Points to Consider while buying Core Logging Software

Posted by on Oct 23, 2017 in Blog, News | Comments Off on Points to Consider while buying Core Logging Software

Points to Consider while buying Core Logging Software

Core logging has been traditionally done manually. While it has served its purpose for decades, manual core logging has failed to keep pace with the technological developments witnessed across mining, petroleum, and groundwater. It is time-consuming and requires extensive manpower for miles of core, and also presents problems in reporting, formatting, and record keeping.

Core logging software, such as CoreCAD™, addresses these drawbacks by dramatically improving productivity and allowing direct input of core descriptions into a digital interface, where the data can be analyzed, combined with other sources of data, and visually presented for reporting purposes.
