TS V7.375 - 17 June, 2015

TerraStation Version 7.375 - 17 June, 2015

IMAGELog - a rank setting has been added to the Comments track when using stratigraphy file comments. This gives comment track users greater control over what will appear.

IMAGELog - users can now set curve shading to/from a constant interactively. Click on the Constant button on Display Attributes and then click on the desired shading limit in the curve track.

Borehole Imaging - Track Configuration for an imaging track has been converted to the new tree user interface style.

IMAGELog - Rose Diagram tracks - a color legend has been added when using pick grouping and the "Full Report" annotation setting.

Dip Analysis - a Group Control has been added to the Display Preferences for Rose Diagrams. Group data definitions can be set here without passing through the Dip Data Control user interface.

Map Export - the user interface for map export has been redesigned to use the new tree menu system and simplify the sequence.

Borehole Imaging - P1AZ can now be computed if desired from P1NO, DEV, and DAZ, in the View/Edit data table editor.

General - file names are now abbreviated on buttons and labels to improve communication for long file names.

Borehole Imaging - the caliper key in image caliper QC plots has been made more appropriate for NGI and dual OBMI tools.

Petrophysics - a possible crash condition in Net Pay has been resolved.

Petrophysics - a problem with the number of Monte Carlo iterations in multi well mode has been fixed.

Correlation - the vertical scale bar is the only one displayed when wells are regularly spaced in a cross section.

Data Loading - the Auxiliary Data loader can now load TerraStation ASCII files directly, making it easier to append picks from one pick set into another, for example.

Correlation - an option has been added to access the base map settings from the well reference map.

TS V7.374 - 20 May, 2015

TerraStation Version 7.374 - 20 May, 2015

Dip Analysis - Statistical Report - the von Mises concentration parameter value is no longer displayed for data counts less than 2 since they are not meaningful for small sample sets.

Dip Analysis - Stereonet - the symbol legend position has been moved slightly in from the left to improve quick screen capture by third party softwares.

Petrophysics - Crossplots - the data display range of the Z axis of a 3D crossplot can now be reversed.

IMAGELog - Stratigraphy track - The minimum and maximum rank now allows you to use all 30 ranks. It was restricted to 20.

Sonic Waveform - the sonic waveform Track Configuration now utilizes a tree list style interface for improved organization.

General - list selectors involving tree lists have restored search and sort functions. (Lost in version 7.364.)

General - leading asterisks can be used when searching single selection lists. E.g. a search such as "*GR" would reduce the list to elements including CGR, GR, etc.

TS V7.373 - 13 May, 2015

TerraStation Version 7.373 - 13 May, 2015

Dip Analysis - the module now uses the tree list style user interface for controlling Display Preferences. This is too facilitate less cluttered option panels.

Sonic Waveform - support has been added for the Schlumberger QSLT SWF tool.

Sonic Waveform - data handling for extreme values has been improved. Users should run the diagnostics option as a QC measure to determine if there are anomalous values in the data set.

Petrophysics - a number of improvements have been added to the 3D xplot. These include multi-well capability, drop lines, point 'shadows', supporting the bubble plot, color coding by lithology or facies, and drawing the various keys correctly positioned.

Petrophysics - the symbol size is now remembered in crossplot setups.

TS V7.372 - 29 April, 2015

TerraStation Version 7.372 - 29 April, 2015

General - when using tree selection lists, a right click option allows the user to expand or collapse the list.

IMAGELog - text orientation for new stratigraphy entries is now set to default, meaning that it will be displayed at the track setting.

Correlation - map point colors now may be used to distinguish either the presence/absence of curves, tops, or both. Control for this is found using the right click Map Options when a map is displayed for section creation, under the Data Control group on the General tab.

Borehole Imaging - fractions of a percent can now be used in "full interval mode". This provides another zooming option for borehole images. (Full interval mode only works when using an MD depth reference.)

Well Data Loading - users can now select a set of files for loading to a core image track. The file names must include depth information.

Borehole Imaging - Borehole Visualization - some additional pick display representations have been added, diamonds and rectangles. Right click on the SHAPE column when editing tspcktyp.v70 to set this. When using rectangles, the longer axis points down dip.

Borehole Imaging - Borehole Visualization - a "mesh" setting has been added to the Pick Form control, to provide texture to the pick planes.

True Vertical Depth - curves of theoretical hole inclination and azimuth are now created and stored when computing TVD values.

Petrophysics - Crossplot - an issue with excess pressure RFT plots when using metric depths has been fixed.

TS V7.371 - 22 April, 2015

TerraStation Version 7.371 - 22 April, 2015

Borehole Imaging - View/Edit Data for images now offers an option to compute P1NO.

DLIS Export - P1NO is now included in the curve set when exporting images.

IMAGELog - picks are no longer displayed on core image tracks if the Pick Option is set to No Picking.

Borehole Imaging - a problem existed where Dual OBMI pads might be erased if the overlapping pads were turned off. This has been fixed.

General - stratigraphy files now have a Comment field, which can be displayed in Comments tracks.

General - the number of ranks for a stratigraphy file has been increased to 30.

Borehole Imaging - borehole image positions can be marked in text form such as N,S,E, W for True and Magnetic North referenced images, or U, D, L, R if in highside or lowside view. This is the Reference Angle toggle on the General tab of Track Configuration.

IMAGELog - Plotting - the image width is now displayed with the other dimension information when plotting from IMAGELog.

Borehole Imaging - some computed parameters can now be included when exporting picks. These are AZIM_P for azimuth projection, and AZIM_T or DIP_T for subtracting a trend value.

Borehole Imaging - one can now delete an image from within the image list selector located on the General tab of the Track Configuration.

Borehole Imaging - some problems with pick edit navigation have been corrected.

Borehole Imaging - generation of the pick legend (Pick Key) may be restricted to a given depth interval in Track and Template modes.

IMAGELog - Engineering data selection now uses tree view checkboxes.
