11.2. Interaction flow

In the following section, we will show step-by-step how to connect to Corelyzer from Correlator to use available core images assisting choosing tie points in creating affine tables.

11.2.1. Start Corelyzer

Double click on the Corelyzer icon to start Corelyzer. You might want to properly setup the visualization area of Corelyzer if you do not want it overlaps with Correlator's data plot window. Please refer to Corelyzer Display Configuration section for setting up Corelyzer visualization area.

11.2.2. Start Correlator

Double click on the Correlator icon to start Correlator. Please refer to Correlator documentation for start using Correlator.

11.2.3. Load log data tables and image list table

Before using the fine tune function, you have to make sure you have loaded both the data table and the image table of the cores. Please refer to Correlator document on "How to load data files into Correlator Data Manager".

In the following example, 3 data files (Bulk Density GRA) and a image list data file are loaded into Correlator's Data Manager.

11.2.4. Load log data into Correlator plotting area

Right click on the log data entries and select "Load" to load the data into the plotting area in the Correlator.

The data will be plotted in the Correlator window. In the following screenshot, it shows a 1920x1200 screen with Corelyzer showing in the left half and Correlator showing the right half with log data loaded and plotted.

11.2.5. Connect to Corelyzer from Correlator

Click on the "Connect to Corelyzer" button on the Correlator command window as shown in the following screenshot.

A confirmation dialog will popup asking whether you want to unload previous loaded images in Corelyzer. Click on "YES" will unload previous tracks and images in Corelyzer.

After successfully connected, if the user use the scrollbar in Correlator to change the viewing depth range, the view range will also be updated accordingly in the Corelyzer visualization area.

11.2.6. Composite depth shifting with core images

Core images will be loaded in the Corelyzer side, if the connection between Correlator and Corelyzer is established during choosing both 2 tie points (red and green points) in Correlator. A red horizontal line will appear in the Corelyzer as the reference tie depth.

Dragging the green tie point in Correlator like you always do, it will update/shift the core images accordingly like the data plots segments. You can use the core image texture for correlation reference.

Figure 11.9. Adjusting tie points also updates core images

Adjusting tie points also updates core images

If you right click the (green) tie point and select the "Clear" option, the core images will be placed to their original position. After your adjustments, right click on the (green) tie point to choose adjustment option as described in Correlator document. The core images will be positioned using the result affine table. If you click on the "Undo To" button in the Correlator, the affine table will be restored and re-read by Corelyzer to shift core images according to the affine table.

When you disconnect from Corelyzer, a dialog will popup in Corelyzer main window. By default selecting "YES" it will close all opened core images during the composite session. If you want to keep the arrangements setup on screen, you can save the session file as described in the "Save and Load Sessions".
