WinLoG (Mining)
WinLoG (Mining)

The WinLoG extension module of StrataExplorer can be used to quickly and easily create, edit and print boring and well logs for a variety of industries. WinLoG is used by more than 3000 firms in more than 80 countries worldwide. The environmental version of this module has been specifically designed for the environmental industry with data types and columns tailored to this industry.

Each log can contain optional headers and footers and a large number of depth related column data. The types of columns available depend on the industry and can include lithologic descriptions and symbols, well data, sample and core data, geophysical data, lab data, etc. Numerous new types of columns have been added for this version to support specific industries. In addition, the units and type of data being input is stored in the database so that it can be used for later calculations.

Templates are used to control the layout and formatting of the log. In general, all of the logs for a project would use one or two templates to format the logs. In this way a consistent format can be established within a project and across projects. The module comes with more than 50 pre-designed templates depending upon the industry. In this latest version, the editing of templates has been significantly improved with features such as ruler bars, versioning, and drag and drop.

Each template consists of a header, footer, and several columns. Templates can be customized to display different header and footer titles, number and type of columns, and fonts. In addition, the size and location of the above can be easily changed using the mouse. A company logo or site map, stored as a bitmap can also be included in a template.

After the data for the boring and well data has been entered in this module it can be used to create cross-sections and contour maps in the other modules. In addition, the borings/wells can be displayed in 3D showing their lithologies and any deviated paths.

WinLoG can be used separately or in conjunction with WinLoG RT. To use it in conjunction with WinLoG RT the network version of WinLoG must be used. When using the network version of WinLoG/StrataExplorer, WinLoG RT can act as a remote data collection device for boring and well data. The data collected in the field can be sent to the network as an Electronic Data Exchange (EDI) file. In addition, boring and well creation tasks can be automatically sent to personnel using WinLoG RT.

WinLoG and WinLoG RT are used to improve and standardize environmental data collection, management, and reporting in an efficient and cost-effective manner. This is accomplished by implementing a documented, auditable process for the collection, storage, and reporting of boring and well data. WinLoG RT can be used as an entirely separate and independent program or in can be used in conjunction with the network version of StrataExplorer/WinLoG. When used with the network version, WinLoG RT can receive task notifications and exchange data with the StrataExplorer/WinLoG network.


This boring and well creation process can be divided into three stages. This process can be divided between WinLoG RT and StrataExplorer/WinLoG or accomplished by WinLoG RT alone.

1. Scheduling and planning

The first stage in any field program is the scheduling and planning of boring and well creation events. StrataExplorer/WinLoG allows project managers to design, delegate, and monitor these events. Notification of these events can be automatically sent to WinLoG RT as email or SMS (text) messages.

2. Data Collection

Detailed boring and well information can be recorded in the field on a Windows laptop or tablet using WinLoG RT. Boring and well data collected using WinLoG RT can be uploaded to the network main database remotely as an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) file. The remote uploading of data using an EDI provides for faster more comprehensive data reporting and reduces the possibility of transcription errors.

3. Reporting

Boring and well data can be reported on a variety of logs. These logs can be easily customized to meet internal and external needs. In addition, boring and well data is fully integrated and available for use by other modules within StrataExplorer.

Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) files are used to exchange data between the StrataExplorer/WinLoG and WinLoG RT. To use this feature of StrataExplorer/WinLoG, the network version must be installed and the StrataExplorer Network Service running.

All EDI files are stored in XML format and are transferred either by email or FTP. These EDI files are automatically imported by the receiving application when that application is started.

EDI Type



Boring/Well Task Data



Lookup List Data



Template Data



Project Data



Boring/Well Data



When using the network version of StrataExplorer/WinLoG, notifications can be sent throughout the work process. These notifications can only be setup in tasks and can only be used when tasks are used to control the work flow.



Boring/Well required


Boring/Well Completed


Boring/Well Received


Notifications can be sent via email, SMS (text message), or internally within the program. When being sent using email the email address specified for the personnel is used, If they are being notified using SMS the cell number and country code for the personnel is used. And if the method is internal notification, the personnel will be notified the next time they login to the StrataExplorer program.

The types of data that can be displayed in the boring and well logs consists of a variety of common data and data that is specific to the industry. To see a list and examples of data types for this industry click on the link below.
