To make life a little easier on you Danomics uses curve aliases. We have about 7500 different curve names aliased, which handles approximately 99.5% of cases that we encountered on a nearly 50,000 well data set.

Curve aliases allow you, for example, to call all your deep resistivity curves ResD instead of having to call them by their vendor names such as M2RX or AIT90 or the 500 other available names for deep resistivity curves. We know sometimes you want to know or use the actual name, and you can do that as well.

*Note: Curve names and aliases are NOT case sensitive.*

Note that for filtering by curve availability we have also set up some “aliases of aliases”. These are:

- dens_like: An alias of various types of density curves
- neutron_like: An alias of various types of neutron curves
- res_like: An alias of various types of resistivity curves

## Calculated Curve Names

These are the curve names that we show in the display tracks and use in our equations, on a module-by-module basis. This list is not exhaustive but includes the most used names.

**gr_norm: GR curve with/without normalization and compositing applied****sp_norm SP curve with/without normalization and compositing applied****rhob_norm: RhoB curve with/without normalization and compositing with unit scaling applied****nphi_norm: Nphi curve with/without normalization and compositing with unit scaling applied****resd_norm: deep resistivity curve with/without normalization and compositing applied****dt_norm: sonic curve with/without normalization and compositing with unit scaling applied.****pe_norm: pe curve with/without normalization and compositing applied**

*Note: compositing is the process of combining curves of the same type, but with different names into a single curve for later use.*

*Note: unit standardization is also performed so that curves of the same family but different type can be used on an apples to apples basis. For example, the density porosity curves are checked for percent vs. decimal and matrix type, and are then transformed into a bulk density.*

## Hints and Tips

You can find the curve names associated with a module by going to the CPI Config tab and selecting the relevant yaml file.

In most cases we only display the “final” curves (e.g., gr_final) as these will honor any selections you made on normalization and compositing.

If you want to see a full list of curves available, open up the export LAS dialog. That box will contain a full list of all the curves that have been calculated, even if they aren’t used in your workflow.
