  2. Hi all I am having trouble with creating PDF's of high quality. I have already tried 2 different options, but I don't seem to get closer to a desired outcome. Basically I need to create a pdf of a projected alongside a location map. The first problem is that I need a different lay-out for my probings and my bores. I can get this far and append the probings and the bores to one projected section without much problem. What doesn't work out is that I need to create a location map seperate from the projected section as I want both probings and bores on my location map. Ideally, I want the location map in the same pdf as my projected section. What I have tried so far is the following: Rockplot/2D export to PDF with different settings such as pixels per inch, size, dynamic vs Fixed Sizing. I always have to make a trade off between the high pixels per inch for high quality or low pixels per inch because thin lines like the surface are barely visible in an exported pdf when I put in high pixels per inch. Reportworks: I have not explored this thorough, but the quality of the first image I created was rather poor. I couldn't read the labels of bore and probings for example. Are there any guidelines for finding the right settings? I also have one other sidequestion left: Is it possible to show the distance on the line of the location map like it is shown on the projected section? Anyway, much appreciated if someone could look into this. Kind regards Vincent

  4. OK! I was clicking through on the Maps/Bore hole map with poor results yesterday, but today it works just fine. Also yesterday the second choice in that menuu for "optional fields" would not open at all - some error message about first database field = -1 or similar, and it is opening and working fine now also. Maybe all it needed was to have a good reboot or have a night to settle in.
  5. Hi David, Are you clicking the QuickMap tab, which is next to the Borehole Data tab and gives a quick view of the borehole locations and project extents, or are you selecting the Maps | Borehole Map option from the upper menu ribbon? The latter should display a dialog with all of the map and contouring settings. Molly M RockWare Inc
  6. Just downloaded, installed 2020. Looking around I tried the borehole location map and wanted to check that I had brought over the proper files for making the topo. When I click borehole location map it does not bring up the screen where I would be able to select to add traces, contours, change symbol size and text size, etc. It jumps straight to making a map with no options offered. Where did that go?

  11. I'd look at your cutoff distance, half the cell size should work but if the cell size varies in the x, y and z spacing then it will be more hit or miss. Mitch
  12. Hi Molly Thank you so much. This is exactly what I was looking for. I have, however, 1 question. Filtering my boreholes on arsenic, I get 40 non-zero values across 11 different boreholes. When I create the statistics report, the population (Non-null) is equal to 80. This is the exact double. Is this as intended? I calculated the mean myself and this corresponds to the mean in the statistics report. Kind regards Vincent
  13. Hi Vincent, You can get a statistics report for the raw data using the I-Data | Statistics program. On the right side of the window, turn on "Spatial (XYZ) Filtering", specifically an Upper Surface and Lower Surface. Click the Adjust Filtering Options button to browse for those surfaces. Molly Mayfield RockWare Inc.
  14. Now that I think of it, this sounds very obvious. Thank you very much, this is very helpfull.
  15. Somebody else may suggest a way to do this without modeling but if you use the Closest Point method with a small distance cutoff there will be no manipulation of the values. Just the original values and nulls.
  16. Hi Mitch Thank you for your response. I will definitely look at this. However, it may seem a little weird, but it is not preferable to model the arsenic for my project. Do you think it's possible to get the statistics from the raw input, so without modelling the arsenic? Kind regards Vincent
  17. If you model the arsenic you'll have several choices for extracting the level data. First you can create an I-Data Plan map for the elevation of your choice which creates a grid of the values. You can the use the Grid Statistics program on the grid. Secondly you can use your stratigraphic layers to filter the arsenic model and then run Solid Statistics on the filtered model. Mitch
  18. Hi all I am looking for a way to extract geochemical data from a specific layer. For example, I have put all the arsenic levels into the I-data tab of Rockworks (17) and I have a stratigraphy model. Is it possible to know all the statistics (mean, st.d., etc.) of arsenic in a layer of my choosing? I have not modelled the geochemical data, is this necessary? Kind regards Vincent Verswijvel
  19. Hello TomB, Thank you so much for your help! You literally saved me. I'll try to do this just like you described. Thanks again, James.
  20. JamesH, Regarding your lithology map question: Create lithology map from a lithology model RwMod file and a gridded surface RwGrd file with the Borehole Manager Lithology | Surface Map menu. If you have truncated the Lithology model with the ground surface (superface filter), and you are using the same ground surface for the Lithology Surface Map, you may need to subtract the value of the model Z spacing. The ground surface and lithology model do not overlay exactly due to the size of the lithology model voxels. If you imagine placing a board on a flight of stairs, you will notice that the board only contacts the edge of the stair steps. To subtract a value from the grid used for the Lithology surface, use the Utilities Grid | Math | Grid & Constant menu. Topography contours are not created using this method. You can append topography contours created in another map such as the Borehole Manager Map | Borehole Locations map or the Utilities Map | Grid-Based Map. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc .
  21. JamesH, I suggest using the Striplogs | 2D | Section and Striplogs | 3D | Multiple Logs to look at your Stratigraphy data. Only a few of your boreholes have the Proterozoic unit, and they are at a higher elevation relative to the base Paleozoic in the boreholes on the east side of the project. If you make grids of this unit, RockWorks does not have the control points for this unit in the wells where it is missing, so it uses the existing data to project the unit at a high elevation. Add Proterozoic tops to boreholes to control the surface. . Some boreholes have missing tops for the Paleozoic where it has been pinched out by the Proterozoic. Add zero-thickness tops for the Paleozoic in these boreholes to control the surfaces. Use the Striplogs | Pick Stratigraphic Contacts menu to add tops on a cross-section and save them to the Borehole Manager Stratigraphy table. Another option is to create a Stratigraphy model with the Triangulation gridding method, and choose the option for No Interpolation of Un-Triangulatable Nodes. This method will truncate the surface outside the area where there is data. There are boreholes that need additional tops to prevent the surfaces from crossing with this method, but it is not as bad as with the other interpolation methods that extend to the edge of the project limits. . I will address your lithology question in a separate message. Regards, Tom B RockWare Inc
  22. Hi TomB, I tired the onlap function many times. On the 1st picture is onlap turned on and 2nd is onlap off. It only removes paleozoic under proterozoic but still leaves proterozoic in the middle of cretaceous. I've tried to downloaad the trial version of Rockworks 17 but for some reason the converting from 16 to 17 maded errors and even after fixing it the files are not suitable I guess because when I want to create model or something else everything is so small and unreadable and the model is not even showing. So I shloud try to create new unreal boreholes to fix it? I've also tried adding 0 thickness of proterozoic under paleozoic and 0 thickness to paleozoic where is proterozoic right under the cretaceous but it still did not help. I guess I'll try share my project here since I am pretty new in rockworks and after few months of using it it's still pretty difficult for me. The backup file is pretty small so it should be no problem. Only the stratigraphy and litology datasheets are in czech language so I hope I won't be a big problem or you can use google translator If needed. Here are the most common rocks: cretaceous slínovec = marlstone; pískovec = sandstone, písek = sand; slepenec = conglomerate; jíl = clay, jílovec = claystone and some older proterozoic slates = břidlice. Rockworks stratigrafie001.zip
  23. Hey thanks for the tip. I've checked the litology datasheet in all boreholes and triple checked stratigraphy datasheet and it looks fine so my guess is problem is somewhere else. I've also checked again the values in datasheet and lowered the value of "unknown age" so proterozoic would be last but I don't use boreholes with these since they are not needed for the model.
  24. Hi James, RockWorks 16 and 17 both have the option to allow underlying units take precedence when grids intersect when creating a Stratigraphy model. In RockWorks 16, this option is called Onlap and is set from the Stratigraphy model menu under the Interpolate Surfaces item. RockWorks 17 adds the ability to allow overlying units take precedence in the Modeling Sequence tab in the Interpolate Surfaces Options. In either case, the automatic Stratigraphy modeling may not produce the model you wish, especially if control is sparse for the lower units. In that case, you can build your model manually using additional control points created from the thicknesses of each unit in the Utilities datasheet, and Utilities Grid | Math to subtract the thickness from the top unit to get the top of the underlying unit. You are welcome to create a backup of the project with the Borehole Manager File | Backup Database menu command and send the ZIP file to [email protected] Include your RwGrd files in the ZIP file. Larger files may be uploaded to rockware.com/upload or you may send a link to your DropBox, Google Drive, or other shared folder. Regards, Tom B
  25. Control points are the known depths of the formation top and bottom. You get these from borehole data, ideally although you could create an imaginary well from a good cross section. With one or more imaginary wells well you can “define” the depth of the Proterozoic at different locations on your grid. Also it looks like there is a gap between the Cretaceous and the Proterozoic in your block model that you may need to look at. Best Regards.
  26. Hi, thanks for the answer. The numbers in the stratigraphy table should be good cretaceous is lowest, paleozoic is middle and proterozoic has the highest value. I don't fully understand the grid thing. What do you mean by control points?
  27. Hi JamesH. I used RW16 in the past and use RW17 now. There is not much difference between versions so I think that maybe these suggestions could be useful. Regarding the Proterozoic cutting through the Paleozoic that could be related to the grid you are using for the Proterozoic so one option would be to make more control points to tweak your grid. Also check the number next to your units. RW interprets lower numbers as overlying units. However you may be OK there because your legend is OK. As for the map try making the maps that you need separately and then doing an append. Another suggestion is to try different gridding algorithms. I generally get satisfactory results using Inverse Distance (Kriging doesn’t work well for me in RW). Another neat trick that you can try is gridding the data in SURFER or ARCGIS if you have them and importing the data to RW using Utilities. Best of luck to you!
  28. Hello guys, I am a geology student and I'm working on my bachelor thesis. I need to make few models and a map in rockworks but unfortunately I have a problems which I can not solve on my own and I can't find anybody capable of helping me. The thing is I am modeling a part of a structure and it's subsoil in the Czech Republic. The main problem in the model is (you can see it on the picture bellow) stratigraphy. For some reason the proterozoic era goes through cretaceous and whole paleozoic is also messed up... The stratigraphy is in czech langue so I will translate for you: kvartér = quaternary křída = cretaceous paleozoikum = paleozoic proterozoikum = proterozoic 2nd problem is with 2d map. I need to create a 2d map with topography and litology but I can't manage to create it. I don't know If I am doing it right, but there are no topography lines and only few litilogy. 3rd picture bellow. My guess is it only takes a certain level of topography. I hope someone can help me here so I can peacefuly finish my thesis. Thank you.
