2012 Plan Plus Expert Software $2000
2012 Plan Plus Expert adds several advanced features which enhance the analysis of contour maps. Features available in Plan Plus include: importing or exporting lat/long or utm files, viewing contour maps in three-dimensions, computing drainage radii, analyzing volumes from structure maps, discretizing values from contours, more advanced methods for analyzing complex maps of multiple hills and valleys, create dxf graphics files, and printing or plotting maps in various scales.
2012 Plan Plus Expert can be used with a digitizing tablet to input the contour maps, OR the maps can be input from scanned images using Scanner Plan, OR the maps can be input from any on-screen image or map using On-Screen Plan. On-Screen Plan will work with almost any other software program. Display the contour on screen and planimeter the map using On-Screen Plan.
Plan Plus includes all of the functions of Plan, plus the following capabilities:
Besides the basic features of Plan, Plan Plus adds several advanced features which enhance the analysis of contour maps. Features available in Plan Plus include: viewing contour maps in three-dimensions, computing drainage radii, analyzing volumes from structure maps, discretizing values from contours, analyzing complex maps of multiple hills and valleys, and printing or plotting maps in various scales.
Viewing a map in three dimensions allows the user to visualize the characteristics of the reservoir. Plan Plus provides a rotation of the image so that the structure can be viewed from various angles. Well locations can be included on these displays.
Plan Plus provides a volumetric estimate of drainage radii dependent upon user input production and drainage shape. Drainage shape can be circular, square, elliptical, or rectangular. For ellipses, users specify the width to height ratio and the degree of tilt. Using this portion of Plan Plus, production can also be estimated from drainage shape and an input radius.
In Plan Plus, top of structure maps can be analyzed to calculate reservoir volumes. The bottom of a structure is defined by digitizing a bottom structure or isopach map, or by inputting the average thickness, and specifying the depths of fluid contacts. After computing the Isopach map and reservoir volume, the structure can be viewed in three-dimensions and a cross-section can be generated.
Often, contour values taken at discrete intervals are needed as input into simulators or other programs. In Plan Plus, users can define regular or irregular rectangular grids and place these over the displayed map. Values are then extrapolated at each grid value and saved in matrix form in an ASCII file.
Plan Plus computes map volume by both the Trapezoid method and Vertical Slice Method. Comparing results from these two methods aids users in checking that maps have been correctly defined. Plan Plus also includes extra algorithms on the Pyramid and Combination Methods to provide accurate results from maps with many hills and valleys.
Plan Plus allows users to print and plot many useful figures and graphs. Maps can be printed with user defined scales or be saved on the Windows Clipboard for easy importing into other programs.
Files can be saved in TLG format or as DXF files for use with programs such as AutoCAD. A Windows 95 version of Plan Plus is available and designed specifically to take advantage of Windows 95's 32-bit processing.
Plan Plus has been designed to offer map analysts a useful tool. On-line instructions and documentation provide help on using the program. Let Plan Plus help you analyze maps quickly and accurately.
