There are four different view types available in a Strater workspace: borehole views, map views, cross section views, and tables. There is no limit to the number of views that can be associated with a Strater project.
The primary graphical component to a Strater document is a borehole view. A borehole view represents a collection of logs and drawing objects used to graphically display data for one or more boreholes. A borehole view may be derived from a template file or it can be created from a default view window with the necessary log items defined to create the borehole. The borehole view displays the true data for the project once data are defined in the project file.
You are presented with an empty borehole view when you first start Strater.
During a Strater session, new projects with an empty borehole view are created with the File | New Project command. New borehole views in an existing project are created with the Home | New | Borehole View command, clicking the button, or right-clicking in the View Manager and selecting New Borehole View.
Existing borehole views are opened by clicking the appropriate Borehole tab, clicking on the borehole name in the View Manager, or by selecting Window | [Borehole name]. By default, the first borehole view is named Borehole 1 so this borehole view would be opened by choosing the Window | Borehole 1 command. To open an existing project, use the File | Open command.
Map views graphically display wells on a map. Map views display any wells listed in the collars table. Wells can be removed individually to customize the appearance of the map view. Map views also can display base maps, such as field outlines or exported Surfer maps. Drawing objects and labels can be added to a map view. Map views can have maps from different projections and can convert the map into any supported projection.
New map views are created in an existing project by clicking the Home | New | Map View command, clicking the button, or right-clicking in the View Manager and choosing New Map View.
Existing map views are opened by clicking the appropriate Map tab, clicking the map view name in the View Manager, or by clicking Window | [Map name]. By default, the first map view is named Map 1 so this map view would be opened by clicking the Window | Map 1 command.
Cross section views display multiple wells on a page. Each well can have a variety of curves, similar to a borehole view. Wells are connected to display layers, zones, or lithologies across the page, connecting information from the wells. Automatic connections between wells or manual connections between wells can be made. Well spacing and elevation hanging can be altered to give you the look you need to display your data. Deviated wells can be displayed as vertical or with the deviation displayed in the cross section. The cross section view also allows data to be exported to a data file for use in Surfer or exported to a Voxler 3D display to create fence diagrams. Drawing objects and labels can be added to a cross section view.
New cross section views are created in an existing project by clicking the File | New | Cross Section View command, clicking the button, or right-clicking in the View Manager and choosing New Cross Section View to add a new blank cross section view to the existing project.
A new cross section window can also be created with the Cross Section | Create/Add | Create Cross Section command.
Existing cross section views are opened by clicking the appropriate Cross Section tab, clicking the cross section view name in the View Manager, or by clicking Window | [Cross Section name]. By default, the first cross section view is named Cross Section 1 so this cross section view would be opened by clicking the Window | Cross Section 1 command.
All data used to generate logs in a borehole view must be opened or imported into a Strater project. These data tables are represented by data tabs. Collar tables, depth tables, interval tables, lithology tables, project settings tables, survey tables, text item tables, and well construction tables can be created in Strater. Each table type has a different function in Strater. Refer to the Table Types page for an in-depth discussion of the types.
During a Strater session, new blank tables are created by clicking the Home | New | Table command, clicking the button, or by pressing CTRL+W on the keyboard.
To open existing data into the current project, click the File I Open command. If you want the worksheet to appear in a new data table, select the worksheet and click Open. Step through the opening process and a new data table is added.
To import existing data into the current project in an existing table, click on the table where you want the data to appear. Click File | Import. In the Import Data dialog, select the data file and click Open. Step through the importing process and the data is added to the current table.
