WinLoG can be used to quickly create, edit and print geotechnical, environmental, mining, water well, oil & gas, and transportation borehole logs. The graphical windows interface displays the log as it is changed and shows exactly how the log will look when it is printed. Borehole and well logs can be printed in black and white or color.
The geographical information system feature added in version 4 displays a location map for the project showing the boreholes, cross-sections, and any surface features. This feature makes it easy to visualize your project and can be used to print a location map of the project. To edit a borehole all you need to do is click on it in the location map.
There are no limits to the number and types of borehole logs that can be created with WinLoG. Logs can contain general borehole data (ex. location, client, project number); lithologic descriptions and symbols; sample data; well completion details; water level measurements; geophysical logs; and numerous graphs and text comments. Once a log is created it can be easily copied using a toolbar button, and then edited and saved to represent other boreholes on the same site.
Templates are used to control the layout and formatting of borehole logs. In general, all of the boreholes in a project would use one or two templates to format the logs. In this way a consistent format can be established within a project and across projects. Once a template is created it is available to all projects.
The program comes with several easily customized templates, which can be edited and saved as new templates. Each template consists of a header, footer, and several columns. Templates can be customized to display different header and footer titles, number and type of columns, and fonts. In addition, the size and location of the above can be easily changed using the mouse. A company logo or site map, stored as a bitmap can also be included in a template.
Legends can be created and customized to shown lithologic symbol, well symbol, and sample symbol definitions. These legends can then be printed for inclusion with the borehole logs.
Borehole log, template, and legend data is stored in Microsoft Access databases. By storing the data in Microsoft Access databases, the data can be easily extracted for use in other programs.
The program is designed around the project concept, where the user has numerous projects and within each project there are numerous borehole logs. Projects can be stored on one computer or numerous computers within a network. A master database is used to keep track of projects and their locations. A more detailed description of the database system is provided in the section
