and volume calculation. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  9. Importing DEM

    Hi Kat, Thanks for sending the files. DEM.txt has the format: ELEV_M <tab> LONG <tab> LAT Import this file into the RockWorks Utilities datasheet. Right-click on the gray column headers to define DEPTH as Z meters and LONG and LAT as X or Y Decimal Degrees. Convert the Lat/Long to your project coordinate system, e.g. UTM Zone 13 m. Scan the datasheet to change the project dimensions if needed. Use the Map | Grid-Based Map menu to make a RockWorks RwGrd file and 2D and 3D maps. PA_069418005_POINTGRID_ZOOM.txt has the format: OBJECTID <tab> pointid <tab> grid_code <tab> ELEV_FT <tab> ELEV_M <tab> LONG <tab> LAT Follow the instructions above to get a RockWorks RwGrd file. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  10. Importing DEM

    Hi Kahn, It sounds like your DEM is not in the specified DEM format. You are welcome to send your file to [email protected] and we'll take a look to see if we can identify the format and recommend a conversion procedure. Include the Input Format that you select, and any information you have about your file. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  11. Citing RockWorks

    Hi Ehsan, Usually the journal where the paper is published has a style guide, but here is an example from the web page "How to Cite Software APA Style" and the nova.edu page "How to Cite Sources: APA Style". Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc. RockWorks17 (Revision 2019.7.30) [Software]. 2019. Golden CO USA: RockWare, Inc. Available from https://www.rockware.com/product/rockworks/ RockWorks17 (Revision 2019.7.30) [Software Help Files]. 2019.

  12. Horizontal scaling of 2D StripLog section

    Hi Jan, To prevent the logs from overlapping, decrease the width of the columns in the 2D Striplog Designer Column Layout for each item or change the Borehole Spacing to Uniform (Constant) Distance. Regards, Tom B
  13. Ternary Diagrams

    Hi Alison, It looks like your cell size is pretty big, resulting in a low resolution grid of about 10 cells in each direction. I used a cell spacing of 10, resulting in 101 cells in the X direction and 87 cells in the Y direction. . Compare contour maps with different grid cell spacing / size / number. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  14. Ternary Diagrams

    Hi Allison, To contour the Plasticity values in your ternary diagram, Digitize the points XY locations on the diagram and copy to the Utilities datasheet. Create a grid and contour map. Draw a polygon that matches the triangle axes on the ternary plot. Click on it to select it, then right-click and Save to Polygon Table. In Utilities, choose the Grid | Filters | Polygon Clip menu command and replace the values outside the triangle with NULL values. Overlay the ternary plot axes and points as needed. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  15. USGS Lithology Symbols as pattern file?

    Hi acuesta1395, We do not know of any LogPlot pattern files that incorporate the USGS patterns and symbols, but your can create your own patterns with the pattern editor. You can add a background image of the pattern and trace it with the drawing tools in the pattern editor. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
