Seventh tutorial: Use Boreholes

What you will learn.

This is an extra tutorial just focused on boreholes. You will learn how to use the boreholes to interpret the geology in 2D and build geological models in 3D. A boreholes dataset is an excel file with collar, survey and interval sheets, but you can also upload them separately.

The following files have been used in this tutorial:

The collar file requires:

  • The coordinate x of the borehole location in the coordinates of the model.
  • The coordinate y of the borehole location in the coordinates of the model.
  • The elevation above the sea level z in the units of the model.

The survey file requires:

  • The azimuth of the measures taken of the borehole. If the borehole is just a vertical borehole, use 0.
  • The dip of the measures taken of the borehole. If the borehole is just a vertical borehole, use 90. Important: this measure is downhole.
  • The distance at the measure taken in the units of the model.

Finally the interval file requires:

  • The distance from of the interval.
  • The distance to of the interval.
  • Any interval data you want to use. Currently unit has meaning and gets the color from the geological unit. It also creates non existent units. Color has also meaning and can be used with an hexadecimal color code like #FF0000 (red).
