Data export into other programs

All the information that is entered via the input menu can be exported in a CSV format file which can be opened in a spreadsheet program. The data for each bed are presented as a row, with columns for each of the parameters entered for that bed (grain size, lithology, symbols and so on). Analysis of the data can then be carried out to determine patterns and trends in be bed thickness, grain size, facies, bioturbation intensity, etc. Palaeocurrent data are stored as comma-delimited strings that can be exported into rose diagram plotting programs. When data are stored as descriptive text macros can be used to convert the information into numerical values for the analysis of the proportions of lithologies, occurrence of sedimentary structures, fossils and so on. Geochemical or other analytical data may be incorporated with lithological information from the log. Data exported from SedLog can be imported into any program that uses ASCII format.

The graphic sediment logs generated by SedLog can be exported as PDF, SVG, or JPEG for use by other drawing applications or for publications.

To export a log as CSV, PDF, SVG or JPEG select Export from the File menu.
