Strater has 8 different types of internal data tables. Most log types can be created from depth or interval data, but here is a complete list of each log type and what table types can be used to create them:
Looking at the table above, you may notice a few things:
- There are no check marks in the Unregistered Raster Log row. This is because an unregistered raster log is just an image file. Once you depth-register the image within Strater and the registration information is written to an interval table, it becomes a registered raster log.
- There are no logs that can be created from a Collars table. The collars table contains information that pertains to the entire well, not just at certain depths or intervals down the well. This information may include easting, northing, and elevation of the top of the well, inclination and azimuth of the well (if there is just one value), and drilling date. This table is required for plotting well locations in a map view, and for creating cross sections. This information can also be displayed as linked text in the header or footer pane of a view.
- There are no logs that can be created from a Project Settings table. The project settings table contains information about the entire project, not about any one well. This information may include drilling company and name of the person compiling the report. Information in the project settings table is typically displayed as linked text in the header or footer pane of a view, or is not displayed at all, but just recorded within the project for note-keeping-purposes.
- There are no logs that can be created from a Survey table. Although no one log uses the survey table for plotting, it is used for all logs if the view is displaying true vertical depth rather than measured depth scaling. Additionally, this table is used for displaying deviation in the map and cross section views.
- There are no logs that can be created from a Text Item table. Text Item tables are similar to Project Setting tables in that they are intended for note-taking, but where project settings tables apply to the entire project, text item tables contain notes about specific depths of specific wells. This information can be displayed as linked text.
