Overview
This section provides information on starting Geolog, project management, and using the Launcher Bar.
See Using Geolog for assistance with navigating menus and dialog boxes, and using the mouse and
keyboard while working in Geolog.
Throughout the Geolog documentation, mouse button actions are provided for navigation and execution
instructions. See Keyboard Navigation on page 1-4 for information on navigating in Geolog Version 6.7
and higher using the keyboard.

Starting Geolog
On UNIX

Change directory to the project directory, if required.

Enter geolog6

Or

Enter the full path to the Geolog6 startup script; for example:
% <geolog6>/bin/geolog6

On Windows

Click on Start > (All) Programs > Geolog6 > Geolog6


(assuming the defaults have been used during installation).

NOTE On startup Geolog opens the previously opened project. If a project has not been previously
opened, the project dialog box is displayed.
The Geolog Launcher Bar is then displayed.

See Also
For a complete description of the Project Select dialog box components see "Project Select Dialog
Box" on page 1-8.
"Project Management" on page 1-5 which provides comprehensive information on creating and
opening projects in Geolog.

further information on specifying the project to be opened upon initial startup.

Starting Applications
To start a Geolog application

On the Geolog Launcher Bar:


Click the button for the required application.
OR
Select the Applications menu and choose from the displayed list.

Note that once a Geolog application has been started:


other applications (document views) can be opened within some of the applications using the

view and file); see Using Geolog for further information on opening multiple document
views within an application;
from within some applications, other Geolog applications can be started separately (e.g. in
Project, select Tools > Well... to start the Well application); see the documentation for the
application for further information.

Project Management
Project File Structure
A project groups related wells together so they can be managed and analyzed effectively. A project can also be
seen as a directory that contains log data, wells, plots, functions, reports, layouts, specifications and sections.
A number of current projects may be grouped as working projects, with each project typically identified using
names of basins, fields, authority permits, and so on.
When a new project is created, a project directory and the following subdirectories under the project directory
are created:

data data to load, unloaded well data, tape devices

layouts display specifications for data, xplots, frequencies

loglan loglan programs and executables, modules

plots CGM pictures, plotter devices

reports load, well, regression, etc. reports

specs load specifications, application parameters, etc.

wells loaded well data

Other directories for the project are created by Geolog as required (e.g., when you create and save a cross
section):

functions curves, macros, polygons

sections section display specifications

The following directories may be created, if required, but are generally used for the site project (see Project
Structure on page 3-3 for information on Geolog project types).

graphics patterns, fill, markers

app-defaults menu files

bin executables, environment specifications

New projects are created from the Geolog Launcher Bar. Existing projects can be opened from the Unix prompt
or the Geolog Launcher Bar.

Creating New Projects


To create a new project
1. If you have just started Geolog, click on the Cancel button in the Project Select dialog box (see
Fig. 1).
If Geolog is already running, from the Geolog Launcher Bar, select Project > New.
The New Project dialog box is then displayed.
2. Fill in the fields of the New Project dialog box as described in Table 1-1, "New Project Dialog Box
Components" on page 1-6.

Private and Public Projects


When using the New Project dialog box to create new projects:

if the Public radio button is selected, the project is available to all users of Geolog;

if the Private radio button is selected, the project is restricted (via the user ID) to the user who
created the project. Other users can be given access permission to private projects by modifying the
Study in the PNS Manager (Project Control) on page 4-13.

Opening Projects
A new project name and description (as well as all other data from the New Project dialog box) are stored in
the pns_<pns host name>.projects file, by default in the /PNS3TE/config directory. This file is used by
Geolog to display all projects available to the user, based upon filtering criteria, in the "Project Select Dialog
Box" on page 1-8.
All projects for your site should be listed for selection but note that directory and file read/write permissions
will affect your ability to open and/or make changes to projects.

To open a project
See Automatically Open Project on Startup on page 4-12 for information regarding setting
environment variables which enable a default project to be set prior to starting Geolog. This would
ensure that when Geolog is started, the default project is automatically opened. Otherwise:
1. Start Geolog, then select the required project from the Project Select Dialog Box.
Or
If Geolog is currently running, select Project > Open... from the menu on the Geolog Launcher
Bar to display the Project Select Dialog Box.
2. Select the required project using the fields and buttons as described in Table 1-2, "Project Select

Removing / Changing Projects


Before a project is removed or renamed it must first have its entry removed from the project registry.
The individual with the required permissions (usually the Systems or Project Administrator) can remove/
change projects as follows:

Remove the entry from the project registry (see "Deregistering Projects" on page 1-11).

Rename the project directory, or archive/delete the project directory and its subdirectories (see
"Project File Structure" on page 1-5).

Deregistering Projects
A user can deregister projects over which he/she has ownership. NOTE that deregistering a project DOES NOT
remove the project data/files - it only removes the project name from te Project Select Dialog box.
1. From the Geolog Launcher Bar, select Project > Deregister... to display the "Project Select Dialog
Box" on page 1-8.
2. Select "Mine" from the Owner dropdown list button.
3. Select the required project and click on OK to display the Deregister Project confirmation dialog
box.

4. Click on OK to confirm the process.

Displaying Project Information


From the Geolog Launcher Bar, select Project > Properties... to display information such as the full path
name, type of database and host name of the currently open project.

Changing Working Directories


If a project was created without a working directory, or if the working directory no longer exists, Geolog will
change to (or remain) in the current working directory.
To change the working directory

Select Project > Change Directory... from the Geolog Launcher Bar to open the Directory
Select dialog box.

Administration
Select the Administration menu on the Geolog Launcher Bar to perform Geolog licensing and project
administration tasks, to use the Configuration Editor on page 5-20 and to set the OpenWorks Interpreter.
See Licensing on page 6-1, PNS Manager (Project Control) on page 4-13 and Set Interpreter on page 2-52
for further information.

Set Epos User


This allows the user to run in either in EPOS3 or EPOS4 mode. Selecting "Use Epos User" runs in EPOS4
mode. See Set Epos User in the PNS User Guide for more information.
This setting has an affect on what is displayed in the Open and New dialogs. For example, a selected Epos user
is only applicable for certain hosts and therefore the "Hosts" within combo box will list only those hosts. Project
listing also updated to show relevant public/private EPOS3 or EPOS4 projects.
