cross-section and fence diagram







Version 5 of GaeaSynergy with the WinFence module has just been released. This new version has many new and enchanced features as well as new purchasing and subscription options. The upgrade is included in the annual maintenance and is free to users with a current annual maintenance agreement.

The WinFence cross-section extension module of GaeaSynergy can be used to quickly create detailed full color cross-sections. 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. Each industry version of this module has been specifically designed with data types and strata tailored to that industry.

This module shares the same database as the WinLoG module and can be used to access and plot the boring/well data. A wide variety of boring/well data can be plotted on the cross-sections; including lithologic symbols, sample symbols, core logs, well diagrams, graphs, and geophysical logs.

There is the option to have the program automatically generate the cross-section using artificial intelligence (AI) built-into the program. When determining how to connect the strata between boreholes, wells, and intersecting cross-sections the program looks at the similarities in the lithologies, thicknesses, and occurrence of the strata. This methodology works well with most geologies; except, where the geology is very complicated or there are faults.

A unique snapping approach can be used to add layer, alteration zone, intrusion, and lense boundaries. This approach allows the boundary of one strata to be fixed to the boundary of another strata. Making the input of strata boundaries quick and accurate. Boundaries can be partially drawn and partially snapped. Snapped boundaries can include one or more different strata. In addition to snapping, strata boundaries can be assigned to the strata above or below.

After the cross-section has been created, the strata boundaries can be used to create contour maps. In addition, the cross-sections can be displayed in 3D as fence diagrams.


Below is a list of some of these new features in version 5:

  • Licenses can be perpetual or subscription based.
  • Subscriptions can be annual or monthly and can be renewed manually or automatically.
  • Licenses can be purchased and registered in GaeaSynergy or the GaeaSynergy Network Monitor.
  • After purchase, licenses can be immediately added and used in GaeaSynergy.
  • Annual maintenance can be purchased and renewed as a subscription.
  • Industries no longer apply, this module now has the features of all the industries.
  • Projects can be archived and retrieved from archives. This allows for the easier selection of current projects.
  • Cross-sections can be created manually instead of using the project map by specifying the distances between the boreholes/wells.

Below is a list of some of the other features in WinFence:

  • EDMS sample and concentration data that is associated with a boring or well can be displayed on a cross-section at the location of the boring/well.
  • Strata in cross-sections can be automatically generated by the programs built-in intelligence.
  • Fence diagrams can be generated, displayed and printed in 3D.
  • Multiple water levels can be drawn on the cross-section. The water level can be drawn automatically using the water levels stored in WinLoG.
  • Grid nodes from contour maps are displayed on the cross-section and can be used to automatically adjust the strata boundaries.
  • Strata boundaries can be used to create contour maps in the extension contour module.
  • The automatic creation of cross-section strata has been improved with tighter links to the boring/well module.
  • Cross-sections can be included in page layouts for a project and shown either individually or as part of a montage.
  • Cross-section path line can be straight or bent.
  • Intersecting cross-sections can be displayed on a cross-section.
  • Intersecting cross-sections can be used when automatically generating a new cross-sections.
  • Cross-sections can use data entered in the boring/well extension module to show lithologies, graphs, geophysical logs, samples, and well details at borehole locations.
  • Strata from the boring/well extension module are automatically added to the cross-section.
  • Cross-sections can contain an unlimited number of layers, lenses, and intrusions.
  • Strata boundaries can be connected by straight lines or a curve can be fitted to the boundary.
  • Boundaries can be snapped to other layers or intrusions.
  • Points defining strata boundaries can be graphically edited and deleted.
  • Horizontal and vertical scales of the cross-section can be specified or automatically fitted by the program.
