Drillholes serve as windows to the subsurface, providing invaluable data and insights, from resource extraction to environmental protection. This latest release of Surfer enhances the existing drillhole functionality.
When working with deviated drillholes, accurate representation in three dimensions is critical. Calculate the true vertical depth along the hole by choosing one of five different calculation methods to generate the most accurate drillhole path. When you change calculation methods, immediately view the change in both the 2D plot view and 3D view for a quick accuracy check.
Another improved feature is Surfer’s Drillhole Manager. Now, the data you’ve meticulously collected and consolidated from numerous drillers can be saved to a single file for further analysis. For example, save a single table or multiple tables as an XLSX file and share with a coworker. Or, save your interval or point data to an XYZC data file to then interpolate and visualize in the 3D view as a fully rendered volume alongside the drillhole paths.
