2.2.5 Property Kinds

Topic Version1Published09/11/2015
For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

RESQML includes a list of standard property names that represent the basis for the commonly used properties in the E&P subsurface workflow. Use of this list allows programmers implementing RESQML to map their software property names to the RESQML standard property software names, which makes it possible for RESQML-enabled software packages to translate property names between each other.

For example, if Software A names “porosity” as POR and Software B names it PORO, and both A and B are RESQML enabled, then the software can recognize that these properties are equivalent because they refer to the same RESQML parent property, e.g., "porosity". They can also exchange without ambiguity the numerical values that are recorded because those values will be in the same unit of measure.
