RockWorks Utilities, ModOps, and Graphics Programs

The RockWorks Datasheet is used for entering miscellaneous data – simple XY data for creating Google Earth maps, XYZ data for generating point and contour maps, XYZG data for interpolating solid models, strike and dip data for stereonet plots, hydrochemistry ion lists for Piper diagrams, and much more.

The RockWorks Datasheet, and the ModOps, Utilities, and Graphics menus whose programs can read from the datasheet, are included in all feature levels of RockWorks (Basic, Standard, and Advanced).

ModOps Overview Video

Watch a quick introductory video on the RockWorks Datasheet and ModOps menu.


Read spatial data from the Datasheet Editor, and generate a variety of different maps – points, contours, polygons, 3D points, and more.
