Importing Tobin WCS Data into the Borehole Manager
Borehole Manager | File | Import | Tobin WCS

This program is used to import data from a Tobin Well Coordinate Service (WCS) file into the RockWorks Borehole Manager. WCS files contain well location and other miscellaneous well information which is imported into the borehole Location tabs. Assigning well names can be based on several data fields, and well symbol is based on the listed well status (D&A, GAS, etc.). Well coordinates will be converted to the current project coordinate system.

  1. Open the project folder (if necessary) in which the boreholes are to be created.
  2. Access the Borehole Manager program tab.
  3. Choose the File | Import | Tobin WCS option.

    A separate borehole record will be created for each well referenced in the WCS file. The well name will be assigned the API number, plus any of the optional fields you selected. Well symbol is selected based on the associations listed in the Well Status Table. Additional well fields you've requested will be recorded in the Optional Fields section of the Location tabs, or in the Comments pane.

  6. Update Project Dimensions: You will be prompted whether you want to establish or update the Project Dimensions based on the imported data. Be sure to do so at some point before generating maps.
  7. Once the well information has been imported, you can use the Maps | Borehole Map program to create a map of the well locations.
