TS V7.326 - 12 February, 2014

TS V7.326 - 12 February, 2014

General - improvements in zooming for 3 dimensional surface rendering displays.

IMAGELog - a preference has been added so that IMAGELog can be opened in "fit width" mode.

Data Loading - the mnemonic APD is now considered as a valid reference for surface elevation.

DLIS Data Loading - a problem which prevented users from selecting a "user defined" image when loading DLIS data has been corrected.

Petrophysics - Options - Pie/Bar Chat. A new option to display proportional data (e.g. lithology, or porosities) as pie charts or horizontal bar graph. Configurations can be saved and used in the Interval Graph track in IMAGElog also.

Petrophysics - a problem with RFT crossplots when the data source is engineering data has been fixed.

Petrophysics - interrogations of lines on RFT crossplots now include the entry ID number if the data is from the ENG file. User can also specify if the data is to be displayed on MD or TVDSS when sourced from the ENG file.

TS V7.325 - 6 February, 2014

TS V7.325 - 6 February, 2014

IMAGELog - the interrogation function is deactivated for facies when in pie chart interval mode.

IMAGELog - the behavior of the mouse over tooltip has been improved for core image tracks and picks on them.

Borehole Imaging - units may now be declared when exporting picks, breakouts, linear features, and vugs.

General - when rescaling depth units, an option has been added to also rescale auxiliary data file containing TVDSS, XDEV, or YDEV columns. This is typically used when changing depth units for a well.

Map Loading - the "One Line Per Z" map loading option can now load depths on non MD bases (provided the well has sufficient data for the conversion).

Sonic Waveform - a right click option for the slowness calculation has been added.

Sonic Waveform - the child windows for sonic waveform calculations will be "always on top" so calculated results are not hidden.

IMAGELog - an "end date" field has been added to the information collected for engineering data. This can be used to filter engineering items displayed to only those performed during a certain date range. If this entry is blank, the engineering entry is assumed to have been performed entirely on the given date for it.

Borehole Imaging - the Z acceleration histogram is now stored in memory so that the window can be resized without having to recompute the histogram.

IMAGELog - new grid options have been added to permit tick marks on only the left or right side.

General - a metric version of the Egypt Red Zone projection has been added.

TS V7.324 - 24 January, 2014

TS V7.324 - 24 January, 2014

Borehole Imaging - the program now shares data in some situations between multiple tracks on an image that are drawn from the same image file. This should improve the performance when drawing the display.

Correlation - in zig-zag mode, one may now cause a well to be repeated (at the right of the section). Right click on the reference map on the well to be repeated and choose "Add well again to section".

Mapping - in the special mapping function mode, maps made that post rose diagrams now have a scaling factor for the rose based on the largest petal. If set to a non zero value, roses with larger petals will plot larger on the map.

Data Loading - the azimuth can be set as a loading parameter when loading core photos.

Petrophysics - Net Pay - the property sheet will always display as the top window.

TCL Macro Processing - a new function has been added to back calculate the deviation survey from the TVDSS, XDEV and YDEV curves. This can be used as an orientation method for core photos or images if no other information is available. It can also be used as a quality control method against other orientation data.

DLIS Data Loading - a problem loading user defined images in the DLIS loader has been fixed.

TS V7.323+ 20 January, 2014

TS V7.323+ 20 January, 2014

This patch release fixes a specific problem restoring the well display template used with a previously stored cross section.

TS V7.323 - 16 January, 2014

TS V7.323 - 16 January, 2014

Synthetic Seismogram - a Select File button has been added for loading a user defined wavelet. The header labeling for user defined wavelets has been improved.

IMAGELOG - improved thin bed removal and added the ability to remove overlapping lithology and facies beds in IMAGELog lithology and facies tracks.

DLIS Loading - a potential crash condition when loading certain image types has been resolved.

Map Import - multi valued Z values can now be loaded during map import. To use this feature, activate the Use Merging checkbox when selecting or creating a map. Then use the Add Z Multiple setting for merging the Zs. This does not permit mixed methods - it will always add a multiple if the Z is found in the existing map.

TS V7.322 - 08 January, 2014

TS V7.322 - 08 January, 2014

Sonic Waveform - performance for the frequency dispersion calculation has been improved.

IMAGELog - Tadpole and SCAT tracks - breakouts and linear features can now be displayed on a borehole lowside basis.

IMAGELog - Synthetic Seismogram track - a problem when using a user defined wavelet file has been addressed.

IMAGELog - top markers within IMAGELog can now be plotted from stratigraphy files instead of a map file if desired. To do this, add a Stratigraphy track at the far right of the template, then use the Overlay function to post the tops on the display.

Map Data Management - an explicit option to delete a map data set has been added.

DLIS Import - comment sections in an incoming DLIS file are now stored in the .params report file.

DLIS Export - the ability to include comment files when writing a DLIS file has been enhanced. Control for this feature is found under the Advanced Options.

Petrophysics - the regression line form names under crossplot have been clarified.

Synthetic Seismic - a wavelet can now be loaded from a file that is formatted as SEGY.

Petrophysics - Net Pay - a problem when computing ratios in units other than the well depth units has been fixed.

TS V7.321 - 11 December, 2013

TS V7.321 - 11 December, 2013

Sonic Waveform - selected waveform parameters for a Sonic Waveform track are now saved in a configuration file for later access.

Sonic Waveform - the Compute Semblance button has been replaced by an Accept button.

Plotting - a problem with text display in large EMF plots has been fixed.

TVD - new QC plots have been added to the TVD module.

Synthetic Seismic - a problem with user defined wavelets (introduced in TS version 7.320) has been resolved.

Data Loading - a problem adding a new well if the name matched an existing well has been fixed.

IMAGELog - an option to set the size of the symbols used in a show track is now available.

TS V7.320 - 4 December, 2013

TS V7.320 - 04 December, 2013

IMAGELog - some problems with borehole diameter presentation when core photos overlap have been resolved.

IMAGELog - Pressure Model track - a potential issue of incorrect overburden pressure in offshore wells has been addressed. It was possible for the pressure of the water column to be added from the top of the well interval in certain circumstances.

IMAGELog - Synthetic Seismogram track - a potential crash condition when the user defined wavelet is undefined has been prevented.

Plotting - in plots containing a degree symbol, warning messages could be seen if using Adobe to view PDF output. This has been corrected.

Data Loading - WITSML data loading supports an additional variant of the incoming file structure.

Data Loading - a problem when loading "fast" curve data from LAS files has been resolved.

Data Export - the rules for output file names have been relaxed.

Dip Analysis - some problems with the auto scaling and start position have been resolved for azimuthal vector plots.

IMAGELog - paged plots might skip plotting of track headers in certain one page plot situations. This has been fixed.

Correlation - a problem with the deflection mode type toggle being corrupted which occurred when using a very long IMAGELog template file name has been corrected.

Data Loading - the DLIS loader now handles incoming "text" curves correctly. The data is not loaded unless the text resolves to a number, but other curves present are now handled appropriately.  Most DLIS files do not use this approach.

Correlation - the ability to compute intersections of a target well with selected image picks from a source well is now available.

Plotting - a problem with coordinate overflow when creating large EMF output plots has been fixed. This might cause the drawing to miss certain elements.
