Subsurface Analyst


Subsurface Analyst is compatible with:

  • ArcGIS Pro
  • ArcGIS Desktop

Create and visualize both 2D & 3D geologic models, starting with classification and visualization of borehole logs, creation and editing of cross sections, and generation of 3D geosections and geovolumes.

A number of easy to follow tutorials are available for Subsurface Analyst.

Create & Edit Cross Sections

Cross Section Editor

Interactive cross section editing of borehole data.

Include water table & saltwater interface and other geologic map data.

Cross Section Editor

2D Cross Sections can be converted to 3D Geosections and viewed in ArcScene (ArcGIS Desktop) or ArcGIS Pro.

3D Geosections can also be converted to 2D Cross Sections to edit and view in ArcMap (ArcGIS Desktop) or ArcGIS Pro.

Create XS2D Geophysical Plot Features

Add geophysical plots to 2D cross sections. This tool creates features representing geophysical data, such as points, lines and polygon plots, along with scale bars, for use in an XS2D map.

Create XS2D Geophysical Plot Features

Add Borehole Image Tool

Add Borehole Image Wizard

Add borehole images to cross sections. After selecting a particular well, run the tool to register the borehole image. When finished, view the registered image in the cross section data frame.

Generate 3D Geovolumes

Build 3D GeoVolumes from your subsurface data and visualize the new GeoVolume features in ArcScene (ArcGIS Desktop) or ArcGIS Pro.

Generate 3D geovolumes

Classify, Visualize & Edit Borehole Data

Import and store borehole data

Visualize, classify and edit borehole data such as stratigraphy, casing and screen intervals.

Geophysical Plot Tools - for ArcGIS Desktop

AHGW for ArcGIS Desktop includes geoprocessing tools for adding an XS2D display with multiple geophysical plots for a single well. Using a geophysical data table (such as one imported from a Log ASCII Standard file), multiple geophysical variables can be plotted alongside a well, with individual data scales (linear or logarithmic).

The Create Geophysical Plot Wizard can be used to create a new XS2D from a selected well.

ESRI's built-in tools may be used in ArcGIS Pro to make individual plot objects of geophysical data.
