What is PreView?

Weatherford’s PreView software is a free application used for opening DPK files. The DPK file extension is a proprietary one that Weatherford uses in its programs: DPK stands for the data package. The PreView application can open a DPK file and thus gain access to the data logs recorded by other Weatherford programs. It is these data logs that can then be used to create LAS, DLIS and LIS files for data management and inspection. PreView is actually capable of working with files other DPK-extension ones. For instance, it can also manage with black and white TIFs, PBMGZs and PPMGZs. All of these files can be opened, converted into the filetypes mentioned above, annotated, and exported to print. Furthermore, since the program allows multi-image comparison views, they can be put next to each other for comparative analysis.

At the moment, PreView is exclusive to Windows computers, requiring Mac users to find Windows emulation or compatibility solutions such as Bootcamp. The operating system versions with which it is compatible are Windows 98, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows 2000, with Vista getting 32-bit and 64-bit architecture support.
