  • Publication number: 20090157322
    Abstract: Systems and methods for enhancing the resolution of a seismic data image displayed on a face of a sampling probe. The enhanced image represents a maximum resolution of at least a portion of the seismic data image. The seismic data image is enhanced by extracting seismic data that are perpendicular to a reflection surface that is closest to a center of the sampling probe and positioning the extracted seismic data in a visible planar face of the sampling probe.

  • Publication number: 20080297510
    Abstract: Irregular volumes within one or more three-dimensional volume datasets are identified and extracted in response to criteria. The processing involves automatically finding a seed voxel or seed cell that0 meets the criteria and thus belongs to an irregular volume of interest, and then identifying cells related to the seed cell by one or more predetermined relationships that are therefore also to be grouped into that irregular volume. Information, which can be of any suitable type, identifying each such cell as being related to other cells and belonging to an irregular volume is stored in a suitable data structure. The location or similar neighborhood information and other data describing properties or attributes of the identified cell are also stored. Because the irregular volumes are extracted and pre-processed in this manner, operations including rendering them on a display and performing Boolean and arithmetic operations on them can readily be performed.

  • Publication number: 20080059074
    Abstract: Systems and methods for imaging waveform volumes. An image of the waveform volume may be drawn on a display device as a two-dimensional image or a three-dimensional image of a sampling probe and redrawn in real-time at interactive rates using a graphics accelerator or a graphics card. The image of the waveform volume may also include seismic-data traces that are color-filled according to texture coordinates for pixels on the display device that intersect the waveform volume.

  • Patent number: 6768947
    Abstract: A system and method for uniquely identifying seismic data sets, wherein the system and method associate a unique seismic data set identifier with a seismic data set, wherein the unique seismic data set identifier identifies the seismic data set by being different from all other unique seismic data set identifiers associated with other seismic data sets. The unique seismic data set identifier for the seismic data set is published within a directory, thus allowing the seismic data set to be found within a computer system or network of systems by the unique seismic data set identifier that is associated with the seismic data set.
