ChatGPT Advanced Data Analytics For Custom Matplotlib Well Log Plots

ChatGPT’s Code Interpreter, now renamed to Advanced Data Analytics, has been out for some time now. It was launched on July 6th 2023, and is a plugin developed by OpenAI to allow users to upload data and perform analysis on it. This can range from cleaning the data, creating visualisations and summarising the data. Rather than

Converting Well Logging Data From DLIS Files to LAS File Format

Within the geoscience disciplines of the oil and gas industry, various formats are used to store well logging and petrophysical data. Two of the most common formats are LAS files and DLIS files. LAS files are flat ASCII files that can easily be read using any text editor, whereas DLIS files are structured binary files containing tables of information about

4 Essential Resources to Help Improve Your Data Visualisations

Creating compelling data visualisations is essential for any data scientist, geoscientist or petrophysicist. By learning these skills, we can ensure that we can convey our research and analysis results to our intended audience. By understanding our audience, we can tweak the charts and the messages accordingly. For example, we could have a more simplified and artistic chart

Create Eye-Catching Radial Bar Charts With Matplotlib

Radial bar charts are a visually attractive alternative to traditional bar charts. Data are plotted on a polar coordinate system instead of the conventional cartesian coordinate system. This allows the bars to be represented by rings rather than as vertical bars. Radial bar charts can make a great and visually appealing graphic to include in

9 Creative Alternatives to the Traditional Pie Chart for Data Visualisation

Pie charts are a commonly used, easy to create circular graphic for visualising the relative sizes of different categories that contribute to a whole. Each slice within the pie chart represents a category, and its size is relative to its contribution. They are useful visualisations when dealing with a limited number of categories. Even though
