RockWorks 15 is geological software used to manage, analyze and visualize geological data.
RockWorks 15 is integrated geological visualization and analysis software developed to address the needs of those in the environmental, civil engineering and mining industries. A variety of easy-to-use graphical tools with advanced interpolation algorithms give users the ability to visualize geologic data.
RockWorks 15 is a broad, integrated geological data management, analysis, and visualization tool.
It contains a borehole data manager for easy entry of downhole data: observed lithology/stratigraphy contacts, geophysics or geochemistry measurements, water levels, fractures and deviated drill hole surveys.
Downhole data can be easily analyzed using RockWorks14's two dimensional and three dimensional OpenGL visualization tools.
Use the new Project Manager interface to view and open files in the current project folder.
Plot hydrochemistry data as Durov diagrams, with optional point density of TDS color contours.
Perform standard tasks such as creating contour maps and site maps, picking your stratigraphy from your observed lithology, and generating two-dimensional cross-sections and three-dimensional fence diagrams.
Do analysis of chemical data with piper/stiff diagrams and the generation of two-dimensional contour maps and three-dimensional solid models of your contaminant distributions.
Use your stratigraphy data to generate three-dimensional stratigraphic models and see how your stratigraphy and plumes interact.
Perform volumetric and mass calculations on solid models of your contaminants as well as your different stratigraphic units.
Suited for use with coal, industrial mineral, and other stratabound economic deposits, in both the exploration and production phases.
Create surface geochem contour maps, two-dimensional elevation contour maps and three-dimensional terrain models.
Provides full volume and mass statistics for any orebody model.
The borehole data manager is a data window used for entry and management downhole data including:
The RockPlot3D OpenGL plotting windows displays:
2D Profiles : Creates a solid model from your borehole lithology data, and you select a vertical plane within the model as your profile.
3D Fence Diagrams : Select multiple overlapping or cross-cutting panels in any direction.
3D Lithology Models : Create a solid three dimensional block model of your borehole lithology data
Lithology Volumetrics : Calculate volume or mass of the lithology layers in your solid model
Two Dimensioanl Profiles: The 2D Stratigraphic Profile generator creates a solid model of your stratigraphy.
Fence Diagrams:A three dimensional stratigraphic model is created from your borehole stratigraphy data.
Stratigraphic Block Models:Once you've created a 3D strat manipulate your model in the 3D viewer.
Elevation Maps Of Formation Tops:Make a two or three dimensional elevation map for the top of any of your stratigraphic units.
Fence Diagrams : Create fence diagrams to visualize multiple transects in three dimension through your solid geochemistry model.
Solid Geochem Models : Model your contaminant plume or other borehole geochem data, set concentration limits in the viewer to view isosurfaces.
Volumetrics, Reserve Estimates : Detailed volumetric and reserve estimate capability calculations are based on your geochemistry solid model.
Borehole Maps : Create unique symbols and colors for each sample point/borehole and display subsurface traces for deviated or inclined wells.
Coordinate Systems : Convert borehole locations from lat/lon or township/range to UTM prior to display.
2D Profiles :Choose any transect to view your aquifer from multiple angles.
Plan View Maps : Create contour maps showing various features of your aquifer (superface elevations, subface elevations and isopach).
3D Models : Model the top and bottom surfaces of your aquifer in three dimension
Solid modeling utilities read XYZG data from the data sheet and linked downhole data files, or from existing XYZG data files. Modeling methods: Inverse-distance, or closest point
Models may be dislayed as solid block diagrams
Use grid-based volumetrics with thickness, stripping ratios, distance-to-point, polygon clipping, and up to 5 other data column filters.
Rose diagrams explain frequency of lineations in a given orientation. Create full or half rose diagrams. Create diagrams from azimuth bearing or line endpoint data. Assign custom petal widths.
Two and three-dimensional contour maps of lineation frequencies, lengths, intersections, or a weighted combination thereof
Depict the orientation of unidirectional features.
3D Planar Aanalysis
Planar data plotted as great circles or pole
Piper diagrams illustrate ion concentrations and total dissolved solids for multiple samples.
Stiff diagrams illustrate relative ion concentrations for multiple samples
RockWorks has coordinate conversion tools for UTM (XY), lat/lon (degree), land grid (Jeffersonian), polar coordinates, compass/survey data and more.
Use RockWorks to convert information for Geographic Coordinate Systems and Compass Survey Data.
The LogPlot to RockWorks program is designed for the LogPlot user who wants to create a RockWorks project using two or more LogPlot "dat" files.
Using log design information, this tool can determine the LogPlot entities that can be imported into RockWorks and, where possible, it will offer the user control over the specific import options.
Lithology/stratigraphy data (LogPlot: "Lith"), geochemical data (LogPlot "Histogram"), geophysical data (LogPlot "Curve"), log symbols, and text can all be imported.
Import & export data, graphics, grid models and solid models into and out of RockWorks in the following formats.
Import Formats: RockWorks99 Projects, ASCII, DBF, DXF, Contour Lines, XYZ Points, Laser Atlanta Survey Files, RockBase Fixed Field, SEG-P1 ShotPoint Data, Excel, AGL, DGL, ArcInfo EOO Polylines, BMP, DEM, ESR, Geosoft GXF, RockWorks7, Surfer
Export Formats: ASCII, DBF, Excel, DXF, BMP, JPG, WMF, EMF, XYZ, Geosoft GXF, Ohio Automation ENZ, RockWorks7, RockwWare TRM Terrain Models, Surfer ASCII & Binary, VistaPro, NOeSYS, Slicer Dicer
Built-in software tutorials are displayed on the screen when you first start the program, with step-by-step information about creating a variety of maps, diagrams, and reports. The tutorial window can be accessed at any time from the RockWorks program. Lessons can be printed out for easy use.
Text and pictures are displayed in the program window with descriptions about the program tool and its settings. Simply point to a menu item and read the "abstract".
Click on the "Help" or "?" button in the program windows to launch the standard RockWorks2006 help messages with the applicable topic displayed.
RockWorks2006 is shipped with an instruction manual that complements the menu abstracts and on-line help.
