The paper describes a new method for the calculation of standard-graphs i.e. resistivity-curves for assumed resistivity profiles. It starts from the integral of Stefanesco and arrives at a system of image poles, similar to, but simpler than earlier developed systems. The advantages of the new method are described, the accuracy is discussed and it is indicated how the accuracy can be improved by a simple artifice.
