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:
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!
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:
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?
