There are a number of powerful non-projection tools found in the 3D space of HawkEye™, many of which are exclusive to having a workable 3D space.


The Sight is an integral part of the 3D view in HawkEye™, a visual aid that follows the user’s point of view or “Look-at Point” along a curve. It is  customizable and can be toggled on and off.


HawkEye™ allows the user to append a projection to the end of any curve. This will be needed frequently for any user who needs to make a projection with any amount of complication. Fortunately, the process is intuitive and simple. The appended curve does not need to be added to the very end of a curve, and can be tied in at any point.


Interpolation is a method of constructing new data points within the range of a discrete set of known data points. In HawkEye™, the Interpolation tool allows the user to either merely CALL FOR A SURVEY ENTRY into a list, or to go ahead and use an interpolation point as a TIE-IN POINT for a sidetrack curve. Once inside the panel, there are two major choices: 1) to invoke either an MD or a TVD interpolation, and 2) whether to merely have that interpolation point or to use the point as a tie-in for a sidetrack curve.

The most notable aspect of interpolation in HawkEye is that the program is constantly interpolating in the 3D space. So when you travel up and down a well or planned well, any point that you're on is interpolated in a tiny fraction of a second, even if there was no survey station there.
