Summary Plot Source Stepping

Summary Plot Source Stepping enables the user to efficiently step through multiple vectors, wells, summary cases, ensembles, groups, regions, blocks, and aquifers for plotting purposes. Source stepping is available from both the Source Stepping Toolbar and the Property editor as described below.

Source Stepping using the toolbar

The toolbar for source stepping is:

Following this example, the available options are:

  • Explicitly setting Step By to vector WBHP by
  • Change existing plot to display previous or next vector by pressing one of the buttons
  • Step previous or next vector and add a plot by the buttons
  • Step previous or next vector and add a curve by the buttons

Source Stepping using the Property Editor

Source Stepping is also available through the Property Editor. By selecting a subplot in Plots as in the example below, the Data Sources section of the Property editor emerges. As seen, ResInsight per default lists the most probable stepping dimensions by a consideration of the actual plot being a vector of a specific well.

Source Stepping dimensions

ResInsight decides default step dimensions based on a consideration of visible curves in the current plot or subplot. For instance, well stepping is set as default if all curves display data from the same well, c.f. examples above. However, the complete set of source stepping dimensions is always available in both the toolbar and Property Editor:

  • Vector
  • Well
  • Summary Case
  • Ensemble
  • Group
  • Region
  • Block
  • Aquifer

When clicking a next or previous button, all curves are changed to display data for the selected source stepping dimension. For instance, when clicking with Well as source stepping dimension, all curves in the current plot are changed to display data for previous/next well.
