Handle units in Voxler

KB no longer maintained - Voxler is a retired product. Golden Software retired products are still supported, but no longer receive new features or updates. Many of Voxler's features are moving to Surfer . Please contact support@goldensoftware.com with any questions.

Voxler looks at units in the X, Y, and Z direction in a 1:1:1 ratio. This means no matter if your data is in latitude, longitude, feet, or meters, Voxler treats each unit as it if were the same. If your data uses a mix of units, this could result in an undesirable display.


To create meaningful models, I recommend converting all your data to one unit of measure. For example, if your well depths are measured in feet, but your well collars are measured in latitude and longitude, I recommend converting your latitude and longitude values to feet by converting to the State Plane coordinate system. If your depths are in meters, I recommend using UTM meters for your well collars data.


You can quickly and easily convert your latitude and longitude values to the coordinate system of your choice using Voxler's worksheet.
