How do I set the scale to 1:500 in Strater?

In Strater, to get a scale of 1" = 500" (1:500), all you need to do is set the Standard Scale 1 property for the borehole view. Click View | Display | View Properties (View | View Properties in Strater 3 and 4), and in the Property Manager set the Standard scale 1 to 500. If this option is grayed out, uncheck Auto-recalculate scale (or set it to False) and then set the standard scale.

 

In Strater 1, this was not an option and so you need to calculate how many data units is 500" to set the scaling depth per inch.



If your data is in units of feet, then you can find out how many feet 500" is:
     equation1

 

So you would want to enter a Scaling Depth Per Inch of 41.67.

 

If your data is in units of meters, then:
     equation2

So you would want to enter a Scaling Depth Per Inch of 12.7.
