TS V7.342 - 23 July, 2014

TerraStation Version 7.342 - 23 July, 2014

Petrophysics - a normalization option has been added to the crossplot module.

IMAGELog - hole shape track ellipses may now be displayed as an overlay option.

DLIS Export - the DLIS exporter has been modified to support export of files to Schlumberger's free borehole viewer, WellEye. This is largely a matter of curve mnemonics, and may not work for all images. If you want to do this and are having problems, please contact TERRASCIENCES so we can fix them

LIS and DLIS Export - a problem with the button order when exporting GeoXplorer images has been fixed.

Formation Viewer - users can now add linear features in a polyline sequence. That is, the second point of the feature can be used as the first point for the next feature. This lets users trace breakouts with multiple line segments.

Map Loading - the loader has been improved to better ignore mismatches if a UWI is missing during merge mode.

IMAGELog - one can now output a simple curve status report from the interval graphs track.

TS V7.341 - 10 July, 2014

Map Loading - has been improved to better preserve existing map limits when incoming data posts within them.

TS V7.338 - 4 June, 2014

TerraStation Version 7.338 - 04 June, 2014

Sonic Waveform - a horizontal line has been added to improve accuracy when DT guide editing.

Sonic Waveform - an initial version of the C66 modulus computation for transverse isotropic within perpendicular borehole situations has been added.

Sonic Waveform - a preliminary version of the Butterworth filter for sonic wave form processing has been added.

Note: normally this is a two pass filter, first low then high, but if low pass cutoff is 0, no low pass filter will be done. If the high pass cutoff is 0, no high pass filter will be done.If using an alternate filter for anisotropy, the filter will be same general type as that defined on the Data Control tab. The three Butterworth parameters are order (exponent), high pass cutoff and low pass cutoff.
