Programming suggestion for striplogs

David Young

Recommended Posts

I suggest that in the processing of orientation data, if there is no value at 0 depth, but there IS survey data starting deeper, that the default be to assign the next present azi and inclination to the interval starting at 0 depth.  However, if there is NO orientation data at all, then keep the default case to be the assumption that the hole is vertical, as is now done.


As often as not, when I am given orientation data, for drill holes in which there are data, the orientation was not entered for the 0 depth.  It must be that Minesight and other commonly used programs do what I am suggesting.  I typically only spot this after I start making sections and see the dogleg drillhole traces.

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.
