The Synergy Between Voxler and Strater: Creating a 3D Conceptual Site Model

One of our power users is accomplishing his goals using a combination of our applications. Joe Harrer, who is an independent Hydrogeologist with Anthropocene Solutions Inc., is using a synergy between Voxler and Strater to create a conceptual site model of a brine storage facility located in rural Alberta. For those of you that follow my blogs, I recently posted a blog article on Joe Harrer’s application of Voxler to create a 3D brine plume model of the same storage facility. The model was used for ground water monitoring and remediation efforts. Joe has taken the brine plume model a step further and has developed it into a complete conceptual site model of the facility. In Voxler, he has incorporated cross sections of the site’s lithological layers that were generated from borehole data in Strater, groundwater and ground level surfaces, groundwater monitoring wells, a site map, and drone imagery to create a complete conceptual site model.

Adding Wells to Cross Sections in Strater 5

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.
