Getting Started with Flows
In this guide we will explain what Flows are and how you can use them to enhance your workflows and accelerate your interpretations. We will cover some basic examples that we hope will provide you with the fundamentals of how to construct a Flow. Flows can be quite powerful, but as they are a new concept to most users, we anticipate you’ll need some support. Don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are five videos in this series and walking through all of them will take 30-45 minutes.
Note: We’ll be using the data from the Welcome Project. You can access that data here:
- Well log data
- Well header data
- Formation tops data
- Production data (CSV format / Excel format)
- Wyoming Counties Shapefile and Projection
- Wyoming Townships Shapefile and Projection
If you need help loading the data, please see the Welcome Guide on Data Loading video.
What are Flows?
Flows are collections of tools that allow you to read in data, process data using a number of specified steps, and return modified data. For example, you can use Flows to condition your well log data, generate grids for mapping, calculating petrophysical properties, or making reports on your data. In the video below we briefly introduce the concept of Flows.
Example Flow: Log Health Checks
In this video we demonstrate Danomics Log Health Check Flow tool, which analyzes your data for a number of common problems.
Example Flow: Log Data Clean-up
In this Flow we demonstrate how to perform a workflow for cleaning your log data.
Example Flow: Making Grids
In this example Flow we demonstrate how you can generate grids from your petrophysical interpretation.
Example Flow: Using Python in a Flow
In this Flow we demonstrate a basic Flow that utilizes Python. We first build a simple Python tool, then enhance its functionality, and then add a graphical user interface and distribute it across the company.
Congratulations on completing the Welcome Guide for Flows. At this point you should have a basic understanding of how to use Flows to perform a number of basic tasks. There are a vast number of actions that can be done with Flows, so if you need help understanding the full scope of what you can do, contact us at email@example.com.
