Compute Other Coordinates from Collar Coordinates

Borehole Manager | Edit | Coordinate Converter From XY

Use this program to convert borehole Eastings and Northings (in the Location table's Collar Coordinates tab) to another coordinate system, for reference, in the Other Coordinate Projections tab. RockWorks will convert the coordinates based on the project's current coordinate system.

! This program offers an initial database backup, and the option to convert only the holes where the Other Coords fields are not set (e.g. values of "0").

     The From Easting/Northing button on the Other Coordinate Projections data tab for coordinate calculations for individual holes.

Step-by-Step Summary

  1. Access the Borehole Manager program tab.
  2. If necessary, disable any holes whose Other Coords values are not to be computed.
  3. Select the Edit | Coordinate Converter From XY menu option.
  4. Enter the requested menu options, described above.
  5. Click the Continue button to proceed.
  6. When prompted if you wish to first make a backup copy of the current database, choose Yes or No as you wish. (We recommend Yes.)
  7. If a backup was requested, RockWorks will notify you of the name and location of the backup archive - click OK to continue.

The program will read the selected Easting and Northing coordinates for the requested boreholes and translate them to the selected projection, recording the new values in the Other Coordinate Projections tab. It will display a window notifying you of the number of holes which were converted.
