    o 4 GB Memory
    o Internet access (for updates, maps, and additional services)

    Setup from Internet:
    Contact Lasser support for an online account name and account password if you have not already received one. Lasser will require you public IP address to secure the online account information.

    Installing LPD Atlas requires a Windows user with ‘Administrative’ rights.

    Open a web browser and visit ftp://ftp.lasser.com/beta/LPD_Atlas(x64)-Setup.exe to download then install the LPD Atlas Setup program. It is recommended that you accept all of the defaults during installation.
    After LPD Atlas is installed, double click the Atlas icon on your Desktop to start the application.

    • When the program starts, you will be prompted to select a default database
    • If you do not already have a database click “No” and from the main screen then click on “Data” on the toolbar and choose “Check for Updates”
    • When prompted enter the Account Name and Account Password provided to you by Lasser and click OK
    • Select one or more databases the click “Download Updates” and after the download is complete click on “Apply Updates”
    • Click ‘Yes” to apply the update, then click “Close”
    • Choose “Yes” when asked if you want to save your changes as this will allow the program to automatically check for database updates
    • Click “File” on the toolbar and choose “Open Project” then double-click on the Default.lp4 file
    • You will be prompted to select a database, and this time click on “Yes” and browse to C:\DATABASE and double-click on the “TX.DB” or the database file that you will use for the default project
    • When prompted click on “Yes” to save the database for use with the default project then click “Yes” to proceed with the authorization

    LPD Atlas uses Crypkey copy protection software. If you followed all of the above steps you should see the Atlas Database Authorization Report page. If you do not see this page, please click on “Help” on the toolbar and choose the “LPD Atlas License Authorization Report.

    • With the LPD Authorization Program being displayed, please call
    1(800) 489-3282 and ask for support to get a license key
    • Alternatively, you can click on “File” (on the toolbar of the window) and choose “Print” to print if you want to print and fax the license request, or click “Email Authorization Request” to email us the request.

    If the license request is sent via fax or email, we will send the activation code, and instructions for entering the code, back to you the same way that we receive the request. The code must be entered and accepted by the program before you can use the LPD program.

    Getting Started:
    You should now be ready to use the Atlas program. If you exited Atlas after entering the license key you can restart the program by double-clicking the Atlas icon on your Desktop

    Adding Search Criteria:
    By default, when you open a project having no previously added search criteria, you will be shown the ‘Search Criteria’ window. Make a selection in the “Step 1: Select Search Critera” section (example: Operator Name).

    Then click into the “Step 2: Type Your Search Phrase” box and type the information you are looking for. For example, if you selected ‘Operator’ for your criteria, you can type in “Exxon” to see a list of operators that begin with Exxon.

    Note: You can also put in part of a word, such as “Ex” if you want to see all operators that have names beginning with EX.

    The results of the search will be shown in the “Step 3: Select Search Results” box. You can select one or more of the results, then click on the button called “Step 4: Add and View Search Results” to load the main grid with information,

    Main Grid:
    The Main Grid is a user configurable one-line report that will show you a list of producing entities (leases) of your choosing. By default, the grid is blank when you open the default project. You must add search criteria in order for the Main Grid to become populated with data. Once the grid is loaded with information, you can edit the columns displayed by right-clicking the mouse while positioned over the grid, and choosing ‘Edit Grid Style File.’

    Viewing Maps and Report/Graphs On-Screen:
    Once the Main Grid is loaded with a set of information, each row will contain information related to the producing entity (either a lease or well depending on the State’s reporting requirements).

    Above the Main Grid you will see a Map Detail window on the left and a Lease Detail Report window on the right to view reports and graphs. These windows can be resized or closed to meet your preference. If you close the Map or Report windows, you can click on “View” on the toolbar and select to reactivate the window(s).

    You can also click on “Window” on the toolbar and select one or more external Map Detail window(s) or Lease Detail window(s). Note: when you close an external Map Detail or Lease Detail window, Atlas will remember the position and selected map or report options.

    Printing Reports/Graphs:
    With your main grid loaded with data, click on ‘File’ and choose ‘Reports and Graphs’. You are able to select which printer you would like to use, whether you want to print the current row, all properties on the grid, or selected properties on the grid. If you select more than one report, then all selected reports will print on each lease.

    Exporting Data:
    With your main grid loaded with data, click on ‘File’ and choose ‘Exports’. You are able to select the export that you wish to create, and can choose to export all of the properties in the grid, selected rows, or just the current row. Most 3rd party applications have an import for the “LPD Data Dump (All Data) V2” export (also called a PRN export because we use a .PRN extension).

    Tips and Tricks:

    • There are 3 main map types

    o Well Location Map
    o Heat Maps
    o Sized Circle Map

    • Each map can be set to view all rows on grid, selected rows on grid, or current row
    • Maps have layer panels in the upper right of the map that allows you to select various items to map, map styles, and layers
    • Using a Solid-State Hard Drive (SSD) provides up to 10 times faster read speeds and 5 times faster write speeds than standard SATA hard drives when using a SATA 2 connection.
    • If you save a project to your Desktop, you can double-click the project to open it directly.
    • LPD uses a lot of right-click mouse actions. Many reports and graphs can be customized by right-clicking.
    • Quickly add a filter to the main grid by right-clicking the mouse on a cell, and choose ‘Add Filter Criteria’. For example, you could add a filter of STATUS=ACT or limit the grid to a particular Operator using this method.
    • You can reload the grid by “Well” to have the program show 1 result row per well, instead of one row per lease. Useful to list well data on multi-well leases.
    • You can load a list of wells within a radius by right clicking on a lease/well in the grid and choosing the option to ‘Get Wells Within Radius’
    • You can send your data search to a map using Google Earth. After Google Earth is installed, simply click the Google Earth icon with a data set loaded.
    • Microsoft Map Point is a program that you must purchase separately to use, but with it you can create bubble maps and draw horizontal lines between the surface and bottom lat/long points of your data set.
    • From the ‘Main Grid’ you can use ‘File”, ‘Project Properties’ to set date limits or configure other aspects of your project.
    • Quickly copy the main grid data to Microsoft Excel by using the ‘Copy to Excel’ icon on the toolbar. Note: You must have a licensed version of Excel installed for this feature to work.
    • You can summarize the data on the grid using the ‘Sigma’ icon on the toolbar. When doing a summary, you can choose from a standard “Calendar Date” summary or a “Time Zero” summary.
    • Quickly change the items displayed in the ‘Main Grid’ by right-clicking the mouse and choose ‘Edit Grid Style File’.
