Core Chopper

Turn boxed core images into depth-indexed image strips for import into your petrophysics program.

Core Chopper LogoA system of templates means that you can batch convert images (as long as they are all similarly aligned), saving hours of time.

The picture here shows a typical input photograph. The program will calculate the depths of each box section, remove the surrounding text, box features and scales, and write out six depth-indexed BMP or CGM images for import into another software package.

Many filename formats are supported:

  • dddd_d-dddd_d e.g. name_1000_0-1015_0.JPG, for a JPeg that covers 1000 to 1015 feet
  • dddd_dd-dddd_dd e.g. name_1000_00-1015_00.JPG, ditto
  • ddddd_d-ddddd_d e.g. name_01000_0-01015_0.JPG, ditto
  • ddddd_dd-ddddd_dd e.g. name_01000_00-01015_00.JPG, ditto
  • dddd.d-dddd.d e.g. name_1000.0-1015.0.JPG, ditto
  • dddd.dd-dddd.dd e.g. name_1000.00-1015.00.JPG, ditto
  • ddddd.d-ddddd.d e.g. name_01000.0-01015.0.JPG, ditto
  • ddddd.dd-ddddd.dd e.g. name_01000.00-01015.00.JPG, ditto

If any of these are used, then the depth ranges will be picked up automatically when the image is loaded

  • Horizontal images can be used.
  • Vertical splits can specified (this is useful for splitting a long scanned core report into manageable chunks)
  • You can save a session – including images, depths and any rectangles – at any point by choosing ‘Save session’.
  • Select ‘Load session’ to open a file selection window and resume your chosen session.
