The following is a list of the more significant changes and new features available in AHGW 3.4.

ArcGIS 10.5 Compatible

AHGW 3.4 now supports ESRI's release of ArcGIS 10.5

Geophysical Plot Tools

AHGW geophysical plot tool examples

AHGW now includes geoprocessing tools for adding an XS2D display with multiple geophysical plots for a single well. Using a geophysical data table (such as one imported from a Log ASCII Standard file), multiple geophysical variables can be plotted alongside a well, with individual data scales (linear or logarithmic).

The Create Geophysical Plot Wizard dialog can be used to create a new XS2D from a selected well.

Lithostratigraphic and Hydrostratigraphic Display

AHGW lithostratigraphic and hydrostratigraphic display examples

Lithostratigraphic and hydrostratigraphic units can be plotted next to the geophysical data. The lithostratigraphy and hydrostratigraphy features are created with a new geoprocessing tool, which can be automated as an optional step in the Create Geophysical Plot Wizard dialog.

3D Geophysical Log Plots

AHGW geophysical log plots examples

A new geoprocessing tool creates subsurface 3D geophysical features for a well based on data in a geophysical data table. Given a set of Well features, a geophysical depth field and a geophysical variable field, 3D (Z-enabled) features are created in a new feature class that is best viewed in ArcScene.

The size of the concentric circles representing the geophysical data varies by the values of the geophysical data, but can also be scaled in size based on user preference. The Extrusion layer properties in ArcScene can also be used to extrude the concentric circles between readings in the original geophysical log table. The proper extrusion value is calculated as one of the attribute fields in the output feature class created by the tool.

Lithological Description Tools

AHGW lithological description tool example

Geoprocessing tools for adding an XS2D display (typically in a new data frame) showing a detailed lithological description by depth. Using a table of lithological descriptions associated with a from depth and to depth, a new display can be created showing a detailed text description of the lithology of a borehole.

The Create Lithological Description Wizard dialog automates the process.
