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.

Customer Spotlight: The Velenje Coal Mine Benefits From Strater

The Velenje Coal Mine operates on the largest Slovenian coal deposit and on one of the thickest known coal layers in the world. In 137 years of operation of the coal mine, more than 225 million tonnes of lignite have been extracted from the lignite layers, which are up to 165 m in thickness.

We use Strater for producing our reports of completed wells. Our reports are comprehensive text reports with graphics produced with Strater. We gather data for Strater from a database of wells. We create many template files, each with a different look, for different types of graphical reports. With Strater, we can also create cross sections from our exploitation field to represent different geological data.
