What's New in Strater 5?

Strater 5 takes well log, borehole and cross section plotting to a new level in ease of use. Strater users will experience major improvements in every aspect of functionality to increase log production speed and quality. The major additions and changes are highlighted in this section.


 

 


 

New raster logs

Import depth-registered raster logs, import unregistered raster logs and then depth-register them and pick layer tops, and create cross sections from raster logs. Strater 5 makes it easy to take your paper logs and use them with digital data to make informed decisions.


After importing an unregistered raster log from a TIF or other image file, easily depth-register it in a few
simple steps so it is properly depth-located relative to your other logs.

User interface enhancements

Find commands more easily than ever with the new ribbon bar user-interface. Additionally, use the new Table Manager to simplify your project, navigate to properties more confidently with the redesigned Property Manager tabs, and use the new Welcome to Strater dialog to quickly and easily begin a new project or recall an existing one.


Quickly create and customize your borehole, map, and cross section views with the intuitive new ribbon
bar interface, the new welcome dialog, and the new/redesigned managers.

Fill Style Editor and Manager

Strater 5 has added even more customization opportunity with the new Fill Style Editor and Fill Style Manager. Use the Fill Style Editor to create and save custom fill styles, and then view and manage predefined and custom fill styles in the Fill Style Manager.


Create multi-layered custom fill styles with the new Fill Style Editor, and then manage those custom fill
styles and the predefined fill styles in the Fill Style Manager.

Line/Symbol log improvements

Strater 5 has added much functionality to line/symbol logs. You can now add new curves to existing line/symbol logs so that all overlain logs are moved and optionally scaled together, and you can link the scale bar line color to the log line color.


Add additional curves to existing line/symbol logs with a click of the mouse, and automatically set the
scale bar line color to the log line color to fully customize your line/symbol logs.

Add well to cross section

Forgot to add a specific well to your cross section? Not sure what combinations of wells the client wants to see? No problem! Strater 5 allows for the addition of wells to pre-existing cross sections. Just edit your well selector line and then click the Recreate button for the cross section, or else create a new well selector line and choose it for your cross section.


Simply choose a new well selector to update your cross section with the new wells.

Water Level

Display water level symbols on your logs without having to overlay post logs, and connect the water level symbols on cross section logs with a water level line to give the most accurate representation of the subsurface.


Any number of water level symbols from a depth table can be displayed on logs, and these symbols can
be connected with a customizable line on a cross section.

Customize headers/footers by page

Display a larger header pane on the first page, and display certain header/footer information only on the first page, so you can include all the information you need on the first page, and then streamline subsequent pages to just include the basics.


Choose to show more detailed project information on just the first page in a larger header and then more
abbreviated scale bars/log titles on subsequent pages in a smaller header.

Miscellaneous log improvements

Strater 5 has added many improvements to log types, including the ability to have much bigger tick marks for depth logs, so you can show a depth grid across your view, and the ability to repeat complex text log items that straddle a page break on both pages.


Increase the tick length for depth logs to create a depth grid across cross sections or borehole logs.

Show only legend entries that are in-use

Have a large library of scheme for your company? No problem! Strater 5 allows you to omit unused items by checking a box, so only the scheme items present in your current view are displayed.


Update your legend with only relevant information with the click of a button.

New and improved Text Editor with date/time format builder

Exercise more control over your data than ever with the new Text Editor. Use the new Date/Time Format Builder to create custom dates and times in the exact format you want, or choose from the list of predefined formats for your region now that Strater automatically recognizes your computer’s locale.


Click the Insert Date/Time button in the improved Text Editor to open the new Date/Time Format Builder
dialog, where you can mix and match predefined and custom dates and times.

"End of log" line

Display a line at the end of your logs to indicate where the end of the hole was and separate out an area for additional notes.


Add an ‘end of log’ line to your cross section or borehole view to define where your hole ends.

Back to top

 


Keep cross section layer customization

Strater allows for the flexibility of reshaping cross section layers if the defaults don’t match your understanding of the subsurface, but certain actions cause the layers to be redrawn. Rather than being prompted each time the cross section will be redrawn, Strater 5 allows you to check one checkbox to always keep your customized cross section layers.


Completely customize your cross section layers and then, with one click keep the
customization through all other changes you make to the cross section.

Improvements to cross sections from line logs

Strater 5 has added many improvements to cross sections from line logs that help you to get the exact output you need. These include the ability to show well traces as deviated, the ability to add linked scale bars to the logs, and the ability to draw layers horizontally across all logs.


Display line log cross sections with deviated boreholes and linked scale bars
to get a true picture of the subsurface.

Linked text Hole ID filter

Have multiple boreholes in your borehole view? No problem! Strater now allows you to specify a Hole ID filter for applicable linked text items, so you don’t have to manually type what you’ve already entered into data tables.


Choose a Hole ID filter for linked text items to display linked text for multiple boreholes in one view.






Display deviated boreholes as inclined logs in the cross section view

Display the logs in the cross section as inclined according to their deviation data!
Display your borehole inclination or dip in the cross section.
Show deviation paths of wells in the map view

In most industries vertical boreholes are the stuff of legends. Strater 4 recognizes this and allows you to show the true path of your borehole in the map view.
Show the true deviation path of your boreholes on the map view.
Set and change coordinate system in the map view

It’s never been easier to add combine data from a multitude of sources to create the most informative maps possible.
Now that Strater supports Golden Software’s full coordinate system library, you can mix and match data from different coordinate systems, giving you tremendous flexibility and times savings when creating your maps and displaying cross sections in the desired units!
Set the coordinate system of each of your map layers and change the coordinate system of the map as a whole in this easy-to-use setup.
Create cross sections from line logs

Don’t have lithology data for your boreholes? Not to worry! Strater 4 allows you to create a cross section from line logs. Add or import layer marks to indicate the layer picks, and then specify if they are the tops or bottoms of the layer.
Create a visually stunning cross section from geophysical or other depth-registered data.
Create cross section layers manually

If you’re not happy with the default cross section layers that Strater creates for you, delete them and easily and quickly create your own layers! Customize your cross sections using your years of experience to guide you.
With a few simple clicks you can create manual cross section layers that reflect what you know to be true about the subsurface.
Export data to Voxler using new commands

Compatibility with Voxler is now even better! Utilize the stunning 3D visualization of Voxler to show your well paths and volumes.
Export from your Strater tables to display VolRenders and WellRenders in Voxler’s 3D interface.
Show the header and footer only on specified pages

Pick your pages: only show the header or footer on the first page, last page, or on all pages in the view or when you print.
Choose to show the header only on the first page and the footer only on the last page!
Draw unconformity lines to show an unconformable contact

Draw an unconformity between different lithologies in any view! You have complete control over the amplitude and wavelength of the waves.
Draw unconformable contacts between lithologies in your borehole (left) or cross section (right) view.
Add a horizontal scale bar to a cross section




Add horizontal scale bars to your cross section, and change the display units!
Display the distance across your cross section using a horizontal scale bar.
Templates are easier to use!

Open a template and import the data for all tables immediately! When you click OK, the log is exactly what you need without spending extra time importing data into all the individual data tables.
Import data to use in the template as soon as you open the template file! Once you import data for a table in the template this is indicated by a change of color.
Change the units in the cross section well header or the scale bar!




You have full control over the units displayed in the well header and scale bar in the cross section view. As long as the map has units defined, you can convert the units (even lat/long!) to any other units such as meters, feet, miles or kilometers to display on the cross section.
Change the units of the well header and scale bar in the cross section. For example, a map in latitude and longitude can display well headers in meters and a scale bar in kilometers.
Set the Spacing of Multiple Objects




Do you want all your logs exactly next to each other? The space objects commands now work on more than 2 objects at a time!
Select your logs, click the button and all the space is removed between the logs.
Set the Spacing Between Objects




Set all your logs exactly the same width apart! No more painstaking math to calculate the position of each log, or inaccurate eyeball spacing!
Set the spacing between multiple selected objects, such as the spacing between all logs in your view, with one simple command.
Wrap Linked Text to Multiple Lines



Specify the width of a linked text object, and any text that exceeds that length is wrapped to the next line!
Specify the width of your linked text object and have the text wrap to multiple lines.
Replicate Your Borehole View
Creating an exact copy of a borehole view in your project is easy with the new view-only template! Previously, you could only save as a full template, complete with data tables and all views in the project. If you only wanted one view, you would need to delete all the extra information after the template was loaded.
Now you can save only a single borehole view as a view-only template; no data tables, no extra views. Just save the view to the view template, open the view template, assign the existing data (or choose to import new data), and the copy is created!
Save a single borehole view to a view-only template file! No data tables, no extra views; just the information you need.
Specify Inclination or Dip for Hole Angle

Specify the angle of the hole as either inclination or dip! Previously, you could only use inclination. Don’t modify your data to work with Strater, choose to let Strater handle your data as it is!
Import your survey data specifying the hole angle as either dip or inclination data! It is your choice.
