  • Tool determines true dip from apparent dip on a vertical section, or vice versa.
  • To calculate True Dip, set Select Calculation to "true dip" and define Apparent Dip, Section Azimuth and Dip Azimuth.
  • To calculate Apparent Dip, set Select Calculation to "apparent dip" and define Section Azimuth, Dip Azimuth and True Dip.
  • 0 < Apparent Dip < 90 degrees (+ve down from horizontal)
  • 0 < Section Azimuth < 360 degrees (+ve clockwise from North)
  • 0 < Dip Azimuth < 360 degrees (+ve clockwise from North)
  • 0 < True Dip < 90 degrees (+ve down from horizontal)
