Summary plots are displayed on screen by maximum four rows by four columns of plots. In the example above, ResInsight displays two columns and two rows of plots, each plot comprising a single curve. However, a plot may contain an arbitrary number of curves. As shown in the screenshot above, essential helpers for setup of Summary Plots are:
Essential actions are presented as controls in the toolbar to increase productivity and ease of use.
Creating a new summary plot of WBHP of Well B-1H and subsequent Drag & Drop of WGOR and WGORH into the same subplot produces the following. ResInsight will automatically make new axes if necessary. If units are the same as for WGOR and WGORH, a new axis is unnecessary.
The Data Sources window enables efficient creation of multiple plots and curves by Right-clicking:
If a plot contains curves pertinent to a single data source, you may easily append corresponding plots for other entries of the type by right-clicking or drag and drop. In the examples above, the curves are pertinent to the single data source well B-1H. Thus you may easily append corresponding plots for other wells by right-clicking as shown below.
Alternatively, you may simply and efficiently drag and drop the selected wells into the plot area. In fact, you may drag the entire folder into plot area to append plots for all wells.
Subsequently, you may:
The data source of displayed curves is rapidly changed by Summary Plot Source Stepping.
ResInsight may ease comparison of multiple summary curves by selecting a plot in Plots and using the settings in Property Editor group Axes.
The different options are:
You may simply double click a subplot to restore its default zoom level. Use toolbar button or View menu option Zoom All to restore default zoom level for the entire plot.
For scrolling multiple pages of plots by using the mouse wheel, disable Wheel Zoom by the toolbar button .
A summary curve is highlighted when left-clicked in a plot. This eases detailed investigation of a specific curve in plots comprising many curves.
Another essential feature is to left-click an axis in a summary plot which will highlight the curves corresponding to the particular axis. As exemplified below, clicking the axis Gas Production Total highlights the WGPT curve and dims the other curves.
Summary curves can also be activated and deactivated by clicking the check-boxes in Plots window. See also Plots right-click menu items, e.g. On - Others Off which is an effective way to deactivate all curves not selected.
An entire summary plot may be duplicated using the toolbar button Duplicate Plot.
Copy and Paste of a summary plot, subplot (see below) or curve is also possible using the Plots right-click menu and standard keyboard shortcuts (CTRL-C/CTRL-V). This enables pasting a subplot or curve to wherever desired in the the Plots tree.
Filtering of subplots allows the user to disable/hide subplots containing data below a user defined threshold. To activate filtering of subplots, click a plot in Plots window, set the Y-axis Threshold in Property Editor, and click Apply Filter.
A plot with many curves can easily be split into multiple subplots. Right-click a composite plot in Plots and select Split Into Single Curve Plots to split into subplots each comprising one curve.
Right-clicking a plot in Plots window and selecting Show Plot Data will open a window containing the plot data as text columns. The window displays plot data by day, week, month, quarter, half year and year.
The text content of this window is easy to copy and paste into Excel or other tools for further processing. It is also possible to save the text data to a file by the right-click command Export to File.
The settings of each plot are listed in the Plots window for overview and are controlled by its sub-items and the Property Editor.
By selecting a specific summary curve in the Plots window, its properties are displayed by the Property Editor.
The Property Editor organizes the available options into the following groups:
Other actions are available via right-click menu for selected curve. For instance, the Y-Axis for one or more curves can be switched for using the right-click command Switch Plot Axis.
Time axis properties are displayed by clicking the Time Axis subitem of a summary plot in Plots window.
The property groups are:
Y-axis properties are displayed by clicking one of the left/right axis subitems of a summary plot in Plots window.
The property groups are:
Right-clicking an existing summary plot in Plots and selecting Edit Summary Plot initiates the Summary Plot Editor which offers complete functionality to navigate and select vectors from all summary types.
