  1. Interpolating data (RW17)

    Hi Vincent, Use the Borehole Manager File | Transfer | Stratigraphy to Utilities Datasheet menu to transfer Stratigraphy elevations to the Utilities Datasheet. Add 0's to the missing Stratigraphy columns that you want to calculate. Choose the Utilities Grid | Statistics | Residuals menu to calculate the values for the desired Stratigraphy. Copy the Predicted values to the Stratigraphy unit column. Choose the Utilities File | Transfer | Stratigraphy to Borehole Manager menu to copy the values back to the Borehole Manager database. If the base of the overlying unit is equal to the top of the underlying unit, you can copy the elevation or depth value to that cell corresponding to the base of that unit.

  2. Stratigraphy Grid Files, offset grids

    Hi Craig SS, The "offset" grids are created when you "Explode" the Stratigraphy model display in 3D. The "Expode" option offsets the grids vertically. Regards, Tom B
  3. Different types of drillings in projected section

    Hi Vincent, Use the Location Table | Optional Fields button to add a field to classify your wells. After you add the well types, you can turn on and off the different types of wells for cross-sections and modeling with the View | Filter Boreholes menu. Regards, Tom B RockWorks Inc
  4. Striplog and hydrogeologic modeling

    Hi Mirabel, RockWorks needs the following data in the Location table: unique Borehole Name, Easting, Northing, Elevation, and Total Depth. In the Lithology table, enter the Borehole Name, Depth1, Depth2, and Lithology unit. In the Lithology Types Table, enter the Lithology unit name, a unique numeric value for each unit, and the foreground pattern and background color. Specify unique background colors for 3D plotting. Here's a link to a video playlist that shows the videos in order. It shows how to mport data from Excel, and create striplogs. You could also type in the data manually in Borehole Manager.

  5. Constraining stratigraphy model by surface RW17

    Hi Vincent, To make a larger grid without smoothing, export the existing RwGrd to an XYZ file, then regrid with the new grid dimensions. Use the Closest Point gridding method and set the Max Distance to the grid node spacing. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  6. Constraining stratigraphy model by surface RW17

    Hi Vincent, When creating a Stratigraphy model in RockWorks 17, enable the Constraining Surface option and specify the ground surface RwGrd file. Both grids must have the same min max XY and same XY spacing. Specify the Truncation Type as Truncate Units Above Ground Surface. This option will truncate all units in the model. Turn off the option to Replace Top Surface with Ground Surface. Another method is to use the Utilities Grid | Filter | Limit menu to truncate one surface with the ground surface. I cannot tell what the vertical lines are in your graphic. You are welcome to send your Rw2D file with the section or profile to [email protected] It may also be helpful to see your menu settings, please include a backup of your project created with the Borehole Manager File | Backup Database menu command. Larger files may be uploaded to https://rockware.com/upload/ Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  7. Logplot feature request

    Hi haga2000, Great idea to name and number the LogView tabs. I'll add your request to the suggestion file. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  8. compiling multiple logs next to each other

    Hi haga2000, LogPlot is not designed to show multiple logs on the same page. I recommend the RockWorks software for this task. RockWorks can create cross-sections, and profiles from multiple logs. It can import LogPlot data files. Download a free trial version of RockWorks to test these features with your data. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  9. Setting a custom projection

    Hi Edward, Use the latest version of RockWorks to get this feature. Old versions did not have this feature. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  10. Strip Log I Data text Display

    Hi Craig, Both I-Data #1 and I-Data #2 are both set to Brightness under the Track option. Change one to Density to resolve the problem. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  11. Guidelines

    Hi Tiago, RockWorks can read LogPlot data files directly. RockWorks prompts for the target location of data that it does not recognize. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  12. Fracture colors

    I'm glad you found a solution. Thanks for letting me know. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  13. Fracture colors

    In RockWorks 17, change the color of the fracture disks in the Fractures table, by double-clicking on the cell in the Color column or click on the button with the 3 dots [...] to display the Color picker. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  14. Change decimal separator

    Hi Tiago, LogPlot 7 does not change the character assigned to the period or point "." on the numeric keypad. You may be able to change the period to a comma with the Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=22339 Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  15. Borehole Location and Data in Section Map

    Hi Dicranurs, To plot a borehole location map in the Borehole Manager tab, choose the Map | Borehole Locations menu. To transfer borehole data to the utilities data sheet, click on the Borehole Manager tab and choose the File | Transfer | Locations -> Utilities Datasheet menu. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
