RockWorks16 - New Features

 

Video: What's New in RockWorks16 (12:46)

Watch RockWare's July Webinar in which we go through many of the new features in RockWorks16.

 



New RockWorks EarthApps - Output spatial data to Google Earth
  • Point Maps: Display map locations with icons, circles, cones, cylinders, and strike and dip symbols.

New Coordinate Options
  • Define project units and coordinate system for new and updated project databases.

  • Map (XY) and depth (Z) units can be mixed (e.g. meters and feet).

  • Project dimensions now represent Output Dimensions, and units are defined. Area, volume and mass units are also defined.
RockWorks Borehole Manager - Coordinates  

  • Define units and coordinate system for spatial columns in the utilities datasheet.

  • Coordinate conversion options have been added to all import tools.
RockWorks Utilities - Datasheet coordinates  

  • Relabel coordinates for existing data/projects.

  • Reproject coordinates for existing data/projects.

  • Volume reports use project units

New Diagram Types and Improvements
  • New Stratigraphy Rules provide smarter cross sections and stratigraphy models.
RockWorks Borehole Manager - Stratigraphy Cross Section  

  • "EZ" P-Data, I-Data, Stratigraphy correlation panels in striplog sections. 
RockWorks Borehole Manager - Log Correlations  

  • Improvements to the Stratigraphy Picker and Lithology Picker programs

  • Polygon maps:  multiple polygons, claim maps

  • Claim area and lease area calculators
RockWorks Utilities - Polygon Maps  

  • Automatically plot Horizontal Reference Lines on Sections and Profiles.
Horizontal Reference Lines in cross-section.  

  • New option to plot symbols with curves or connecting lines based on P-Data.
New Symbol Options can be used to show geophysical data, geotechnical parameters, and more.  


Striplogs
  • New color-fill options for 2D Curves.  Fill in either the vertical or horizontal directions.

Modeling
  • Model Distance to Closest Intersection based on fracture data.

Borehole Manager Features
  • New layout of the Location tab – better organization.

  • Customized Location fields on their own "groups" or tabs for great flexibility,

 

RockWorks Borehole Manager location tabs  

  • Each database table can be referenced to the ground or collar elevations.

  • Improved hole sorting options so enabled can show at top and boreholes can be easily grouped.

  • Search for boreholes, hide disabled holes.

  • Lithology, Stratigraphy, Water Level, Well Construction descriptions and Comments are now "memos" with unlimited content. 

  • Easily re-order I-Data, T-Data, P-Data, I-Text, P-Text columns (and they'll be remembered). Hide them, too.
RockWorks Borehole Manager - Memo fields for descriptions  


EarthApps and Utilities Datasheet
  • Row checkboxes – unchecked items will not be processed. 

  • Filter rows based on Output Dimensions and Polygons.
RockWorks Utilities Datasheet  

  • New column types in the Utilities datasheet.

  • Specify coordinates and units.

RockPlot2D Updates
  • Expanded Google Earth export tools - export cross sections as vertical panels, maps as floating or draped, etc.

  • Diagram type saved in RockPlot2D files: unknown, map, section/profile, chart

  • Diagrams store coordinate system and units.
RockWorks RockPlot2D - export to Google Earth  

  • New tools in RockPlot2D to hand-draw correlation panels. Includes "snap" nodes in logs, snap to lines.

  • Add vertices to polygons and polylines
RockWorks - Drawing tools in RockPlot2D  

  • Establish a default font for 2D graphics; edit them individually in the plot window.

  • Apply transparency to color-filled or pattern-filled polygons.
RockWorks Cross Section  

  • Now include fills in vector patterns!

  • 2D color legends include scientific notation and prefixes & suffixes

RockPlot3D Updates
  • Expanded Google Earth export tools.

  • Color schemes for 3D diagrams can be defined before they are created.
RockWorks - 3D Fence exported to Google Earth  

  •  Add titles and logos to 3D scenes.
