Features > RockWorks Advanced 

RockWorks Advanced

RockWorks Advanced contains all of the tools in the RockWorks program, from the EarthApps through the batch/scripting tools and support of SQL Server databases. 

 Each RockWorks feature level contains all of the lower levels.


Features of RockWorks17 Advanced

3D Faulting:  Create a "3D Fault File" in the Utilities, then activate this in your surface modeling, stratigraphy modeling, and/or solid (block) modeling settings to isolate the modeling within faulted regions. It "tricks" the algorithms into thinking that points on the other side of a fault (relative to the node currently being estimated) are much farther away (10x) than they really are.

Define single faults or multiple, each with two or more X, Y, Z, dip-direction, dip-angle measurements.

Import Commercial Land Grids: RockWorks comes with a free "LandBase" of US Range-Township-Section locations, gleaned from a variety of public sources.  This is available for all levels of the program.

If you've purchased a detailed land grid from a commercial source, you can import that data into the LandBase for use in your projects using RockWorks Advanced. RockWorks reads data from IHS (Petroleum Information / Dwights), TMC (Topographic Mapping Company), Tobin / GII/ASCII-31, Tobin / TDRBM II, and White Star.

RockWorks Scripting: Quickly create menu settings lists and combine them into scripts to run RockWorks in batch mode or from another program.  If you use RockWorks to create multiple diagrams from your project data, these "RCL" scripts are a life-saver!  Especially if new data becomes available, just plug that in, start your script, and go have lunch - when you return, your maps, models, sections, fences, etc. will be waiting for you.


MS-SQL Server Database Support:  The default RockWorks database is an SQLite SDB database. With RockWorks Advanced, you can also set up a connection to an MS-SQL

Oil and Gas Production Data: A new Production table has been added to the RockWorks17 database for storing well production data by date and for generating a variety of graphs:


Features of RockWorks17 Basic and Standard (all included in Advanced)

Borehole Modeling (RockWorks Standard): This is a collection of programs for reading subsurface data from a borehole database and creating surface and block models: lithology, stratigraphy, plumes, geotechnical, geophysical, fracture, water level, color and vector data.  Display models as 3D isosurfaces or blocks, or as sections, profiles, fence panels, and plan maps.  Include your log diagrams, append images, and manipulate layers easily.


Logs and Sections (RockWorks Basic): These programs read subsurface data from the borehole database and generate well location and other point maps, 2D and 3D logs, cross sections, and log maps.  Also compute borehole survey coordinates, and interactively pick stratigraphic and lithologic contacts. Use the "quick-section" options for basic interpolation panels in your sections, or draw your own correlations with "smart-snap" tools.


Utilities (RockWorks Basic): Use this suite of programs to read a variety of data types from the row-and-column datasheet and create point maps, contour maps, 3D surfaces, land grid (Public Land Survey) maps; interpolate 3D block models; compute volumes; generate hydrochemistry (Piper, Stiff, Durov), structural (rose, stereo), statistical (ternary, histogram, scatter) diagrams; convert coordinates; process images; and much more. This is an indispensable toolbox for geologists!


RockWare GIS Link: This handy toolbar for ArcGIS for Desktop is included with RockWorks Advanced.  It installs as a separate program, but once RockWorks is licensed, no separate licensing steps are required for the GIS Link.

EarthApps (RockWorks Basic):  This is a collection of programs that reads spatial data from the RockWorks datasheet and creates maps, images, and flyovers for display in Google Earth.  Display points with icons, circles, cones, and cylinders.  Create strike and dip maps with 2D symbols or 3D oriented disks. Display lines, polylines, and polygons in Google Earth, as well as draped, stacked, and vertical images. Create simple to elaborate flyovers.
