Project Features

 

WinFence is based upon the project concept for data storage, where the user has numerous projects and within each project there are numerous cross-sections. Using this method, a Microsoft Access 2000 database is used to store each project. Each project is stored in a separate directory, which can be on the same computer or spread across a network. A master database is used to keep track of projects and their locations. This master project database is also used to store data (such as symbol libraries and strata) that is common to all projects and applications. In version 2, projects are displayed using a geographical information system (GIS). The GIS displays a project location map that can be used to display and edit boreholes and cross-sections. In addition, site features and AutoCAD files can also be displayed. The project location map can also be printed to be included with the cross-sections and fence diagrams.

 

The creation and editing of projects is supported by the following new features:

  • Geographic Information System for viewing project and selecting boreholes
  • A separate Location Map toolbar for editing the GIS
  • Databases can be automatically backed up and restored
  • Databases can be compressed and repaired
  • Projects can be password locked

The creation and editing of projects is supported by the following features:

  • Separate toolbar for project functions only
  • Projects are stored in Microsoft Access databases
  • No limit to the number of projects
  • New projects can be easily created. Projected directories are automatically created
  • Existing projects can be opened and closed using toolbar and menu commands
  • Projects can be deleted, including project directories
  • Projects can be imported from other computers
  • Projects can be exported to other computers

Cross-Section Features

 

 

  • Strata in cross-sections can be automatically generated by the programs built-in intelligence
  • No limit to the number of cross-sections in a project
  • Graphical Information System (GIS) for displaying and picking boreholes and cross-sections in WinLog with WinFence. GIS can also display site features and import AutoCAD files
  • Path line can be straight or bent
  • Intersecting cross-sections can be displayed on a cross-section
  • Intersecting cross-sections can be used when automatically generating a new cross-sections
  • Deviated boreholes can be displayed on a cross-section
  • Cross-sections can use data stored in WinLog database to show lithologies, graphs, geophysical logs, samples, and well details at borehole locations
  • Cross-sections can contain a title bar, legend, location map, and scale bar
  • Multiple water levels can be drawn on the cross-section. The first water level can be drawn automatically using the water levels stored in WinLog
  • Legend and title bar of the fence diagram can be fully customized
  • Title bar can contain any number and type of data
  • Legend can contain lithologic symbols with standard or custom lithology descriptions
  • New Quick strata toolbar makes editing strata much easier and quicker
  • Strata from WinLog project are automatically added to the program
  • Addition of new strata has been made simpler

 

  • The strata to be shown and order of the strata in the legend can be adjusted for each cross-section
  • Cross-section can contain a location map as an inset, showing the borehole locations and the pathline
  • Horizontal and vertical scales of the cross-section can be specified or automatically fitted by te program
  • Cross-sections can contain an unlimited number of boreholes and well logs
  • Cross-sections can contain an unlimited number of layers, lense, intrusions, faults, and alteration zones
  • Strata can contain descriptions that are shown in the legend
  • Strata boundaries can be connected by straight lines or a curve can be fitted to the boundary
  • Boundaries can be snapped to other layers, faults or intrusions
  • Layers can contain multiple segments and may be discontinuous
  • Points defining strata boundaries can be graphically edited and deleted
  • An unlimited number of lithologic symbols can be used to represent different strata, more than 100 are supplied with the program
  • The foreground and background colors of teh strata can be specified
  • The size of the strata symbol can be adjusted

 

  • Strata definitions can be contained in the project or in the master database
  • Cross-sections can be imported and exported using a text exchange format
  • Cross-sections can be exported to the Windows clipboard, a bitmap file, or a metafile
  • Standard Windows new, open, save, and print commands

Template Features

 

Templates are used to control the layout and formatting of cross-sections. In general, all of the cross-sections in a project would use one or two templates to format the them. In this way, a consistent format can be established within a project and across projects. Once a template is created it is available to all projects. WinFence comes with numerous easily customized templates, which can be edited and saved as new templates. You can also create a new template by specifying the desired layout. Each template consists of a cross-section area, title bar, legend, location map, and scale bar. Templates are stored in the WinFence master database. The format of the master database is Microsoft Access 2000. This database is stored in the Main Database Directory. The creation and editing of templates is supported by the following features (items in blue indicate new features):

 

  • An unlimited number of templates can be created
  • The page size of the templates can be any size supported by Windows
  • New templates can be created by specifying the layout and page setup
  • Intersecting cross-sections can be displayed on a cross-section
  • The location of the title bar, cross-section, legend, location map and scale bar can be positioned easily and accurately

 

  • Projects and templates can have passwords assigned to control usage
  • The number of columns of strata symbols and widths of the columns can be specified for the legend
  • Default strata to include in the legend can be specified in the template

Library Features

 

Libraries are used to store lithologic bitmaps that can be used for the strata symbols. Each library contains 18 bitmap symbols. WinFence comes with several previously defined libraries. In addition, any number of new libraries can be created, making the number of lithologic symbols available unlimited. When a legend is created the default description can be used for the symbol description of the legend. If this description is then edited in the legend, the new description will only appear in that legend. The new description in the legend will not replace the default description in the library. To change the default description the description must be changed in the library as discussed below. However, the actual symbols are the same in the legend as in the library and if edited in the library the symbols in the legend will change as well. Libraries are stored in the master project database so that they are accessible by all programs. The format of the master database is Microsoft Access. This database is stored in the Main Database Directory. The creation and editing of libraries is supported by the following features:

 

  • An unlimited number of symbol libraries can be created
  • Each library contains up to 18 symbols

 

  • Each symbol also has a default symbol description stored in the library, which is used when creating legends
  • Default symbol descriptions can contain rich text

 

  • Symbols can be edited and created within the program
  • Symbols can be imported from bitmap files
