User Interface (UI) enhancement
User experience within ODM has been improved with the launch of an updated user interface and enhancements to tool accessibility across the application. A range of new shortcuts have been introduced, streamlining workflows and increased flexibility enables the user to dictate display options in charts.
A new chart item, Heatmaps, can be used to display any numeric data, such as discrete sample data or log curve data. They use a colour gradient to represent numerical variation across selected data types for a particular well.
Analysis Sticks provide a graphical representation of the distribution of zones along a wellpath, displayed in order and in proportion to the zone thickness. They can be added directly to ODM maps with the appearance of simplified chart panels for a single data type.
The addition of an RPM extension to the 3D Viewer makes time-based data viewable in 3D and allows the user to roll time back and forth to examine dynamic behaviour.
A new method for handling core shifts can be associated with both discrete and curve data. Once an association has been made, the core shift is automatically applied wherever these data are displayed such as within charts, maps, and crossplots.
A new Dictionary Summary provides a powerful tool for managing dictionaries within ODM. It is a quick method of identifying which dictionaries are associated with a particular data type. It includes individual summaries for graphic and text dictionaries as well as those managed within Stratigraphic Schemes.
A new import tool for working directly with StrataBugs DEX files accompanies the additional ability to link to Stratabugs 2.0 databases.
