Borehole Elevations and modeling

Recommended Posts

How should I account for having two elevations for each monitoring well (ground surface, top of casing) when creating different models? Aquifer models use top of casing, lithologic sections use ground surface. Currently I use the top of casing elevations in creating a surface grid but that causes display issues when creating a lithologic section.

Hi Stephen,

The Collar Offset field is an optional field that is available for user filtering and labeling, but does not affect the Elevation field reference in the Location table.

A relatively easy way to handle the two elevation references is to have separate projects for the different types of data that reference a different elevation.

Another way is to add an optional field for the Top of Casing Elevation, use the Borehole Manager File | Transfer to send the Location table fields to the Utilities datasheet, swap the elevations, then use the Utilities File | Transfer to send the changed elevations back to the Borehole Manager database.

We hope to add this feature to the next major version of RockWorks later this year.
