What? This web application does a fuzzy lookup of wireline log mnemonics. Given any string, it returns the best guess(es) from its database. It used to be called fuzzyLAS but then we realized that's a horrible name.
Whence? The database was compiled and curated from the resources the SPWLA used to have on its website.
Why? The app is an experiment to see if we could improve on existing curve search, especially providing a machine-readable output, and to help us learn to program.
The data were downloaded, concatenated, and curated from the SPWLA's useful cross-company resources.
This web app is running on the amazing Google App Engine.
