Getting Started with Mapping

This guide will demonstrate how to create a new map and then add shape files, wells, production bubbles, and results to this map. We also explain how to the differences between the maps available in the petrophysics interpretation and the .map file type.

Sample Data

For this tutorial you will need well log, well header, production, and shape file data. You can download them using these links:

Step 1: Loading Data

To get started you will first need to upload some data to Danomics. In the video below we show how to upload well log, well header, well tops, production, and shapefile data.

Creating a New Map and Adding Shapefiles

In this video we explain the difference between the maps that are available in the petrophysics cpi and the map files. We then demonstrate how to make a new .map file and add shapefiles.

Adding Well Headers and Production

In this video we demonstrate how to add well headers to our map. We will then add production bubbles to our display as well.

Adding Grids and Points to Maps

In this video we demonstrate how to add the property grids from the petrophysics to a map file. We also demonstrate how to add a gridded property generated via a Flow in the .map file. We also show how to add points data (such as the map control points) to your .map file.

If you need help generating a grid via a Flow, please review this video from the Flows Welcome Guide.


Congratulations on completing the Welcome Guide for mapping in Danomics. Although there is significantly more functionality available, the knowledge taken from the videos above should provide you with the fundamentals needed to make meaningful map displays.
