RockWorks on ArcGIS Server?

Recommended Posts


We manage an ArcGIS server (AGS) installation for one of our clients.

The client has received from his consultant materials produced with RockWorks.

How can we integrate the RockWorks output into AGS?

Is there a way to transfer RockWorks materials into ArcGIS 3D Analyst?

I don't have much familiarity with ArcGIS Server but there are several options you can use for generating ArcGIS output.

1. RockWork's provides Shape exports from our 2D and 3D graphics programs with enough data to allow you to apply Symbology to your data. You can export surfaces, iso-surfaces, striplogs and other triangle based graphics from RockPlot3D which is available as a free download from our website.

2. RockWork's also generates Stratigraphy Fence panels in a 3D Shape format directly from within RockWorks.

3. RockWork's also exports grids (surfaces) in an ESRI ASCII format or as 3D Points in a Shape File. Solid Models can also be exported to a Shape file as 3D Points.

4. We're now testing our exports of Strip Log data (Stratigraphy, Lithology, Interval, Point and Time Data) as 3D Polyline an Point data. This should be available in our next update before the end of the month.

5. We also have developed the RockWoks GIS Link which adds a toolbar in ArcMap to directly generate 2D Layers using RockWorks.

6. The RockWork's default database is done in Access and contains XYZ coordinates which can be used to generate 2D and 3D Feature Classes. This is probably only an option if your comfortable working with Arc's COM objects using VB or .NET.

7. RockWork's can also export raster images and DXf which can be brought into ArcGIS.

If you can provide more specifics on what you'd like to do we can provide more help.


PS: We've also added some direct exports for MapInfo users who can also import the Shape, DXF and raster files.
