Winfence - Fence Diagram, Fence Diagram Software


WinFence can be used to graphically create detailed, full-color, cross sections and fence diagrams quickly and easily. The program can be used to interpret and map soil and rock layers, contamination, fossils, minerals and hydrocarbons.

In version 1 of the program only cross sections can be created. The ability to generate fence diagrams will be added in version 2.

Cross sections are created by specifying the pathline on a location map. The location map shows all of the wells entered in WinLoG and any additional wells specified in WinFence. Pathlines can be straight or bent. The location map including the pathline can also be shown on the cross section.

A wide variety of strata can be used to create cross-sections using WinFence. Types of strata that can be used include layers, faults, lenses, intrusions, and alteration zones. Very detailed and complicated stratigraphy can be represented and easily drawn. Layers can contain multiple segments to represent unconformities and erosion in highly faulted zones.

A unique snapping approach can be used to add layer, alteration zone, intrusion, and lense boundaries. This approach allows the boundary of one strata to be fixed to the boundary of another strata, making the input of strata boundaries quick and accurate. Boundaries can be partially drawn and partially snapped. Snapped boundaries can include one or more different strata. In addition to snapping, strata boundaries can be assigned to the strata above or below.

The format of the cross section is controlled by a template that can be easily edited and customized. Templates are used to specify the format and position of the cross section, title bar, legend block, location map, and scale bar. Company logos, bitmaps, text paragraphs, lines, arrows and rectangles can also be added to templates. Once the template is created, it is available to all projects. WinFence comes with several previously created templates that can be further customized.

WinFence shares the same database as WinLoG and can be used to access and plot the borehole data entered in WinLoG. Several types of borehole data can be plotted on the cross sections including lithologic symbols, sample symbols, core logs, well diagrams, graphs, and geophysical logs. The actual borehole log data can be opened and edited in WinLoG by double-clicking on the borehole in WinFence.

All cross-section data for a project is stored in a Microsoft Access database. This database allows for the quick storage and retrieval of cross-section data and can be interfaced with a variety of other programs. There is no limit to the number of projects and cross sections that can be stored in the database. The database is set up to work across a network if desired, with each project stored in a separate directory.

A master project database is maintained by the program to track the status and locations of projects. This database contains the project number, name and directory location.

WinFence is compatible with Windows 95/98/2000 and NT and supports all the fonts, monitors, and printers available in Windows.
