A new version of RockWorks17 was uploaded to the RockWare website today, with the following new features, improvements, and bug fixes.


New Features:

  • T-Data can now be displayed within the EZ-Section correlations.
  • It is now possible to save the scene dimensions within RockPlot3D thereby allowing for the viewing of scene subsets.
  • The Drape and Rectify programs can now drape an image over a selected portion of a grid.  Note: The selected rectangle must be within the grid.
  • Uniform and Circular symbols within the symbol maps may now be color-coded based on a cold (purple) to hot (red) color scheme.
  • Lots of changes to the Stratigraphy Picker and Lithology Picker programs:
    + These programs now include a horizontal strip at the top of the cross-section that shows the borehole titles.  This new feature solves a problem of scrolling down the logs and losing track of which logs are being displayed.  It also eliminates the need to include the log titles within the Striplog Designer and the large offsets that can occur between the log titles and the log body when using vertical exaggerations.
    + They are now non-modal, meaning that the user may now access the main RockWorks dialog while these programs are running.
    + The three main work panels within the Stratigraphy Picker and the Lithology Picker are now “dockable”, meaning that they can be detached from the main form by dragging the stippled pattern within their title bars.  As a consequence, they can me moved to other screens, resized, etc.  When these sub-forms are dragged over the main form, small icons will appear to assist with the repositioning of the sub-forms within the main form.
    + Clicking on the docked panel within the new Stratigraphy and Lithology picker programs will now undock the panel.
    + Clicking on the Close button within floating panel will now reset the layout.
    + A Reset button has been added to the Picker programs to restore the original startup layout.
    + The Zoom, Vertical Exaggeration, and Decimal Place options within the Picker programs now include spin buttons.
    + The Zoom, Vertical Exaggeration, and Decimal Place options within the Picker programs are now saved between sessions.
    + The New button within the Stratigraphy and Lithology picker programs no longer returns the user to the main menu.  Instead, the user may now select different boreholes and change other options and resume the process without restarting the process from the main menu.


  • Importing a Multi-Table text file into the Borehole Database no longer defaults to Local Meters if the units aren’t specified within the text file.  Instead, the program now defaults to the current project units if the units aren’t specified within the text file.
  • The Visible Menus options within the basic license now include the Borehole Manager Map and Strip Log menus.
  • The EZ-Section correlation panels now all use the same min/max values when computing the color scheme.
  • The new Color Legend option now works with I-Data, P-Data, and T-Data EZ-Section correlations.

Bug Fixes:

  • The Image Rectify, Image to Map, and other programs that save a raster image to a RockPlot2D diagram now set the corner point coordinates correctly.
  • The Convert Solid to Grid algorithm now calculates the most frequently occuring points correctly.
  • The Solid to GWV (GroundWater Vistas) Zone Matrix output has been fixed.
  • The I-Data Fill options within the 2D Log Designer are now correctly saved.
  • The P-Data Fill options within the 2D Log Designer are now correctly saved.
  • The Utilities | Map | 3D Points program no longer generates a "Could not convert variant ..." error.
  • The Utilities | Hydrology | Flowlines program no longer generates a "Could not convert variant ..." error.
  • Draped images now show the correct colors within RockPlot3D.
  • The State Plane Index map now properly lists Florida zone 903.
  • The Delete View option within RockPlot3D is now visible.
  • Images are now plotted in the correct location when draping a RockPlot3D drawing with Peripheral Images.
  • Creating line or color contours with a faulted grid that contains null values will no longer cause the program to lock-up (infinite loop) when the null nodes correspond with the fault zone.
