Cross sections are an important tool in illustrating subsurface geology. Among the many new features added to Strater 5 are several new cross section options including water level display, retaining custom levels, and adding wells to an existing cross section. This blog will address how a new well can be added to a cross section. For this example, we will use the Cross Section.sdg sample file that ships with Strater.
The Strater 5 sample file “Cross Section.sdg” contains a cross section with four wells, well headers, two inset maps, a horizontal cross section, a depth log, and a legend. We will further manipulate this file by adding a new well and reshaping the default layers.
In the image above I’ve already applied some custom fills to the cross section and now I want to add another well. To do this, I’ll simply add a new well selector to the map view, used to create the cross section, and assign that well selector to the cross section:
Update the well selector line in the map view, or add a new well selector line, to update your cross section with a new set of wells.
The new well is added and default layers are drawn. Now I can reshape the layers and add a water level line to finalize the cross section.
Strater 5 allows for even more customization of cross sections, including the ability to add wells, keep custom layers, and draw water level symbols and levels.
The ability to add wells to cross sections is a powerful tool for geologists, making it easy to play around with which wells give the best display and update existing projects with new data. Add to that the other cross section improvements and new features, like water table symbols, and Strater becomes your one-stop-shop for professional and informative cross sections!

Golden Software is in a class all its own. Your software is outstanding, but what I really appreciate is when I have a problem, in a matter of minutes, I can get a friendly, live, competent technician on the phone. Who else offers that service in this day and age?
Golden Software support is the reason that I purchased your products. I occasionally have the need to contact the technical support group and have always found them to be very helpful. That level of support is unusual and I appreciate it greatly!
When I first heard of your software from my friend, it was described in near mythical terms. It wasn't until I started using it that the description revealed itself to be apt. The use of these products will no doubt increase the quality and clarity of my research results.
Thank you for this information!!!
I am Demir, i am using surfer v12 Voxler 3 strater 4 and didger 5, we want to make reserve calculation using our drilling data can you help;
There are a wide range of calculations that can be performed using Surfer, Voxler. Strater, and Didger. Are you trying to calculate the volume of the reserve? If so, Surfer can be used to calculate the volume between two surfaces. Additional information about calculating volumes in Surfer can be found in the resources below:
If you are interested in performing a different calculation or have additional questions, please feel free to email email@example.com.
I'm using Strater 3, and see no easy way to copy a well from one project to another. I try to right click on a well, but do not see COPY as a choice. So I end up recreating the same table in the 2nd project and going through the process to recreate the well graphic. Can this be done more easily in v5?
