The procedures you will follow to create a point map will vary depending on whether you
have entered your data into the Borehole Manager or into the RockWare Utilities
datasheet (where you have X,Y locations, at minimum). Point maps are displayed in




! Use point maps as overlays over other 2D maps (isopachs, structural contours, etc.). Just
save the borehole location map in RockPlot2D, and you can then append this map to any
other 2D plan image in your project (RockPlot2D File/Append).

Borehole Manager: Map / Borehole Locations

Use the Borehole Manager's Map / Borehole Locations tool to create a 2-dimensional or
plan view of your borehole locations. These maps may include unique symbols and labels
for each borehole, with optional borehole trace plots for deviated holes, borders, and
bitmap backgrounds. You can request a grid model of the borehole surface elevations
(also read from the Location tabs) for display as line or color-filled contours with your
point map (see a later topic).

Notes: Check your coordinates: If your borehole locations (as entered into the Location
tabs) are not in Eastings and Northings, you’ll need to translate your longitude/latitude or
Range/Township/Section descriptions first.

RockWare Utilities: Map / EZ Map

The EZ-Map tool is used to build 2-dimensional (flat) maps for X, Y, and Z coordinate
data that can include several map layers. (Contour lines and color-filled contours are
optional. See also a later section regarding including contour lines.)

Notes: RockWorks can create maps with uniform or variable symbol styles, and with
uniform or variable symbol sizes. This can be handy for differentiating your sites, and/or
for illustrating different measured values at those sites. You can include single or multiple
labels for each symbol. The program can automatically offset labels if overprinting is a

RockWare Utilities: Map / Multivariate Maps

Th Map / Multivariate Maps tools are used to create maps that illustrate two or more
components at specific X,Y locations.

Pie chart maps illustrate the relative percentage of the selected variables as varying-width
pie "slices" at each sample location. Examples include whole-rock geochemistry, relative
sand/silt/clay ratios, and non-geological parameters such as population breakdowns.

Starburst maps illustrate the relative percentage of the selected variables as varying-
length pie "slices" at each sample location. Each component within a starburst has a
scaling factor that determines the radius of the wedge. This allows you to create diagrams
for variables with different units. For example, one wedge within a starburst could
represent amount of silica, which another could represent fracturing, which a third might
represent amount of alteration.

Bar chart maps illustrate the relative percentage of the selected variables as varying-
length histogram bars at each sample location.

Spider maps illustrate the relative percentage of the selected variables as polygons within
a circle, at each sample location.

Datasheet: RockWare Utilities “XYZ” file, with multiple Z-value columns (page 74)

Notes: Refer to the Help messages for details about how to set up the data columns and
apply a scaling multplier for the starburst and bar chart maps.
