Corporate Smalltalk Consulting Ltd has announced Well Logs 1.8.9 for iPad, an update to their unique app for the petroleum industry that enables viewing of extremely large Well and Mud Logs in either PDF or TIFF formats. Capable of displaying documents as big as 11 inches by 100 feet at 230 dpi, the app relies upon proprietary technology from its LargeViewer app to import, store, pre-render, tile, scale, and scroll very large images on any iOS device, there is no reliance on backend services or internet access required for viewing your well log.
Well Logs is the only iOS app on the market to have the capabilities to load and view oil & gas wireline well log TIFF and/or PDF images. With wireline well files up to dozens of feet long, most apps do not have the capacity to allow such images to load without crashing. Well Logs has made it a priority to specifically handle such unwieldy files. Of course, the advantages of viewing well logs that are 17 inches x 65 feet, or land maps that are 4 x 18 feet on an iPad rather than a paper document are significant. On-site viewing and discussion of paper documents no longer presents the inconvenience it once was, plus this reduces costs associated with the original printing process as paper and ink are costly items.
