  • Patent number: 9639235
    Abstract: A visualization system for providing a preview of data obtained in a borehole and available for selection and a helmet for visualization and monitoring are described. The visualization system includes a processor configured to process the data based on user input and instructions and provide output for display on a display device; a computer-readable medium configured to store the instructions, the instructions including commands to output values of two or more types of parameters at two or more depth values for display; and a helmet including a visor configured to display the values of the two or more types of parameters at the two or more depth values.

  • Patent number: 9153050
    Abstract: A visualization system for visualizing data obtained in a borehole includes a processor configured to process the data based on user input and instructions and provide output for display on a display device. The system may also include a computer-readable medium configured to store the instructions, the instructions including commands to output values of two or more types of parameters at two or more depth values. The instructions may include commands to provide a perspective top-down or bottom-up fly-through display of the borehole including a zoomed-in image of values closest to a user. The processor may also output a display of a photographic image at each of the two or more depth values based on a correspondence between the values of the two or more types of parameters and the plurality of parameters associated with the photographic image.

  • Publication number: 20140152659
    Abstract: A method for presenting measurements of properties of a subsurface material to a user includes: conveying a carrier through a borehole penetrating the subsurface material; performing a plurality of measurements of multiple properties of the subsurface material at multiple depths in the borehole using a plurality of downhole tools disposed at the carrier; constructing, with a processor, a three-dimensional mathematical model of the subsurface material using the plurality of measurements, the model having data from the plurality of measurements of the multiple properties; receiving, with the processor, an input from a user directing the processor to generate a three-dimensional image of the subsurface material as seen from a virtual viewer-window viewing the model, the input having a three-dimensional position and three-dimensional viewing direction of the virtual-viewer window within the model; generating the three-dimensional image with the processor; and displaying the generated three-dimensional image on a
