Import Dips Joint Data

Dips is a program for the graphical and statistical analysis of structural geology data using spherical projection techniques, available from Rocscience. If you are not familiar with Dips, visit the Rocscience website at www.rocscience.com for more information.

Orientation data can be imported from Dips into SWedge, by selecting the Import from Dips option in the Input Data dialog. The data which can be imported depends on the SWedge Analysis Type (Deterministic, Probabilistic or Combinations), as described below.

NOTE: SWedge supports import of files from Dips versions 5.0, 6.0, 7.0 and 8.0:

  • Dips version 8 file types: *.dips8 / *.dipsvs
  • Dips version 7 file types: *.dips7 / *.dipsvs
  • Dips version 6 file types: *.dips6 / *.dipsvs
  • Dips version 5 file types: *.dip / *.dwp

Deterministic

If the SWedge Analysis Type = Deterministic, you can import individual plane orientations from a Dips .dwp file (version 5) or .dipsvs file (version 6), and assign the orientations to the Slope, Upper Face, Joint1, Joint2, or Tension Crack. See the Import from Dips (Deterministic) topic for more information.

Probabilistic

If the SWedge Analysis Type = Probabilistic, you can import mean orientations AND statistical joint set information (Fisher K value or standard deviation) from a Dips .dwp file (version 5) or .dipsvs file (version 6 and later), and assign the information to Joint1, Joint2 or Tension Crack. See the Import from Dips (Probabilistic) topic for more information.

Combinations

If the SWedge Analysis Type = Combinations, you can import any number of plane orientations from a Dips .dip file (version 5) or .dips6 file (version 6) / .dips7 (version 7) / .dips8 (version 8) and SWedge will analyze the stability of all possible joint combinations. See the Import from Dips (Combinations) topic for more information.
