Since rock type will have a bearing on completion and drilling practices, you definitely want to know the results of wells with similar rock types. Normally, geologists, petrophysicists, and reservoir engineers who need to find data from wells and formations by rock type to perform evaluations have to plot out data in Excel, but making selections off of an Excel chart is impossible, and filtering table data can often end up being hit-or-miss. Instead, you could create a ternary diagram in TIBCO Spotfire paired with a geographic map of the location of the wells to perform formation evaluations. The Spotfire dashboard demo here provides interactive functionality with a well map and ternary diagram.

As you can see, there will be a direct bearing on what to pay for land in a shale oil or shale gas play when you monitor how the lithology of a formation is changing by moving your area of interest.
