New Features in RockWorks15


New Data Tools

  • Support of MS SQL Server and other databases.  
  • Lithology Picker: Pick your lithology intervals from raster or geophysical logs in an interactive window.

  • I-Text and P-Text: Enter non-numeric data - sample numbers, comments, etc. - and display on your logs.
  • Shapefile Import: Import Shapefiles and attributes into the Utilities datasheet.
RockWorks striplogs  

  • Shapefile export:  Export log data (lithology, stratigraphy, I-Data, T-Data, P-Data, fractures, water levels, well construction) to 3D Shapefiles, with attributes.  Display and analyze in ArcScene.

New Color Modeling Tools

  • Borehole Colors: Interpolate a solid color model from borehole color intervals.
  • Color Import: Import colors into boreholes using descriptive data (such as Munsell codes) or raster images.
  • Display Options: Display a color model as 3D voxels, 3D fence panels, 2D section or profile, or 2D plan map.
RockWorks Color Model  

  • Raster Images: Interpolate a color model from vertical image panels.
