How should I organize my well data to import it into Voxler?

To display your wells and sample data with the WellRender module, you will import a combination of collars information (X, Y, Z location of the well tops), log data, and trajectory information. Voxler uses measured depth values to plot the wells, and you can either import your data as a single sheet with pre-computed down-the-hole X, Y, and Z values or as multiple sheets containing collars, trajectory, and sample data. Let’s take a closer look at both ways the data may be organized.


Multiple table approach with directions survey information

The first way that the trajectory information may be organized is using a collars table, directions survey table, and samples table. With this approach, each table is on its own sheet in a workbook or in separate files. To use this approach, the following data is required: 


Collars Table

Directions Survey Table

Log/Samples Data

Well ID/Name

Well ID/Name

Well ID/Name

Top Easting (X) Location

Measured Depth

Log/Sample Data

Top Northing (Y) Location


Measured Depth (or From and To columns)

Top Elevation (Z) Location



Total Measured Depth




The three sheets contained in the SampleWellData.xlsx file (located by default at C:\Program Files\Golden Software\Voxler 4\Samples) are an example of data organized in this way.
