To create a cross section, click the Cross Section | Create/Add | Create Cross Section command. The program will step you through the process of importing data and selecting the wells to display in the cross section. To create a depth-registered raster cross section, two or more raster logs must have been added to the project. The raster logs can be any combination of unregistered raster logs that have been manually depth-registered and registered raster logs. Additionally, you must have imported or created a collars table for the raster log boreholes/wells.
To create a cross section in Strater:
Click the Home | New | Cross Section View command.
Click the Cross Section | Create/Add | Create Cross Section command.
Select the collars table:
If a single collars table exists, it is automatically selected.
If multiple collars tables exist, select the appropriate collars table in the Look for Well Locations dialog and click OK.
If no collars table exists, select the file that contains the collars information in the Open Collars File dialog and click Open.
In the XLS Import Options dialog, select the Collars sheet and click OK.
In the Specify Worksheet Column Definitions dialog, make sure that Specify Column Header Row is checked and that the row number is set to 1. Click Next.
In the Specify Data Type and Column Positions dialog, make sure that all columns are listed correctly. Click Finish.
At this point, a map view is created with the wells in the collars table. In the Create Well Selector dialog,
Set the order the wells are displayed in the list on the right side of the dialog. The first well listed is on the far left side of the cross section. The last well listed is on the far right side of the cross section. To rearrange the order, click on a well on the right side of the dialog and drag it to the desired location in the list.
To add wells to the cross section, click on the well name on the left side of the dialog in the Available wells list. Click the Add button to add the well to the right side of the dialog.
To remove wells from the cross section, click on the well name on the right side of the dialog in the Wells in selector list. Click Remove to remove the selected well.
When all the wells are in the proper order, click OK. After clicking OK, the well selector line is created in the map view.
In the Import Cross Section Data dialog,
Set the Cross section log type to Depth-registered raster log.
Set the Table for each Hole ID to the range table. Range tables are created automatically when a registered raster log is created or when an unregistered raster log is depth-registered.
In the Import Layer Marks dialog,
Check the Specify layer data check box if you wish to include layer marks from the layer marks table or tables.
Set the Table for each Hole ID to the layer marks table. Layer marks tables may be created when a registered or unregistered raster log is created.
Set the Data Column for each Hole ID to the layer column in the layer marks table.
The default cross section is created. Because the cross section was created from raster logs, the logs are displayed showing the wells that were selected and the connected layers between the wells are also displayed.
If a well selector line already has been created and is selected, the cross section automatically uses that well selector line when creating the cross section. Cross sections are automatically created connecting all the wells in the well selector line. Wells are connected in the cross section from left to right in the order they are connected in the well selector line.
Refer to the Connect Logs with Layers, and layer marks Import and Create/Edit pages for information on connecting wells or changing connections between wells.
Strater requires a range table for depth-registered raster cross sections.
