Marker Beds for representing drilled
Formations encountered in the drilling well can
now be represented in the Survey plot of the Geosteering page.
Length and % Zone of wellbore inside the market bed is also
With the help Marked Beds, Geosteerer can quickly visualize
formations encountered in the drilling well and can also get the
length and % Zone of wellbore inside the drilled formations.

Formation Selection from User-defined Source
Formations that are selected from the LWD or
Type Log tab are fetched from the Source List that is created by
users in GeoGraphix.
This provides the user to limit the number of selected formations
according to the selected source list.
Selection of "Source List" from "Source
List" drop down in "Setup" page. LWD curve displaying formations
fetched from Selected Source list
Support for Z-Map+ Files
Z-Map+ files can be loaded and then displayed
on the GeoSteer page. This helps in displaying grids that are in
Z-Map+ format and are stored outside GeoGraphix.

tab and displayed on the "Survey" plot of "Geosteering"
Performance improvements and Usability
a) Performance Improvements on "Grid"
Significant performance improvements have been made in grid
loading operations. Also the workflow for managing large grids has
been improved. Grids with less than 2 million points can be loaded
without any errors. For grids exceeding this limit, a message
displays prompting the user to decrease the grid resolution. With
faster grid loading user can now easily load grids, calculate the
length and % Zone of drilled wellbore inside the grid and then
switch to Geosteer page for geosteering.
Length and % Zone calculated for
multiple grids which are also displayed in Survey plot of
b) Usability Enhancements on Loading and Saving
Measures have been taken to improve the saving and loading of big
geosteering sessions. A Progress Bar is now displayed to show the
status of saving or loading operation.
Now loading and saving of WebSteering interpretation is extremely
fast and any WebSteering interpretation can be loaded and saved
Progress bars showing the status of
Loading WebSteering interpretation.
Support for NAD27 US Survey Feet Projections
and additional Datum Transformations
GVERSE WebSteering now supports NAD27 Survey
Feet Projections. Moreover, Magna-Sirgus, WGS84, Egypt 1907 and NAD
(27) Michigan datum are also supported in WebSteering.
With the implementation of these new projections and datum
transformations, GeoGraphix projected created using these
projections and datums are now supported in WebSteering.
Additional Datum Transformations listed in
"Datum" drop down box of "Setup" page.
Improvements in Zooming Operations
Zooming In with Right mouse
To zoom into any graph, use your right mouse button to select the
area on the graph.Separate controls are now available for Zooming
In and modifying the dip of the segment. Now Zooming In Operation
is done with Right mouse button while segment correlation is done
with Left mouse button.

Automatic expansion of the graphs
for accommodating new survey or LWD data.
The Survey and LWD graphs expand automatically on importing more
data. Expansion of extents is based on MD values of the imported
survey or LWD data. With the implementation of automatic expansion,
the need to modify the extent every time when new survey is
imported has been minimized. Survey and LWD graphs automatically
expand according to the input data.

importing survey data.
Target Line Parameters
Parameters for target line can be editable by
entering the exact values on the Target Line Tool pop-up. When
these parameters are changed Target is adjusted automatically on
the graph according to the entered values.
Editable target line parameters provide additional controls for
defining the trajectory of the target line.
Editing of Inclination parameter for
modifying the trajectory of target line.
