The Well Symbols option gives you the standard well icons you might see in other systems. Things like a green dot for oil or a red gear for gas. The icons will only appear on the bottom hole, but you can still customize the view.

Here are a few examples of maps using the well symbols.

Bubble Map

Bubble maps are a great way to get a view of the variance of values over your search area. While you do get a very similar view on the Colorized Groups using the Size By property, the bubble map creates a prettier picture.

The bubbles are placed on the bottom hole location. The bubble settings are pretty straightforward

The Based On field is simply a choice of what property you’d like to use to create the map. The Radius Size is a base size of the circle used for the smallest value of the property your bubble map is based upon.

Heat Map

The heat map is very similar to the bubble map in many ways. You have the same settings, but the radius size allows you to blend spots together as it increases.

Standard heat map settings.

Below we have two heat maps using the same property, just with different radius sizes. The first separates out the well values where they are more distinctive.

By raising the radius, we allow the larger values to bleed into each other and create a wider trend in our map area.

With all of the map options in WellDatabase, there is next to nothing you can’t do.
