3.4.5 Geometry

Topic Version1Published09/11/2015
For StandardRESQML v2.0.1

Geometry is not an independent, top-level RESQML business object, which means that the points, lines, surfaces or volumes that may be described by RESQML cannot be transferred independently of one of the representations just described. With RESQML, you can define geometry in 2 main ways:

  • Explicitly, i.e., the explicit (X,Y,Z) coordinates of a point (This was the only option available in RESQML v1.1.).
  • Implicitly, which allows much more compact data transfer and provides more information about the underlying geometry of a grid, or wellbore trajectory, or fault (new for v2).

For more information on geometry, see 7 Geometry .
