TS V7.459 - 10 January, 2018

TerraStation Version 7.459 10 January 2018

Clarity - the F5 function is now active in Clarity to refresh the curve list data.

Borehole Imaging - the pick export in psuedo LAS format now tries to ensure that the file extension is set to LAS.

The settings are "Header and Footer", "Header at Top Only", and "Same as Screen Display". This permits the user to maintain a preferred screen display without having to change the settings when a plot file is desired.

Data Loading - ASCII well file formats can now be saved and restored in the batch ASCII file loader.

Data Loading - when loading well logs from ASCII files, the system now defaults to the previous format used.

Data Loading - a "select existing" option has been added for batch loading ASCII well logs. This directs all incoming file data to the selected well.

Data Export - when exporting core data, the top and bottom depths are now converted to the depths referenced in the core depth curve, if one exists.

Borehole Imaging - data processing is improved for the circumstance where both equalization and dead button correction are being used.

General - the system for symbol handling has been improved so that users can keep their own custom symbol set separate from TerraStation standard symbols. Please contact TERRASCIENCES if you would like to use this feature.

Breakout Displays - for non Schlumberger images, there was an error in the computation of the True Azimuth display setting. This would include magnetic declination incorrectly, and has been addressed. It did not impact the default display setting of BH North Azimuth.
