How can I group or classify my Strater wells for my map in the map view?

There are a few options for classifying/grouping wells in a map view.

Option 1: You can classify your wells by including a “Type” or “Keyword” column in the collars table.

  1. In the first empty column in the collars table, enter a name for each class of wells (for example, well type like “Abandoned”, “Oil with gas show”, and “Oil”).
  2. Right click on this column and click Create Scheme.
  3. In the New Scheme dialog, the Table Name and Column Name should be set automatically, and the Scheme Type should be Keyword. Set the Scheme Name and click OK.
  4. In the map view, click on the Wells 1 layer in the Object Manager.
  5. On the Wells page in the Property Manager, check the box next to Use keyword scheme for symbols and then set the Keyword scheme to the scheme you created in step 3 above.
  6. To edit the symbol properties in the scheme:
    1. Click Home | Display | Scheme Editor.
    2. Under the Keyword section, expand the scheme.
    3. Select each item in the scheme to view and change the properties.
    4. Click OK when finished editing to apply the changes to the map.


Option 2: Use a different collars table for each well group.

Another option is to separate the well information into multiple collars tables. Once you have multiple collars tables, you can add a second Wells layer to the map by clicking Map | Add | Well Layer and selecting the second collars table. You can turn the visibility of one Wells layer on or off, or adjust the symbol properties for each layer by 

  1. Selecting the well layer in the Object Manager.
  2. Unchecking the Use keyword scheme for symbols check box on the Wells page in the Property Manager.
  3. Changing the symbol properties on the Symbol page.

Note: If you choose this method, you cannot create a cross section from multiple collars tables.
