Leapfrog Geothermal 3.8

Leapfrog Geothermal 3.8 is out now! This release builds on updates introduced in version 3.7 with new Wells and GIS functionality, improved usability enhancements, and further improvements to visualisation tools. This release also coincides with the release of our all new Central Portal with the Data Room.

WELLS & GIS FUNCTIONALITY

    • Wells: Negative value handling is now available on downhole well graphs.
    • GIS: Draped GIS objects are now organised according to the GIS object organisation.

USABILITY ENHANCEMENTS

    • Polylines: You can now hide polyline tangents while editing. Polyline points and ribbon size can be displayed in real-world or pixel units. The default is to display based on pixel size to assist with the polyline editing user experience.
    • Polar stereonets with equal area (Schmidt) or equal angle (Wulff) projections to analyse geotechnical trends.
    • Statistics are now available on all types of points.

VISUALISATION IMPROVEMENTS

    • Enjoy sharp clear 3D graphical display with high resolution and 4K monitors and laptops.
    • Export a saved scene from itself.

BETTER PERFORMANCE WITH CENTRAL UPLOADS

    • Avoid duplication and dramatically reduce upload time making it easier to publish to Central over poor network connections from remote sites.
    • Decreased storage requirements make the most efficient use of your server storage allocation.

ALL NEW CENTRAL PORTAL WITH DATA ROOM

    • Users and administrators see and manage all your Central projects from a web browser on any device.
    • The brand new Data Room in your Central projects enables you to upload, version and download data files from any source via the portal.
    • Apply Central’s single source of truth philosophy of best practise for management of all your geoscience or geospatial data files that aren’t already managed in other systems

EVALUATE A COMBINED MODEL ONTO A TOUGH2 FLOW MODEL

    • Create a TOUGH2 model with a combined model as the parent instead of a geological model.
    • Use the combined model to evaluate rock types onto the TOUGH2 flow model, with either a structured or unstructured grid. A typical use case is a combined model created from a geological model and one or more numeric models.
    • For a TOUGH2 model with an unstructured grid, the faults and wells gridding features are those associated with the geological model in the combined model.
    • Although there can only be one geological model in the combined model, there can be multiple numeric models, for example porosity, permeability and temperature.

GEO-REFERENCE AN IMPORTED TETRAD FLOW MODEL

  • Support for the import and visualisation of TETRAD IS and GV files was added in Leapfrog Geothermal 3.6. Now in 3.7:

    • The TETRAD model can be geo-referenced or translated and rotated to its correct position and orientation in the global coordinate system.
    • The y-axis can also be flipped, which is useful if the grid x, y axis orientation is different from the global x, y orientation.

DOWNHOLE WELL GRAPHS

    • Geophysics or other downhole numeric data, including interval, point and LAS data, can now be displayed in the 3D scene to quickly visualise your well data in 3D as a trace line or bar graph.
    • Interval numeric data is displayed as a bar graph, either with a single flat colour or using a colourmap. Minimum and maximum clamping values can be set, with the option to log transform the data. Scaling and offset slider bar controls improve viewing in the scene.
    • The single well graph can be rendered either to the left or right hand side of the well trace.

Improved 3D visualisation

  • SPLIT SCENE VIEW

    Visualise your 3D data from 1, 2 or 3 viewpoints and provide context and clarity when viewing a scene (especially useful when exploring your model close up).

    • Undock the slave scene to run it on a second monitor and control object visibility, scene slicing, zoom level and image rendering for even richer engagement.

    COLOURMAP IMPROVEMENTS

    • New colour gradient options replace the existing colour maps for better display of heatmaps, elevation, azimuth and geophysics data as well as diverging data and grayscales. Existing colour maps may still be used if preferred.
    • Discrete Colourmaps can now be easily created using various statistical methods for use with numerical interpolants.

CENTRAL model management support

  • Central now integrates with Geothermal 3.7 and improves model management capabilities with:

    • Publishing 2D Grids - Grids stored in both the GIS Data, Maps and Images folder and the Geophysical Data folder can now be published to Central. In the Browser, the grid will appear in the GIS Data and Images folder.
    • Fence and Serial Sections - can now be published to Central and viewed in the Central Browser.
    • Users can now define the location of the temporary publishing cache.
    • User interface improvements – A green bar monitors download progress of objects and sub objects such as textures.
