Rescaling X,Y Data Coordinates

RockWorks | Utilities | Coords | Rescale XY Data

This program is used to rescale X,Y location coordinates by a user-declared real number value. Coordinates may be rescaled differently in the X and the Y directions.

! This is a simple multiplier. See Converting Coordinates for coordinate reprojection tools.
! Coordinates should be rescaled with caution if you intend to perform area or volume computations.

Step-by-Step Summary

  1. Access the RockWorks Datasheet program tab.
  2. Create a new datasheet and enter or import the list of X and Y coordinates to be rescaled.
    Or, open one of the sample files and replace that data with your own. See Data Layout for datasheet examples.

    ! Click the Example button at the top of the window to load a sample file that is installed with the program.

  3. Choose the Utilities | Coords | Rescale XY Data menu option.
  4. Enter the requested program settings, described above.
  5. Click the Continue button to proceed.

The program will multiply the X and Y coordinates by the indicated scaling value, storing the new coordinates in the indicated columns.
