[00:00:03.069]<v Mikayla>Good morning.</v>
[00:00:04.260]Welcome to today’s webinar,
[00:00:06.230]Leapfrog Works: The Future of 3D
[00:00:08.320]Visualization and Communication.
[00:00:11.539]I would now like to introduce Gary Johnson,
[00:00:14.560]sequence customer solutions specialist
[00:00:16.610]and your main technical support resource.
[00:00:19.560]Gary is located in our office in Broomfield, Colorado
[00:00:22.440]and has a geology background.
[00:00:26.376]<v Gary>Thank you, Mikayla.</v>
[00:00:28.660]For today’s webinar,
[00:00:30.290]I’ll be giving you guys a rundown of the future
[00:00:33.360]of 3D visualization and communication.
[00:00:36.410]The first thing that I’ll be touching on
[00:00:37.870]is the key to keeping stakeholders engaged,
[00:00:41.010]and we all know that that is very important to any project
[00:00:44.670]and any project’s life cycle
[00:00:46.450]is keeping stakeholders and other colleagues
[00:00:49.210]involved in the project
[00:00:50.430]engaged on what is going on and up to date.
[00:00:53.180]I’ll also be touching on how Leapfrog Works
[00:00:56.580]enables you to keep all of your data in one single place.
[00:01:01.000]We will then show you some 3D visualization
[00:01:03.250]and modeling tools in Leapfrog,
[00:01:05.440]and also go over some 3D presentation
[00:01:07.840]and communication tools and leave some time
[00:01:10.060]for Q and A at the end.
[00:01:14.760]So our vision, our vision at Seequent
[00:01:17.510]is to enable you to make better decisions about the earth,
[00:01:20.330]environment, and energy challenges
[00:01:22.640]through our solution ecosystem.
[00:01:28.390]How are we going to do this?
[00:01:30.180]We want to enable you to be the most productive as possible.
[00:01:35.000]Especially in the civil and environmental realm,
[00:01:36.900]we know that it is very important
[00:01:38.580]to make the most of your time.
[00:01:40.260]And so we want to enable you to make fast
[00:01:43.260]and dynamic 3D models
[00:01:45.010]that are going to be dynamically linked
[00:01:47.260]so that they can save you a ton of time,
[00:01:49.190]and I’ll go over that a little bit.
[00:01:51.210]We want to enable you to make very fast cross sections
[00:01:54.920]and identify challenges early
[00:01:57.040]before the design or in the design phase
[00:01:59.470]before you actually get to the construction phase.
[00:02:06.010]One of the key things that Seequent is about
[00:02:09.210]is about enabling collaboration
[00:02:11.280]and improving collaboration among teams.
[00:02:14.210]So one very common thing in a project’s life cycle
[00:02:17.870]is that you might be collaborating among a BIM team
[00:02:21.860]and a team of geologists,
[00:02:23.990]and then also a team of design specialists.
[00:02:26.960]And so how can you bring in that BIM data, that GIS data,
[00:02:30.920]that subsurface data all together into a unified model
[00:02:35.460]and enable communication and collaboration
[00:02:37.820]among all of those teams?
[00:02:41.160]Our solution to that is enabling better communication,
[00:02:46.620]and one of our tools to better enable teams
[00:02:50.280]to collaborate is enabling better communication.
[00:02:53.720]And this is being able to see in 3D, communicate in 3D,
[00:02:58.530]and offer new level of understanding
[00:03:00.640]that previously wasn’t available.
[00:03:03.270]One of the things about enabling better communication
[00:03:06.130]into our industry is the importance of having everyone
[00:03:10.500]up to date on the latest information and what is going on
[00:03:13.540]in the life cycle of a project.
[00:03:16.360]This is very important,
[00:03:17.550]and we’ll show you how we improve communication
[00:03:21.000]in a little bit.
[00:03:25.320]So how do we solve our vision,
[00:03:27.640]and how do we provide you with this solution?
[00:03:29.600]We have a solution ecosystem.
[00:03:33.310]And so our solution ecosystem ranges
[00:03:36.350]from technical to non-technical.
[00:03:39.430]One of the biggest challenges that organizations face today
[00:03:42.010]is the need to act quickly and make robust decisions
[00:03:44.670]for an entire company based on a complete understanding
[00:03:47.900]of all of the information involved.
[00:03:50.340]How do we effectively communicate these ideas
[00:03:52.690]across different sectors, AKA non-technical
[00:03:55.530]and technical folks?
[00:03:57.930]And how do we establish a continuous flow of communication
[00:04:01.200]that benefits the entirety of the organization
[00:04:04.370]and not just those technical folks
[00:04:06.210]who might be building the model?
[00:04:09.260]The first solution I will be showing you
[00:04:11.130]is going to be View.
[00:04:12.768]View as a great communication and storytelling tool.
[00:04:16.010]This can be shared with anyone.
[00:04:17.660]This is also free,
[00:04:19.210]and you can actually share it with a link in email,
[00:04:22.420]and now publicly embed these on a webpage as well.
[00:04:26.550]I will also be showing you our model management
[00:04:29.270]and collaboration tool, which is Seequent Central.
[00:04:32.400]Central is great for data management,
[00:04:34.810]tracking a project history and changes made,
[00:04:37.790]and it is also great for QA/QC process
[00:04:40.690]as you can keep track of a project’s lifetime,
[00:04:44.170]and it’s great for auditability processes as well.
[00:04:48.140]Leapfrog, which you may or may not be familiar with,
[00:04:50.560]is where you’re actually going to be importing your data
[00:04:53.320]and building your geologic models.
[00:04:56.280]Leapfrog is going to be a dynamic ecosystem,
[00:04:59.540]and we’re about to hop into that in a little bit.
[00:05:03.300]Leapfrog is likely going to be used by your technical folks.
[00:05:06.030]So your geologic modelers, your geotechnical engineers,
[00:05:09.720]and your contaminant modeling folks
[00:05:12.120]in the environmental industry.
[00:05:14.760]So this is Leapfrog View.
[00:05:17.850]As you can see, one of the really cool things about View
[00:05:20.730]is that is actually just a website.
[00:05:23.270]So this is a cloud-based website
[00:05:26.500]where you can open upload your projects
[00:05:29.510]and share them with colleagues,
[00:05:31.420]stakeholders, clients, anyone actually in the world
[00:05:35.540]that can actually share this
[00:05:37.785]with someone who doesn’t have a Leapfrog account
[00:05:40.880]or doesn’t have any technical experience at all.
[00:05:46.100]And why I like to start with Leapfrog View
[00:05:48.950]is because this is all about storytelling
[00:05:51.480]and 3D visualization and communication.
[00:05:54.000]And so during a project,
[00:05:55.340]you might not necessarily be zipping up a zipped copy
[00:05:57.830]of your model and sharing that with someone.
[00:06:00.010]You might just want to offer them a perspective
[00:06:02.070]as to where you are and/or tell them a little story
[00:06:05.540]about where you are in your project.
[00:06:08.120]And so View enables you to upload a scene,
[00:06:11.390]a 3D scene that you can see you can interact with in 3D
[00:06:15.196]with anyone and it keeps them up to date.
[00:06:20.020]The nice thing about View is that enables you
[00:06:22.330]to create slides.
[00:06:23.320]So you can actually build a slideshow
[00:06:26.460]of different perspectives of the model
[00:06:28.540]where you can draw notes and give feedback.
[00:06:31.980]And so I’m just going to slide through a few slides
[00:06:34.950]that I have made here.
[00:06:36.350]Here, I have a slide that shows the slicing tool.
[00:06:38.670]So one of the tools in Leapfrog is the slicing tool,
[00:06:41.210]which you also have access to in View.
[00:06:44.390]So you can actually slide through the model
[00:06:47.526]and see the different aspects of the model.
[00:06:49.810]Here, we just have the geologic model uploaded,
[00:06:52.790]and you can see that there’s also a tunnel design included.
[00:06:56.950]This specific project is going to be a tunnel
[00:06:59.770]under a seaway.
[00:07:01.800]If you wanted to step through,
[00:07:02.870]you can take them through and show them a brief story
[00:07:05.180]of the project.
[00:07:07.108]Herr, we have the water turned off
[00:07:08.300]so you can see just the geology.
[00:07:11.795]Here, you can see just the boreholes and the tunnel design.
[00:07:16.410]I’ve actually added some feedback on the slide,
[00:07:18.690]which I can have somebody else come in and add feedback
[00:07:21.080]that I think I recommend more drilling
[00:07:22.610]on the western flank of this project
[00:07:25.060]around the western entry of the tunnel.
[00:07:28.170]So also happens to be where the granite diorite body is,
[00:07:31.360]and so I think there might be
[00:07:32.730]some more investigations needed.
[00:07:35.400]But if I got to a stage where I wanted to go ahead
[00:07:37.570]and share this View with a client or with a colleague,
[00:07:40.296]I can go up here in the top right,
[00:07:42.373]and I can share this with a collaborator via an email,
[00:07:46.720]and I can allow them to either just view it
[00:07:48.600]or also be an editor and give feedback
[00:07:50.720]and create their own slides.
[00:07:52.730]You can then control their permissions
[00:07:54.470]and remove them at any time from this.
[00:07:57.006]You can also share just a link,
[00:07:59.803]which can be public or private.
[00:08:03.180]And you can also publicly embed these Views,
[00:08:05.680]which might be great for marketing purposes
[00:08:07.520]or if you’re just trying to show off your work,
[00:08:09.790]you might also have to make it publicly available
[00:08:11.780]at the end of its life cycle.
[00:08:15.320]So I think that that is all
[00:08:18.920]that I’m going to show now for View.
[00:08:21.160]It is a very cool tool.
[00:08:22.970]It allows you to interact with your projects in 3D
[00:08:25.770]without having access to Leapfrog.
[00:08:27.810]This is also free, so anyone can access it in the world.
[00:08:34.880]I’m now going to jump into Leapfrog Works where this project
[00:08:38.300]and this geologic model was actually created.
[00:08:43.532]Some of you might be very new to Leapfrog,
[00:08:46.480]and so I’m going to show you the user interface here
[00:08:49.370]and give you just a brief rundown.
[00:08:50.960]On the left, we have our project tree
[00:08:52.740]where you’re going to be importing all of your data
[00:08:54.690]and building of your models.
[00:08:56.640]Our project tree was built with an intuitive approach.
[00:09:01.250]It was built by geologists with geologists in mind.
[00:09:04.800]And so it’s supposed to match your workflow.
[00:09:07.610]And so, at the top, we have our topographies folder,
[00:09:10.230]GIS data, boreholes, maps, designs.
[00:09:14.120]This is where you’re going to be importing all of your data.
[00:09:16.250]It’s supposed to be a top-down approach.
[00:09:18.000]And then at the bottom,
[00:09:19.440]you’ll see this is where you’re actually building
[00:09:21.130]your geologic and numeric models,
[00:09:23.320]cross sections, and other presentation formats
[00:09:26.480]that we will get to.
[00:09:28.890]One of the really cool things about Leapfrog
[00:09:31.000]is that it does allow you to have all of your data
[00:09:34.130]in a single place.
[00:09:36.630]And so I think it’s important to point out
[00:09:38.940]that Leapfrog is a geologic modeling tool,
[00:09:41.700]but it’s not always going to be used
[00:09:43.590]to build geologic models.
[00:09:44.830]You might just want to visualize
[00:09:46.120]all of your existing data for a project,
[00:09:48.370]whether you’re bringing in a topography
[00:09:51.130]or just some borehole data and some GIS data,
[00:09:54.050]or maybe even some existing cross sections.
[00:09:57.230]You can also now bring in your alignments as well.
[00:09:59.580]So if you want to see where you are along in alignment,
[00:10:02.740]this can be done.
[00:10:05.800]Now that you have all of this data in a single place,
[00:10:09.600]you can also use all of it and apply all of that
[00:10:12.600]to your geologic models.
[00:10:15.200]In Leapfrog, you can build geologic models
[00:10:17.600]from borehole contexts,
[00:10:19.750]but you can also build geologic models from points,
[00:10:22.850]from GIS data, and from manually drawn lines
[00:10:25.940]and a variety of other data inputs as well.
[00:10:28.640]But the cool thing is, once you build a surface
[00:10:31.440]off of one of these inputs,
[00:10:33.260]so if you build a surface purely off of boreholes,
[00:10:36.280]you can then go in and apply any other data type
[00:10:38.980]to that surface to conform it to how you know it to be
[00:10:42.340]in geologic reality or in the real world.
[00:10:46.229]So you do have that auditability to actually go in
[00:10:49.730]and control your surfaces, which is really nice.
[00:10:54.400]It’s very easy to interact with your models
[00:10:58.118]or with anything in the 3D scene.
[00:11:02.260]And you do have a ton of different visualization controls
[00:11:06.380]over what you’re seeing.
[00:11:07.550]So down here, we have our shapeless,
[00:11:10.330]which is listing everything
[00:11:11.400]that is displayed up here in the scene.
[00:11:13.610]If you’re ever wondering what is in the scene,
[00:11:15.560]you can actually just click on an object
[00:11:17.610]and it’ll tell you exactly what that is.
[00:11:25.830]So maybe just a brief rundown of all of the, you know,
[00:11:28.470]some of the different things that you can incorporate
[00:11:30.520]into a model that you might not be aware of.
[00:11:35.010]You can also import geophysical data,
[00:11:37.280]but you can import structural data.
[00:11:38.620]I think this is one
[00:11:39.494]of the really cool things about Leapfrog.
[00:11:41.660]I think there’s a lot of really cool things about Leapfrog,
[00:11:43.830]but the fact that you can incorporate structural data
[00:11:47.070]into a project is really nice
[00:11:48.750]because you might just have field survey data
[00:11:50.810]or you might just have structural mapping data onsite,
[00:11:54.350]which you can actually use to incorporate into your models
[00:11:57.300]and build a very complex structural model of your site.
[00:12:03.160]Of course, now that you have everything in 3D space,
[00:12:06.450]you might have to share this back with somebody
[00:12:08.740]who might not be familiar with 3D outputs and 3D modeling.
[00:12:13.780]And so of course, there’s very traditional 2D outputs,
[00:12:16.660]such as cross sections and images.
[00:12:20.280]Leapfrog allows you to very quickly and rapidly
[00:12:24.080]build the cross sections that are than dynamically linked
[00:12:27.480]back to your geologic model.
[00:12:29.760]And so here we have a cross section
[00:12:31.950]that was built within Leapfrog from this geologic model.
[00:12:35.110]And so, just going to use the slicing tool to cut across,
[00:12:39.100]and then I can also turn this geologic model off
[00:12:42.660]so you can see just the cross section that was built here.
[00:12:45.904]Leapfrog does allow you to build these cross sections
[00:12:49.271]within a minute, even less sometimes.
[00:12:52.920]And the nice thing is then once you make any updates
[00:12:55.220]to that geologic model, they’re automatically updated here
[00:12:57.840]so you don’t have to go in and redraw any lines.
[00:13:01.720]It is going to be auto updated.
[00:13:05.100]If you don’t want to wait for these objects objects
[00:13:07.740]to update when you make any changes to your model,
[00:13:11.030]you can also now freeze and unfreeze objects in Leapfrog
[00:13:14.520]by right clicking on your cross sections
[00:13:16.670]and selecting the option to freeze.
[00:13:18.910]So here, we have our section layout,
[00:13:20.640]which we can here freeze.
[00:13:22.920]So that is an option with Leapfrog Works 3.0,
[00:13:27.960]which is quite new and a nice option.
[00:13:32.980]You can also create movies.
[00:13:35.300]And as you’ve seen here,
[00:13:36.960]save scenes and render images of objects.
[00:13:40.310]So if you have any other questions
[00:13:41.840]about presentation formats, definitely let us know.
[00:13:47.060]If we got to a point where we wanted to revert back to View,
[00:13:50.600]which was the first solution we showed you,
[00:13:53.040]and we wanted to share, for example,
[00:13:54.770]this perspective here of a tunnel design
[00:13:57.340]and our geologic model with our clients
[00:13:59.790]or colleagues or stakeholders,
[00:14:01.960]up in the top right, you can always upload to View.
[00:14:05.300]You can give it a title and a description,
[00:14:07.350]choose which objects that are in the scene
[00:14:09.980]that you want to upload and upload that.
[00:14:14.500]It’ll actually go directly to your View dashboard,
[00:14:17.460]which we were looking at previously.
[00:14:19.330]And you could then go in and share that via an email
[00:14:22.100]or via a link, or also publicly embed that.
[00:14:28.190]So there are tons of ways
[00:14:29.710]that you can share this information,
[00:14:32.290]share this data, and keep people informed
[00:14:34.510]throughout a project’s life cycle.
[00:14:38.680]The next solution that I want to show you
[00:14:41.370]is going to be Central,
[00:14:42.790]which is our project collaboration
[00:14:45.470]and model management solution.
[00:14:47.940]Central is, I think, key to all project workflows
[00:14:52.700]and could be utilized in all projects
[00:14:55.860]and all project life cycles.
[00:14:58.510]You can see at the top in my Leapfrog interface
[00:15:01.390]that I have this Central projects tab.
[00:15:04.250]You may or may not have access to this.
[00:15:06.660]If you don’t have Central,
[00:15:07.730]then you probably don’t have this activated.
[00:15:10.790]What this is is a cloud-based server,
[00:15:13.040]which allows me to upload my projects
[00:15:15.640]and work on them with colleagues
[00:15:17.436]that it could be around the world,
[00:15:19.720]or they could be in my office as well,
[00:15:22.220]but it allows us to collaborate on products.
[00:15:24.560]And so, you know, I have a bunch of internal servers here,
[00:15:28.020]which I am on with a bunch of other colleagues of mine.
[00:15:32.100]And I have some projects here that we all have access to
[00:15:34.930]or we could control who has access to what.
[00:15:37.788]The actual project that I’m going to go into
[00:15:39.920]is going to be the Wolfpass project.
[00:15:42.910]So I’m going to open that up.
[00:15:45.600]And so, Central allows you to have an auditable history
[00:15:48.990]of your project.
[00:15:50.790]It also allows you to have multiple versions
[00:15:53.680]of a project’s history that are tracked over time.
[00:15:56.700]And it’ll also identify what user has updated this project
[00:16:00.700]and maybe a comment of what they changed.
[00:16:06.033]And one of the really cool things
[00:16:08.120]is that you also have access to comments and annotations
[00:16:13.070]and attachments of this project.
[00:16:19.329]this is kind of funny, Jacob, what were you thinking?
[00:16:23.570]That is pretty funny.
[00:16:25.720]You can actually come in here and audit or edit
[00:16:28.900]and review and give feedback on somebody’s project.
[00:16:33.530]One of the things that you might’ve heard us say in the past
[00:16:35.580]is that we always recommend working off a local drive
[00:16:38.090]so that you don’t interrupt the project
[00:16:40.480]while you’re working on it.
[00:16:44.010]One of the nice things about Central
[00:16:45.440]is that it allows you to have many, many, many versions
[00:16:49.020]of a project and stored on a cloud environment.
[00:16:53.410]And you can only have, for example,
[00:16:54.800]a single version of that project
[00:16:57.140]downloaded on your local drive.
[00:16:59.010]And so a lot of times these models,
[00:17:01.330]as you’re going through and saving copies
[00:17:03.330]to preserve the history of that project,
[00:17:05.860]might take up a ton of room on your local drive.
[00:17:09.990]And so this allows you to store it in the cloud
[00:17:12.580]and not take up that space on your hard drive
[00:17:15.340]and download a copy.
[00:17:16.840]So for example, if I wanted to download this copy from 2014,
[00:17:20.360]I could come in here and do so.
[00:17:22.160]So that is one of the really nice things about Central.
[00:17:25.959]I personally think everyone should have Central
[00:17:28.510]because it will improve your workflow
[00:17:30.740]and allow you to track your project’s history through time
[00:17:34.100]without saving a bunch of zip copies.
[00:17:37.670]<v Mikayla>Thanks, Gary.</v>
[00:17:38.750]All right, now we’re going to take a look at the questions
[00:17:41.190]that were submitted.
[00:17:42.310]One of the first questions that have come in is,
[00:17:46.030]what if I wanted to test out Leapfrog for myself
[00:17:51.580]and my company’s never used it before?
[00:17:55.923]<v Gary>That is a great question.</v>
[00:17:57.840]So we actually do have a free trial,
[00:18:01.690]a free two week trial.
[00:18:03.180]If your company and you have never used Leapfrog before,
[00:18:05.700]definitely let us know
[00:18:06.710]if that’s something you’re interested in.
[00:18:08.420]I’m actually going to throw up our contact information
[00:18:12.350]just briefly, so if anyone out there is thinking
[00:18:15.620]of a free trial, definitely let us know
[00:18:17.260]and don’t hesitate to reach out.
[00:18:19.535]We do have a free 14 day trial.
[00:18:27.338]Another question, how long does it take
[00:18:31.580]to make cross sections?
[00:18:34.376]<v Gary>That is a really good question</v>
[00:18:36.620]and something that I can actually demo live very quickly.
[00:18:41.107]You know, if you ever wanted to make a cross section,
[00:18:43.980]there’s quite a few cross section options in Leapfrog.
[00:18:46.765]You can actually make planar cross sections.
[00:18:49.620]You can make cross sections that are along an alignment.
[00:18:52.040]So for example, maybe along a GIS line
[00:18:54.420]or along the alignment
[00:18:56.930]of some kind of chainage that you have.
[00:18:59.410]You can also make serial sections,
[00:19:00.930]which are parallel cross sections.
[00:19:04.260]And then an alignment serial section,
[00:19:06.370]which is going to be parallel cross sections
[00:19:09.440]that are perpendicular to an alignment.
[00:19:12.290]So quite a few different options here for cross sections.
[00:19:15.570]Just to show you real quickly how long this actually takes,
[00:19:19.267]I’m going to go ahead and select the option
[00:19:22.150]to make a new cross section.
[00:19:24.750]Maybe something to point out here
[00:19:25.680]is you can also import existing cross sections
[00:19:29.230]and use them to build models.
[00:19:30.650]So if you have any existing or old cross sections,
[00:19:33.750]whether they’re geo-referenced or not geo-referenced yet,
[00:19:36.360]you can bring them into Leapfrog.
[00:19:38.670]I’m going to go ahead and make a new cross section now though.
[00:19:43.490]You can see down here that
[00:19:46.880]it is asked me where I want to make this cross section.
[00:19:49.440]So I’m going to go ahead and I’m going to make it,
[00:19:52.470]I’m going to put it in a different spot
[00:19:53.880]than this slicing plane,
[00:19:54.990]so I’m going to turn the slicer off.
[00:19:57.220]I’m going to go back and go new cross section.
[00:19:59.930]You can see that it’s giving me a cross section
[00:20:01.820]with an F on one side and a B on the other.
[00:20:04.300]That’s going to correspond to the front
[00:20:05.700]and the back of that cross section.
[00:20:07.890]I’m going to accept the default location
[00:20:09.820]and go ahead and press okay.
[00:20:13.240]You can see that we now have a cross section generated,
[00:20:16.930]but this cross section doesn’t have anything on it.
[00:20:19.510]So what we’ve done is we’ve set up the geometry
[00:20:21.810]for our cross section,
[00:20:23.197]and now we have to just right click on that
[00:20:25.560]and select evaluations
[00:20:28.280]to actually choose which model
[00:20:30.070]we want to evaluate onto that.
[00:20:32.400]So we can actually evaluate our geologic model,
[00:20:35.080]and also in this case, a numeric model of some RQD data,
[00:20:39.212]and we can go ahead and press OK.
[00:20:42.570]And you can see that we now have a cross section generated.
[00:20:47.480]And so, this is a cross-section evaluation, as we call them,
[00:20:52.400]that can be exported for slope stability analysis
[00:20:56.760]or to other geo-technical analysis softwares.
[00:20:59.980]Or you can also then go in here
[00:21:02.120]and create a new section layout of that object.
[00:21:05.496]So if we wanted to actually create a presentation
[00:21:08.270]where the section layout,
[00:21:09.810]we could come in here and create a PDF of this,
[00:21:14.678]and we can do a ton here where we have an entire layout tree
[00:21:18.610]where we can add boreholes and other objects to this.
[00:21:23.130]We can add a title and a title bar, text box, images,
[00:21:26.748]annotations, and other objects as well.
[00:21:30.710]So I do think it’s nice to show
[00:21:32.650]you can also add these boreholes on there.
[00:21:34.740]It’s one of my favorite things.
[00:21:37.020]And you know, if we want to display these boreholes.
[00:21:43.610]So now we can actually see those boreholes
[00:21:45.670]projected onto that cross section.
[00:21:49.203]There’s a lot of other things
[00:21:51.390]that we could include here as well.
[00:22:03.830]All right, another question,
[00:22:05.630]what if I want to include new data in an existing project?
[00:22:10.500]How long does it take to redo everything?
[00:22:14.120]<v Gary>Really good question,</v>
[00:22:15.670]and I think I have something here that might,
[00:22:18.160]this previous slide might show this as well.
[00:22:21.140]So here we have a cross section
[00:22:22.910]that was built off of an existing geologic model.
[00:22:25.960]If we want it to come in here and modify, for example,
[00:22:28.730]the water context or anything in this geologic model,
[00:22:32.591]everything that’s linked to it, so this cross section,
[00:22:35.828]would then also automatically reprocess.
[00:22:38.380]And so, Leapfrog is dynamically linked.
[00:22:41.576]And if you use any object or any data point
[00:22:45.719]in that project and you update that,
[00:22:49.560]everything else that is linked to that will also be updated.
[00:22:53.302]One of the really cool things to point out, I think,
[00:22:56.220]and it can save you a ton of time.
[00:22:58.270]If you don’t want things to reprocess,
[00:23:00.280]you can also now freeze them.
[00:23:02.090]So that is a cool new option.
[00:23:07.680]<v Mikayla>All right.</v>
[00:23:09.130]Another question, why doesn’t Leapfrog View work for me?
[00:23:14.720]I can’t find in, do I need a special license?
[00:23:19.133]<v Gary>Aha, so I’ve seen quite a few people</v>
[00:23:21.600]run into issues with View in the past.
[00:23:24.805]There’s two things that normally resolve this.
[00:23:28.100]One of them is going to be,
[00:23:29.540]so if I jump back into View,
[00:23:32.626]you will want to sign into View first.
[00:23:36.070]So you will want to go to leapfrogview.com
[00:23:39.640]and sign in using your existing account.
[00:23:43.340]So if you do have an existing account,
[00:23:47.360]if not, you’ll want to sign up and just set up an account.
[00:23:51.210]Once you’ve signed in at leapfrogview.com,
[00:23:54.020]you should be able to go within Leapfrog
[00:23:56.220]and go ahead and upload to Leapfrog View.
[00:23:59.140]The one thing that is, you know,
[00:24:00.800]good to consider is what browser you were using.
[00:24:03.560]And so, Edge and Internet Explorer
[00:24:05.980]are not currently supported,
[00:24:07.540]and so we always recommend using Chrome and Firefox
[00:24:11.350]as these are the most robust browsers on the market.
[00:24:21.360]All right, another question,
[00:24:23.834]what resources do you offer if I am new to Leapfrog?
[00:24:28.760]How do I get trained?
[00:24:32.420]<v Gary>Awesome question.</v>
[00:24:33.890]We know that life as a consultant,
[00:24:37.010]it is not easy to learn new things,
[00:24:38.750]and it’s not easy to obtain time off
[00:24:41.000]to go do in-person training.
[00:24:43.770]And so what we have set up is free online training
[00:24:46.860]and free online resources that are there for you.
[00:24:50.490]We also do offer support with all commercial agreements
[00:24:54.470]free of charge.
[00:24:55.303]So, you know, if you’re on a trial
[00:24:57.340]or if you are a current user,
[00:24:58.640]definitely don’t hesitate to reach out to us at support.
[00:25:01.700]Our online training is comprehensive.
[00:25:04.380]It does supply you with a demo data set as well
[00:25:08.690]to run through, and it can be accessed
[00:25:11.910]on your My Seequent Portal under the releases page
[00:25:14.560]for Leapfrog Works.
[00:25:17.300]The one thing that I think I might want to mention
[00:25:19.960]right at the end is that I do think a really cool tool
[00:25:24.430]about Leapfrog is that it is built with the geologist
[00:25:28.330]and by geologists and with geologists in mind.
[00:25:32.420]And so when you’re actually going through
[00:25:33.870]and building surfaces in Leapfrog,
[00:25:35.550]I think it’s cool to point out that they are named after,
[00:25:38.810]you know, the geologic unit
[00:25:40.210]they’re supposed to correspond to.
[00:25:42.100]So when you’re actually going through
[00:25:43.210]and constructing surfaces or chopping up your model
[00:25:46.230]into different output volumes,
[00:25:48.450]you actually have the option to use surfaces
[00:25:51.380]that might correspond and look like what you know them
[00:25:53.700]to look like in real life.
[00:25:55.180]So whether it’s a deposit, an erosion,
[00:25:57.170]or an unconformity surface, an intrusion, a vein,
[00:26:01.740]a structural surface, or just a clear stratigraphy,
[00:26:05.186]definitely check out the different options that you have
[00:26:08.400]for building surfaces in Leapfrog.
[00:26:10.540]And don’t get stuck to one surface.
[00:26:12.540]For example, if you have a lens,
[00:26:14.400]it might be best modeled as a vein
[00:26:16.700]but there’s going to be an option here
[00:26:18.640]that’s going to best resemble whichever surface
[00:26:20.940]you’re trying to build.
[00:26:22.660]That’s just one cool little thing.
[00:26:24.340]And also the surface chronology
[00:26:26.120]is pretty much a strat column, so keep in mind
[00:26:29.041]it’s going to abide by the laws
[00:26:31.190]of horizontality and superposition.
[00:26:33.110]So if a vein is listed as younger than a deposit,
[00:26:36.440]it’s going to cut through it and vice versa.
[00:26:44.570]All right, yeah.
[00:26:45.700]Well, thank you.
[00:26:48.140]Well, thanks Gary,
[00:26:50.440]and things to everyone for attending today’s webinar
