Description WinFence can be used to graphically create detailed, full-color, cross-sections and fence diagrams. The program can be used to interpret and map soil and rock layers, contamination, fossils, minerals and hydrocarbons. The program can automatically generate cross-sections using artificial intelligence. When determining how to connect the strata between boreholes, wells, and intersecting cross-sections the program looks at the similarities in the lithologies, thicknesses, and occurrence of the strata. This methodology works well with most geologies; except, where the geology is very complicated or there are faults. After the cross-section had been created it can be displayed in 3D along with other cross-sections in the project as a fence diagram. Fence diagrams are used to depict the geology and stratigraphy of the subsurface in 3 dimensions. Typically, fence diagrams show several cross-sections that may intersect as well as boreholes and wells. The 3D fence diagram display can be panned, zoomed, and rotated. The position of the user and the light source can also be moved. A wide variety of strata can be used to create cross-sections including: layers, faults, lenses, intrusions, and alteration zones (mineralization, contamination, hydrocarbons). Detailed and complicated stratigraphy can be represented and drawn. Layers can contain multiple segments to represent uncomformities and erosion in faulted zones. A snapping approach can be used to add layer, alteration zone, intrusion, and lense boundaries. 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 format of the cross-section is controlled by a template, that can be edited and customized. It 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. All cross-section data for a project is stored in a Microsoft Access database.
