The WinFence version 3 cross-section extension module of StrataExplorer can be used to quickly create detailed full color cross-sections. This module is a major upgrade to our very popular WinFence program. The environmental version of this module has been specifically designed for the environmental industry.

A wide variety of strata can be used to create cross-sections. Depending on the industry, types of strata that can be used include layers, faults, lenses, intrusions, and alteration zones (mineralization, contamination, hydrocarbons, shear strength). Very detailed and complicated stratigraphy can be represented and easily drawn.

Industry Types

The types of data that can be displayed consists of a variety of common data and data that is specific to the industry. The chart below shows a comparison of the features for each industry.

Up to three columns can be displayed at the location of each borehole or well on the cross-section. The type of borehole or well data displayed in each column is specified in the style for the cross-section. The chart below shows a comparison of the types of boring and well data that can be displayed in each column in WinFence version 3 for each industry as well as the previous version 2 of WinFence.
